Ramadan Arrangements 2022 – Bashir Ahmed Masjid
Following the Covid-19 disruption over the past two years, normal service will resume this Ramadan Alhamdullilah.Start of Ramadan
The start of Ramadan will be determined by the sighting of the moon in our locality. A nationwide Hilal network will look for the moon from Maghrib on Friday, 1st April 2022, as well as monitor regional sighting reports.
If the moon is sighted, then the first day of Ramadan will be on Saturday, 2nd April 2022 and Tarawih prayers will commence after Isha on Friday, 1st April 2022 Insha’Allah.
If, however, the moon is not sighted in our region, the month of Shaʿbān will complete 30 days and the first day of Ramadan will be on Sunday, 3rd April 2022, with Tarawih prayers commencing after Isha on Saturday, 2nd April 2022 Insha’Allah.Tarawih Prayers
Each night we will be performing 20 rakaʿahs (units of prayer) and reciting the full Qur’an Insha’Allah.
Brothers will be in the main prayer hall upstairs and sisters will be in the hall next door.
Tarawih Parking – Waitrose, Portswood Road
We’re pleased to say we have negotiated the use of the of Waitrose car park from 9pm each day during the month of Ramadan.
If you are driving to the Masjid for Tarawih prayers, please do not park in nearby residential spaces – instead use the Waitrose car park, which is just a short 1-minute walk from the Masjid.Iftar (Opening of the Fast)
Iftar will be provided each day in the hall next door Insha’Allah. Upon opening the fast with dates and water, we will head into the main prayer hall for Maghrib and after prayer return to the hall next door for the main meal Insha’Allah.Iʿtikāf
Iʿtikāf will be back to full capacity this year Alhamdullilah. If you are interested in sitting Iʿtikāf, please speak to one of the Imams or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Covid-19
