New Madrasah Timings

 

*New Madrasah Timings*

Dear Parents,

Assalamualaikum,

I am writing to inform you that Madrasah timings will significantly change from next week.

To ensure social distancing during the pandemic, we reluctantly made the decision to hold some of the classes in the main prayer hall downstairs. Now that winter is approaching and salah times occur during Madrasah times, we no longer feel it is advisable to continue using the downstairs hall for Madrasah classes as this will be in violation of our child safety and protection policy.

Therefore, to manage the ever increasing numbers, we have decided to try out a new system in which children will be attending with their groups three times a week.

I realise that these new timings are significantly different and every parent must decide whether it is suitable for their children to continue attending the Madrasah. There will be a strong expectation that all children who do continue will attend 3 days a week.

The new Madrasah timings will be as follows:

*Qaidah Children:*

Monday 4pm to 6pm
Wednesday 4pm to 6pm
Saturday 11am to 1pm

*Quran and Juz Amma Children:*

Tuesday 4pm to 6pm
Thursday 4pm to 6pm
Sunday 11am to 1pm

These timings will be reviewed during the half term break in October.

Please let me know if for whatever reason your children will not be attending Madrasah in the new term.

As always, our decisions are made keeping the steady progress, safety as well as the physical and emotional wellbeing of every child in mind.

Jazakallah in advance for your understanding.

Books for Gaza Project

 

Assalaam-alaikum.

Worthing Masjid is pleased to be supporting the Books for Gaza project, which aims to provide much-needed books to the people of Gaza.

For our brothers, sisters and children in Islam living in Gaza, books can be a great source of hope, inspiration and education, but they are hard to come by.

To support this project, we’ll be collecting book donations at Worthing Masjid. If you have books in either English or Arabic to donate please place them in the box marked “Books for Gaza” inside the entrance of the Masjid by Jumuah Salah on *Friday 27th August*.

We ask that donated books are either new or in good as new condition. All books are welcome, and in particular children’s books.

May Allah reward you for your support.

Ameen.

Collection of funds for Iftar and Suhoor

 

Assalamualaikum,

Dear brothers and sisters,

I am writing to inform you that Worthing Masjid is no longer collecting funds to provide Iftar and sahoor for members of our community who for various reasons are in need of support. We believe that we now have sufficient funds for this purpose.

I would like to thank all those who made a donation and assisted in delivery. (Jazak Allah) I have been overwhelmed by your generosity. May Allah reward you in this world and the hereafter.
(Ameen)

Donations to our general masjid funds are still being received gratefully. If you had intended to donate to the above cause and missed out, you may wish to make a general donation instead.

The Masjid has many overheads and due to the current circumstances, our income has been severely restricted.

May Allah reward you for your generosity.

*Message from Worthing Masjid on the eve of Ramadhan*

 

*Message from Worthing Masjid on the eve of Ramadhan*

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullaahi Wabarakaatuh.

Saudi Moonsighting Authorities have confirmed that the first day of Ramadhan (fasting) will be on Tuesday 13th of April. This means that the first taraweeh salah will be offered tonight.( Monday 12th April )

Alhamdulillah we are most grateful to Allah SWA that unlike last year, the Masaajid will be open this year and we can congregate together to offer worship.

However, Please remember that we are in the midst of a pandemic and the following covid 19 guidelines still need to be observed:

[1] Make wudhu at home
[2] Wear a mask
[3] Remember to bring a prayer mat
[4] Sanitise your hands upon entering the masjid
[5] Maintain social
distancing at all times
[6] Due to limited spaces, sadly we still have no room for sisters
[7] No children below the age of 13
[8] Persons over 60 years old are advised not to attend
[9] Anyone with underlying
health conditions is advised not to attend
[10] Please stay away if you have any Covid or Flu symptoms.

Sadly, there will be no communal Iftar this year but we will be supporting vulnerable individuals and families by providing Suhoor and Iftar meals.

Please let me know if you require assistance or if you would like to contribute towards this project.

There will be two Jamaats for Taraweeh Salaah. Both will be Surah Taraweehs.
Once the Masjid is full, anyone waiting outside will have to go away and return for the next Taraweeh Jamaat. Entry is strictly on an order of arrival basis. Please offer Taraweeh Salah upstairs if you plan to leave early.

The Ramadhan timetable can be downloaded from the Masjid website: (www.worthingmasjid.co.uk) or from the Worthing Masjid facebook page.

Finally, I pray that Allah SWA grants all of us the most spiritually uplifting and blessed month of Ramadhan. I also pray that Allah S.W.A showers his mercy and forgiveness upon us so we can once again stand shoulder to shoulder in prayer and break fast together very soon. (Ameen)
