What is Ramadan?

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and a time when Muslims across the world will fast during the hours of daylight.

Ramadan is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam.

The Qur'an was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) during this month.
The actual night that the Qur'an was revealed is a night known as Lailut ul-Qadr ('The Night of Power').

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه said:
"The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: 'There has come to you Ramadan, a blessed month, which Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has enjoined you to fast. In it the gates of heavens are opened and the gates of Hell are closed, and every devil is chained up. In it Allah has a night which is better than a thousand months; whoever is deprived of its goodness is indeed deprived."'
[Sunan an-Nasa'i 2106]


Taraweeh

We have been praying Taraweeh prayers in congregation for the last few years.

We will be praying Taraweeh in the HUB this year, except on March 16th when we will be praying in Blue School.
Sisters and children are welcome to attend.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who observes optional prayer (Taraweeh prayers) throughout Ramadan, out of sincerity of Faith and in the hope of earning reward will have his past sins pardoned."
[Al- Bukhari and Muslim]


Qiyaam al-layl

We will be praying Qiyaam al-layl for the last 10 nights in congregation.

Narrated `Aisha (RA):
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) used to practice I`tikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, "Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan."

Sahih al-Bukhari Book 32, Hadith 7

Zakat al-Fitr

Please pay Zakat al-Fitr (£7 per person in the household) before 20th Ramadan, so it can reach the needy in time for Eid.

The Prophet (ﷺ) ordered the people to pay Zakat-ul-Fitr before going to the `Id prayer.

Simply memorise just one verse of the Surah every day in the month of Ramadan. By the end of the month, you will have memorised the entire Surah In’sha Allah. Read here, about the details.


Foodbank

We have been running a foodbank for the last few years, and more recently have supported the community through the Cambourne’s Volunteer Task Force (COVID-19).
We have used a request and deliver model for the last year, those in need send us an email/message and we shop and deliver for them.
