Eid confirmed for tomorrow Friday 17th July 2015

Posted July 16th, 2015 by admin and filed in Ramadan

Assalamu alaikum,

Dear All,

Just to let you all know, it’s been confirmed straight from the Sheiks mouth: the moon has been sighted in Saudi and therefore Eid has been confirmed for tomorrow July 17 2015.

 

Please do:

– Arrive by 10am latest, the Salaah will start at 10.30am sharp. Car space is limited so please arrive early to avoid the rush.

– Bring a mat

– Bring some finger food to share with your Muslim brothers and sisters – (Personally I like anything with lamb!!)

– Bring your children, wives, sisters, brothers, parents

 

When you arrive, please:

– Sit on the sitting area, please NO strolling or milling around talking to friends

– Please listen to Khutbah – this is IMPORTANT, else you will spoil your salaat

– Please do not rush off after Salaah, enjoy the day with us, there is something for everyone!

Lastly, if you are able to volunteer to help clear up after the event, this will be much appreciated, many hands make light work after all!

URGENT:: Eid Al-Fitr 1436 (July 2015) – Helpers required

Posted July 10th, 2015 by admin and filed in Ramadan

Eid-in-the-park-2014-v1.pdfAssalaam alaikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuh

Dear All

Insha-allah we will be holding our Eid event for the 5th consecutive year!

If you’ve never been, it’s going to be “Awesome” or as the young G say nowadays “EPIC”.

Salaat will be at 10.30am sharp. For this to happen we need helpers. Helpers. Helpers and more helpers.

 

The main reason its such a hit is we have enough volunteers registering their commitments in good time for us to go ahead.

Ahad -The Event Manager- is looking for at least 30 volunteers that they would commit themselves from start to finish, i.e. from 7:00 am for an hour and  again at 2:00 pm for an hour on the day.

We need volunteers are required for the day and night before.

Clearing up time really depends on how many people are doing it , many hands makes light work!

This event is to revive the Sunnah of gathering all of the town community out in the open to pray and celebrate the Eid, and to mainly make it a memorable event for our children.

Many of you will say “I can’t commit because we are visiting / we have visitors / we have family…”

To those I say: remember all volunteers in COM also have other personal commitments, visitors and families too. But maybe if you think about the rewards that Allah may grant them for sacrificing their own needs in order to help other people having a memorable day, this may make you feel jealous enough to wanting to have these rewards too.

If you want to be active accumulating rewards then please contact Ahad (mobile 07713 189 032, or email ahad@companionsofthemosque.com)

Yours Brotherly
