On the 27th of Rajab every year, Muslims celebrate Al-Isra Wal Miraj, the Night Journey to the Heavens, event in which the beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) travelled from Makkah to Jerusalem and from there he went beyond the seventh heaven until he reached the presence of Allah Almighty and witnessed the glorious countenance of the Lord of the heavens and the earth.
During the meeting between the Lord and His creation, Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was given a number of “gifts” for his followers – Muslims.
To celebrate this miracolous night journey and to remind ourselves of the gifts that we were granted so that we can value those Divine gifts, the following programmes will be held at Makkah Mosque on the following dates:
1) Tuesday 28 June after Maghrib prayer (09:45pm)
2) Saturday 2 July after Zuhr prayer (2:30pm)
The events are open to all brothers and sisters. Talks will be given in Urdu and English.
Part of the objective of organizing such events is to encourage our youth, our sisters and elders to participate by reciting the glorious Quran, reading nasheeds and naats in praise of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and delivering shorts talks on Islam.

The 7th month of Islamic calendar, Rajab, is when Muslims start calculating their zakat payable. Muslims from the Indian subcontinent , Pakistan, traditionally give their zakat in the month of Rajab.
Many Muslims have a lot of questions about Zakah. In particular, usually they are unsure how Zakah principles apply to certain commonly held assets such as shares/investment properties, debts owed etc and consequently may be incorrectly calculating their Zakah liability. Consequently the workshop will also cover the fundamentals of Zakah.
The workshop will be held on Saturday 11th June 2011, 12-2pm at Makkah Masjid.
The workshop is open to both brothers and sisters and literature will be available to participants to take away at the end of the session. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.
The workshop will be facilitated by Imam of Makkah Masjid, Qari Muhammad Asim.
The purpose of the workshop is to empower British Muslims with the information required to correctly discharge their Fasting & Zakah obligations.
The seminar is FREE but attendance is via REGISTRATION ONLY. Prior to the event, for the purposes of gender ratio, food, space and any changes so as to notify attendees, we would be grateful if those interested in the course could register by contacting us at email@example.com
