مثل الذين ينفقون أموالهم فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ حَبَّةٍ أَنْبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنْبُلَةٍ مِائَةُ حَبَّةٍ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يُضَاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ

QURAN SURAH AL BAQARAH 261

(2:261) The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.

Sincerely,
Houghton Muslim Jamaat Trust

Sadaqatul Fitr

Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakil

Benefit of reciting: Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakil.
حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل

‘Allah is Sufficient for us, and He is the best Disposer of affairs for us. What an excellent Guardian and Protector He is!’

Ibn ‘Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When Sayyiduna Ibraheem alayhissalam was thrown into the fire, he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did the Messenger of Allah,Sayyiduna Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wassalam ), when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them”. But this (warning) only increased him and the Muslims in faith and they said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)”. [Al-Bukhari].

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wassalam) said, “How can I feel at ease when the Angel of the Trumpet, (Israfil alayhissalam) has put his lips to the Trumpet and is waiting for the order to blow it”? He (the Prophet) sallallahu alayhi wasallam perceived the shock of his Companions, so he told them to seek comfort through reciting: ‘Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal-Wakeel [Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs.

Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallma taught us that a single verse Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel can be a source of all strength and comfort!

Therefore we encourage the brothers and sister of our community to set aside specific times with our families to recite this supplication.
So let us make it a point to recite this at least 100 times in the morning and evening daily.

May Allah Ta’ala accept

Houghton Masjid (West Street) regrets to inform our musallees that the Masjid will be closed to the public

In-light of the call from the Jamiatul Ulema South Africa, the trustees and Imaams of the Houghton Masjid (West Street) regrets to inform our musallees that the Masjid will be closed to the public, effective immediately, until further notice. 

Azaan will continue to be sounded as normal and the Salah will continued to be informed in the masjid by the Imaam and Muezzins only. 

We implore our Musallees to implement social distancing and avoid unnecessary travel and visit to shopping centers, gyms etc.

Please have a punctual routine for Salaah within your homes and continue with abundance of Istikhfaar and Dua. 

Programmes will continue via Online steaming and Radio Bilaal (Channel 9). Further details will follow. 

May Allah Ta’aala make it easy for us and release us quickly from the clutches of this virus. 

Shukran.

As salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullah 

Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran:

ما اصاب من مصيبة الا بأذن الله – ومن يؤمن بالله يهد قلبه – والله بكل شيءٍ عليم ٠

‘No misfortune afflicts you except with the will of Allah…. And whoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart and Allah has knowledge of all things.’

The masjid is the spiritual heart and focal point of our community. Unfortunately, due to precautions against the Corona virus, we are unable to benefit as a community from this boon and Favour of Allah Ta’ala,  albeit temporarily in sha Allah.

We implore all our community members to turn to Allah Ta’ala in repentance and abundant dua for Him to grant us safety from the present pandemic and also all types of physical and spiritual diseases.

For this reason the Masjid Imams will be conducting short programs of advices and collective dua with the intention of keeping our children and ourselves spiritually attached to the masjid and also to beseech Allah’s help during these trying times.

The programs will commence half hour before esha on Mondays , Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Thursday’s zikr will take place after esha Salah.  

We request families to note these times and via the Masjid receiver, benefit from these programs.

Respected Congregants : COVID-19 Guidelines

As Salāmu Alaikum,
Respected Congregants
COVID-19 Guidelines
In the consideration of public welfare in light of the spread of COVID-19 and the need for all segments of the country to cooperate to combat this disease and halt its dissemination, we would like our local community to:
  1. strictly adhere to all public health directives and regulations provided by the dedicated state agencies
  2. take all necessary measures to prevent the transmission and spread of the illness.
  3. It is necessary according to Sharī’ah to adhere to such directives and measures under any circumstances
  4. It is forbidden by Sharī’ah for anyone infected with this illness to enter public places or go to the mosque for all congregational prayers, including Friday prayers and the Eid prayers.
  5. It is an obligation for such a person to take all necessary precautions as outlined by medical authorities, such as observing quarantine and adhering to any prescribed treatment. This is so that one does not transmit the illness to others.
  6. It is also a request to those displaying apparent symptoms such as dry coughs etc to be cognizant of this as not to inconvenience or cause panic to other congregants.
  7. It is also requested that we resort to the verbal Islamic greeting and Salām rather than shaking hands and not to take offense if a person does not extend his hand for greeting.
If you have a recent travel history or having come into contact with any sick persons that may be infected with Covid-19 or have any symptoms to suggest any respiratory infections, please call the national Covid-19 hotline on 0800 029 999, consider a self quarantine till medically cleared and refrain from joining congregational prayers in the Masjid.
Congregants are advised to make wudhu at home and bring their own prayer mats. These directives have sound religious and historic basis which can be referenced with our local ‘Ulamā.
Our Masjid will provide hand sanitizers at the entrances. Please make use of these.
