السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ,
Start of Ramadan 2020
Shahporan Masjid is pleased to announce that 1 Ramadan 1441 will be on Friday 24 April 2020. May Allah make this a blessed month for all of us, especially as we face the unprecedented restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
You can download a copy of the Ramadan Timetable via this link
We also have collection point for printed Ramadan timetable in 4 locations across Longsight. Kings cash and carry, Anmol meat shop on Beresford Road, Kashco on Slade Lane and Deshi Bazar on Meldon Road. Due to high demands these will be available from Monday 27th April at the above locations.
Unfortunately No tarawih will take place from Isha salah tonight as the Masjid is closed however, this will be resumed if the government declares we can reopen and we will make the announcement in due course.
We normally offer Iftar (breaking of the fast) every evening at Shahporan Masjid; but this year, as our Mosque is closed this will not take place.
Zakat al Fitr
Originally this was the giving of a certain amount of food to the needy, but nowadays most people give money to pay for the food. This has been set at £5, and should be paid for each and every member of the family, including children.
Zakat al Fitr can be paid from the beginning of Ramadan; we advise people to do so as early as possible, ideally before the 20th of Ramadan (13 May) to make it easier to reach the needy recipients in time.
You won’t be able to pay at the Mosque because of the closure, so make sure you fulfil your obligation for Zakat al Fitr before the end of Ramadan. This can be paid directly into the Shahporan Masjid bank account details are as follows;
