daylight savings timeWith the change in Daylight Savings Times on March 9, we will now begin the March-November schedule for Jum’ah. The Khutbu (Islamic sermon) will now begin at 1:30 p.m. and the congregational prayers start at 1:50 p.m.


As a reminder, the Jum’ah service begins with a sermon in Farsi, then a call to prayer (Azaan), individual customary prayers (Sunnah prayers), community announcements in Farsi, a sermon in Arabic (Khutbah), and ending in two cycles (rakahs) of obligatory (Fard) prayer in congregation.


The services are officiated by by our lay speaker (Khateeb) Dr. Barakatullah Danishwar and our resident spiritual leader (Imam) Qari Abdul Basir Durani.



 إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un
Surely, we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return


We join Bay Area Muslims  in grieving for three Muslim students who were victims of a murder Tuesday in North Carolina. Deah Barakat, his wife Yusor Mohammad and her sister Razan Mohammad Abu Salha were all of Syrian descent and were role models in their community, both in terms of their education and their community service.


Please make dua for their Maghfirah and also for their families to have the strength and patience to endure this incredibly difficult time.


If you would like to support the wonderful cause for which Deah was raising funds, go to

Eid ul adhaAccording to the Fiqh Council of North America, the first of Dhul Hijjah will be on Thursday, September 25th, and Eid ul Adha will be on Saturday, October 4, insha’Allah. Eid Mubarak!


There will be two Eid prayers at Masjid Abu Bakr. The first will be at 8:30 a.m. and the second at 10 a.m.


The Eid al-Adha date is also in accordance with the Hajj authorities announcement of the Day of Arafah which is on Friday, October 3, 2014. September 25, 2014 is the 1st day of Dhul Hijjah 1435.



Today, is the third day of the month of Shawwāl (the first day of Shawwal is Eid al-Fitr).


Starting today until August 26, many Muslims will pick six days to fast. These six days of fasting together with the Ramadan fasts, are equivalent to fasting “perpetually,” according to Sahih Muslim. The reasoning behind this tradition is that a good deed in Islam is rewarded 10 times, hence fasting 30 days during Ramadan and six days during Shawwāl is equivalent to fasting the whole year in terms of reward. It is a common misconception that the six days of fasting must be undertaken on consecutive days, but there is no hadith that support or stipulate this.


Masjid Abu Bakr Al Siddiq encourages you to choose six days (on the weekends, for example) to fast before Shawwāl‘s end on Aug. 26.


Learn more about the fasting of six days of Shawwāl here.



Eid-Al-Fitr-Hayward-150x150Eid ul-Fitr will be on Monday, July 28th, 2014 insha’Allah. Come join us at Masjid Abu Bakr Al Siddiq for prayers. There will be two separate prayers:


First prayer: 8:30 a.m.
Second prayer: 10 a.m.


Fitra: If you haven’t’ done so, please remember to pay the Fitra before the prayer starts. The Fitra is $7.00 per family member. There is a Fitra box at the masjid. Please also remember to be silent and listen to the Imam’s Khutba after the prayer.



Quran Completion 2014 Khatam al Qur'anPlease join us at 10 p.m. this Friday, July 18 as we conclude the recitation of the Qur’an in Taraweeh led by Qari Abdul Basir Durani.


Alhamdulillah, this Ramadan has allowed us all to strengthen the state of our Iman and our connection to Allah (swt).


The Zakat Al-Fitr this year is $7.00 per person. Please pay your zakat al-fitr at the masjid. We encourage you to do so as soon as possible. Before the end of the month of Ramadan, every adult self-supporting Muslim who has food in excess of his or her needs must pay Zakat-ul-Fitr. He or she must pay for himself or herself and pay on behalf of his or her dependents.
