You are invited for 2 days
of worship, reflection & spiritual companionship
We are drawing nearer to the most spiritual days of the entire year. Insha’allah, sunset on August 21st begins the 1st night of 10 days & nights of the lunar month of Dhul-Hijjah, the month of the Hajj (pilgrimage) & the last lunar month of the spiritual calendar. These 1st 10 days & nights are so great that Allah, Exalted is He, swore an oath by them in Surah Fajr (89) to bring our attention to their spiritual significance hidden in them. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said ‘There are no days during which good deeds are more beloved to Allah than during these 10 days’ (Bukhari)
We will be gathering on the Day of ‘Arafat to fast (for those able), pray, make dhikr & dua’, and teachings to discuss the meanings of Hajj.
After breaking the fast, we will make dhikr & pray salatul-tasbih.
Then in the morning, we will have the Eid Prayer & Khutbah, followed by Eid feast & slaughtering an animal in the tradition of Prophets Ibrahim, Isma’il & Muhammad (peace be upon them all). If you would like to arrange to slaughter a sheep in person, please contact ……… Or you could arrange to have a sheep slaughtered in your name through ….
Regardless of whether you can make the event in person or not, everyone is encouraged to make much dhikr, prayer, fasting & charity during these 10 days/nights.
