    Up Coming Dates

    :start:
    :salams

    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.

        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

                    Thank you, I was just heading over here to copy your quote from the other thread when, Shazam, it was done for me.

                      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

                          31st August 2017 Ah yes, thanks for pointing that out.


                          *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.
