Collections during Ramadan

Posted May 18th, 2018 by admin and filed in Ramadan

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Dear all,

Just some important information on collections during Ramadaan.

1 – Fidyaht – Compensation for missed fasting that cannot be made up):

Payable for everyday of missed fast. either as a satisfying meal, or half a Saa’ă of reservable food of what people can reserve for later. like rice parly wheat pulses…etc. The average cost of this in Damascus presently about £2.50.

2 – Zakaatul Fitr (also known as Fitra or Fitrana -in urdo)
This  payable in preservable food only. One Ssaa’ă of (grain rice wheat etc, dates or raisins) per person in the family regardless of their age. The average cost of this is about £4 to £5 per person. If you want to give Saa’ă of dates then the cost of this rises to above £10.

3 – Zakaatul maal (financial Zakaht)

The most common is the 2.5% of saved income of gold/silver that has been saved in your position for a whole lunar year. For more details of this Zakat PLEASE refer to the fiqh books like “FIQHU SUNNAH” for imam Sayyed Sabiq
فقه السنة
الإمام سيد سابق
رحمه الله وجزاه خيرا .

 

⭕we are aiming to complete the collection for the above by the end of the second week of Ramadan. This will give us chance to send the money over and for the organisers over there to sort out buying and distributing without causing hardship of last minute rush.

Collections will be during our Taraweeh prayers at
Thomas Wall Centre
52 Benhill Avenue, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 4DP

or

Friday Prayers at:

New Malden Juma’h
(12:50 Start.)
Shiraz Mirza Community Hall
Manor Park
Malden Road
New Malden
KT3 6AU

Essential requirements
PLEASE do:
place your donations in envelopes stating the amount, and if for:
– Fidyaht, then write for how many days

– Fitra, then write on behalf of how many people

– Zakaatul Maal then just write ZAKAT

If your donation is for normal charity then write Sadaqaht or charity.

PLEASE NOTE: The last two weeks of Ramadan we will only collect for Companions Of the Mosque projects support.

جزاكم الله خيرا وتقبل منا ومنكم صالح الأعمال.

Finally, inshaaAllah see you all tonight 10:30 for 10:45 start.

Ramadaan 1439 (2018) & the Thomas Wall Centre

Posted May 15th, 2018 by admin and filed in General

Assalamu’alaikum All,

Just a few words about Ramadaan: we start and finish Ramadan in sync with Makka.
so Tuesday will be 29 Sha’baan, thus Ramadan may start Wednesday, or Thursday if Sha’baan complete 30 days. depending on new Crescent sightings.

How do we know??

🕢 About 6:30pm (our time) they would be praying Isha in Makkaht مكة المكرمة.
So on Tuesday please go on the internet watching Makkah life. If after Isha they pray Taraweeh then we know that fasting starts Wednesday, otherwise it’ll start Thursday.

COM’s Taraweeh Prayers :
We have booked the hall at Thomas Wall Centre from 10:30 to 12:00 midnight. We (إن شاء الله ) shall start on Tuesday. If RAMADAN is on Wednesday then we pray Taraweeh, otherwise if starts on Thursday then we just pray Isha.

Please note:

– congregation prayer shall start at 10:45 pm.

– If you would like to help preparing the hall laying down the prayer Matt’s etc then please arrive at 10:30 Sharp.

– PLEASE bring your own drinking water with you.
or
there is free fresh drinking water tap at the hall.

– please park your car in the centre’s car park. But leave the end three spaces by the tree for disabled parking.

– if the car park is full then please park on the main road (Ben hill Ave). or the roads opposite the centre.
– please do not park on the the road adjacent (Lenham Road).

– if you want to chat to your friends then please do it inside the hall, or inside your car, but not in the car park as this may disturb the neighbors or the residents of the centre.

The hall will be open at 10:30 for 10:45 start. If you would like to volunteer sharing the duties of opening the hall etc then please contact br Mohammad Kabeer who will put you on the Rota.

We will be posting more information regarding zakat fidyah fitraht and general sadaqaht, later on inshaaAllah

Quran Memorisation Class – FREE!

Posted September 8th, 2017 by admin and filed in General

As salamu alaikum,

Now that the summer is over and we have celebrated the Eid, it’s time for our classes at the Civic Offices to resume.

We will be honoured by a special course from Dr Islam on memorising the Qur’an with understanding.

The classes will be on Friday evenings 7pm to 9.30pm, starting this Friday 8 September, and Wednesday evenings 7.30pm to 9.30pm starting next Wednesday 13 September.

Dr Islam taught a part of this course at Markfield this year and I’m sure all would agree that it was very beneficial – however even those who attended Markfield are encouraged to come as more surahs will be covered insha Allah.

I hope to see you on Friday!

And the Monday brothers tajweed class will resume this coming Monday 11 September, at 7.30pm insha Allah.

Assalamu alaikum,

 

Just another reminder, we have a special friend of COM visiting us today for the classes at the Civic offices: Shaikh Wasim Kimspon. For those who don’t know him, he has been a part of COM for the last 10 years, and although we don’t see him much now, he is prolific in delivering dawah in various communities and the inter-web… probably why we don’t see him much! Please come if you can.

Here is our friend on TV:
