Celebrating Our Spirituality with Isra and Mi’raj 2018

In reflecting upon the miraculous journey of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) journey to Jerusalem, then to the Heavens…

We realise that in his meeting every single Prophet in Masjid al-Aqsa, and passing by Bethlehem which was the birthplace of Prophet Jesus, that his journey had a global message.

He even passed by the grave of Prophet Moses.

So we are opening up the event of Isra and Mi’raj, and its spiritual lessons, to the entire community. If you have a friend who isn’t Muslim, they are also welcome to attend.

Some delicious free food will be shared, as well as a wonderful Nasheed performance by al-Bashir Nasheed Group.

It’s going to be held at the Bill Lovelee Youth Centre in Chester Hill this Friday at 5:30pm.

The hall has limited capacity, so you MUST register by clicking HERE if you are attending.

We don’t want to just do the same ‘ole thing!

Why Can’t We All Just Unite on Eid?

Unity. We all need it. We all desire it. Without it, we have division, and in many cases, anger and conflict.

We pray in the same direction. We keep the same five obligatory prayers. We fast the same month. We all perform the same hajj. And the more we learn, the more we realise that in each of those matters we perform as a united body, there are clear variations.

There are valid scholarly differences of opinion on when the time for Asr prayer starts. There are differences of opinion of when the time for the throwing of stones at the jamarat starts each day during the days of tashreeq in Hajj. There are differences of opinion of when a person’s wudu would be invalidated during tawaf. There are even established differences of opinion on the start and end of the hijri months.
