On Thursday, November 17, 2016, representatives from Hayward’s five mosques met with Hayward Mayor Barbara Halliday and David Korth, Assistant to Hayward City Manager Kelly McAdoo. The meeting was an important step to cement a positive working relationship between city and religious leaders, inform city officials about the services provided by the five mosques, and to assuage post-election jitters.

With the change in Daylight Savings Times tomorrow, we now begin the November-March schedule for Friday Prayers.

 

The Jum’ah Khutbu (Islamic sermon) will now begin at 12:20 p.m. and the congregational prayers at 12:50 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, a sermon in Arabic (Khutbah), and ending in two cycles (rakahs) of obligatory (Fard) prayer in congregation.

 

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

According to the Fiqh Council of North America, the first of Dhul Hijjah will be on Saturday, September 3rd, Eid-al-Adhaand Eid ul Adha will be on Monday, September 12, insha’Allah. Eid Mubarak!

 

There will be two Eid prayers at Masjid Abu Bakr Al-Sideeq on Monday, Sept. 12. 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 (the main day of Hajj) which is on Sunday, Sept. 11.

 

It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on the Day of ‘Arafah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah. He said: “It expiates the sins (minor) of the past year and the coming year.” [Muslim]

Eid-Al-Fitr-Hayward-150x150Eid ul-Fitr will be on Wednesday, July 6, 2016. Come join us at Masjid Abu Bakr Al Siddiq for prayers. There will be two separate prayers:

 

Takbeerat Begin at 8 a.m.; First Prayer: 8:30 a.m.
Takbeerat Begin at 9:30 a.m. Second prayer: 10 a.m.

 

Fitra: If you have not done so already, please remember to pay the Fitra before the prayer starts. The Fitra is $7.00 per each 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.

 

Ibn Abbas R.A reported, the Prophet PBUH made Zakat ul Fitr compulsory so that those who fasted may be purified of their idle deeds and shameful talk (committed during Ramadhan) and so that the poor may be fed. Whoever gives it before Eid Salat will have it accepted as Zakat, while he who gives it after the Salat has given Sadaqah. – Abu Dawood

Fear has become toxic. Every day the beliefs of American-Muslims are called into the question. We are so honored to be a recipient of an open letter to the Bay Area Muslim Community from our local Unitarian Universalist Church. Each mosque in Hayward received a copy of the letter of support (below) and the Imams of each masjid are pictured with the letter (read it here).

He was given the title of As-Siddiq (The Truthful). His support and love for Prophet Muhammad (S) was unmatched. He was the first Khalifa of the muslims. He’s now buried next to our Rasul (S). How did Abu Bakr (R) become one of the most beloved companions?
