As the days of Ramadan are speedily passing by, we shall take a moment to reflect upon spending time in our local Mosque.
Imagine this – After a long day at work, we often don’t have the time to cook a fresh meal for iftaar (breaking the fast meal). Yet your local Mosque is fully prepared with dates, water and a nice warm meal, freshly prepared by the local chef! Alhumdulilah, a perfect end to your fasting day in the comfort of our home during Ramadan – the local Mosque!
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, ‘Whoever feeds a person breaking his fast will earn the same reward as him, without anything being lessened from the reward of the fasting person’. [Tirmidhi]
The Mosque is a place in which we gather, worship, reflect and share food with each other during the month of Ramadan. Often we see the Mosques overflowing with crowds of people for the Taraweeh Prayer – a special night prayer during the month of Ramadan. The crowds, feeling joyous and motivated, return to the Mosque the following day.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, “Whoever prayed at night in it (the month of Ramadan) out of sincere Faith and hoping for a reward from Allah, then all his previous sins will be forgiven.” [Bukhari]
We at Islamic Centre of Britain hope to create a welcoming atmosphere during Ramadan,with a delicious cooked iftaar meal and a beautiful Mosque – Masjid Rahmania, for worship, contemplation and reflection. It will become your local hang out for the month of Ramadan,In’Sha’Allah!
