    Up Coming Dates




    If there are dates coming up as each month approaches can everyone give an alert here for those who are new as we might not know about them all yet.

    Such as, if there's a special day to fast coming up or a day that requires extra prayers for extra blessings and rewards or anything really that someone in the early months of their faith wouldn't realise.

    I don't want to miss anything this year Inshallah.

    Hopefully it will be a thread that charts a whole cycle of the calendar and is very beneficial with questions, brief easy-read explanations and short anecdotes along the way.

    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

    Re: Up Coming Dates

    It is probably worth mentioning (in lieu of this thread) that every Friday is auspicious.

    "When Friday comes, the devils go to the markets with their flags, and involve people in their needs and prevent them from the Friday prayer. The angels come early in the morning, sit at the door of the mosque, and record that so-and-so came.. I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say so." ~Narrated by Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu TaalibAbu [Dawood 1046]


    "On (the day of) Jummah (Friday), is an hour during which Allah gives to a Muslim servant standing in prayer, whatever he asks for." ~MOHAMMED


    "Whoever.. comes to Jummah (Friday prayer).. will be forgiven for (his sins) between that and the next Friday, and three more days." [Muslim Hadith: 857]


    "The best day the sun rises over is Friday. On it Allah created Adam. On it, he was made to enter paradise. On it he was expelled from it. And the Last Hour will take place on no other day than Friday." ~MOHAMMED [As recited by IMAM at-Termezi, a Persian Islamic scholar, and collector of Hadith compilations in Sunni Islam, 824-892 AD]

    InshaAllah.

    Upcoming is 30th August is hajj period.
    1st September is Eid Adha.

    I think the most that needs to be reminded is the voluntary extra deeds fast like on day of Ashura.
    Because its not a public holiday and not many people fast. Not popularly known unlike other days

    Any days. Need not be consecutive.

    Fasting on mondays, thursdays and 13,14,15 of the islamic month is recommended I think.

    The Month of Shawwal ends on Monday 24th July 2017

    Re: Up Coming Dates

    Supreme court in Saudi Arabia declared that Wednesday 23/8/2017 will be the first day of Dhul- Hijjah, So Arafa day is on Thursday 31/8/2017 and Friday 1/9/2017 is the first day of Eid Ul-Adha
    In shaa Allaah. Millions of Muslims from across the globe will embark on the Hajj Pilgrimage to Makkah around the end of this month In shaa Allaah.

    May Allaah grant us all the opportunity to perform Hajj ameen!

    May Allaah accept our good deeds, forgive our transgressions, Protect our Islamic Countries and ease the suffering of all peoples around the globe!! Ameen

    Last date for cutting hair & nails is Tuesday 22nd August, for those making sacrifice (Qurbani).

    JazakAllahukhairan
    This goes here too

    *smacks forehead* Wanted to use that smacks forehead smiley for the first time but couldn't find it. Strange.
    Sigh. Must be one of those tired days. Wrongly state the dates.

    Re: Up Coming Dates

    @Rifqah and @eesa the kiwi
    and other forum members , just a reminder

    10 Muharram 1439 H falls on the 30th of September. (Recommended act of fasting on the day of Ashura)

    Rasullulah says in a hadith
    I seek from Allah that fasting on the day of Ashura may atone for the sins of the preceding year.
    https://sunnah.com/muslim/13/252

    I think akhi Hamza81 will be making a thread on it perhaps, inshaAllah.
    You can check his past excellent threads , a lot of good information.
    1st Muharram will be the start of the new calendar year.

    Oh thank you, I wasn't aware of this day at all. I'll look up brother Hamza81's thread, they are really informative.

    Is there a celebration for the beginning of a new year?

    Not really of a celebration, but more of welcoming of the new year.
    People usually say Salam maal hijrah and things like that.
    From there people usually know that its a new year. (awareness is being spread)
    There is also the practice of reciting the supplication on the first day of Muharram. And also right before the new year starts.
    Tried to find a hadith on that, but I couldn't really find it.
