ashura-1437

Dear Readers,
Assalamu’alaykum,

 

We hope you are having a good week. The Day of Ashura which is the 10th day of Muharram, this year falls on Saturday, October 24. It is known as the most sacred day in the month of Muharram. Fasting is highly recommended on this day by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). According to a narration by Muslim, fasting on the day of Ashura expiates for the sins of the past year. Since the Jews also observe the Ashura, fasting on the 9th of Muharram was considered desirable by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to distinguish between Islam and Judaism.

We would like everyone to please take note of the different venue addresses of the activities this week. Jummah Prayer this Friday will be held at the Polish Community Centre on Fraser St. We ask that everyone please bring your own prayer mats. We are still in the process of securing a permanent home for Zawiyah Foundation. In the meantime these activities organized by Zawiyah Foundation continue to run and we will be sending out regular updates.

We wish everyone a blessed Day of Ashura.

With sincere salaam,
Zawiyah Admin
