    Bangladesh Flood Appeal

    Exeter will be collecting donations for the families of Bangladesh who have been affected by the floods.

    The lead up to Eid-Al-Adha 2022 has been catastrophic for the civilians in Sylhet, Bangladesh. The city has seen itself hit with one of the biggest floods in history. People have seen their homes go underwater; which also meant that their furniture, clothes and every single necessity completely perish. The flooding has made people more prone to waterborne diseases, which can be fatal if left untreated. Civilians are also found to be in danger as many predators e.g. snakes have swam into their homes and villages with the floods.

    With majority of the city flooded, people are finding it almost impossible to access shops, hospitals and even schools. A lot of people have had no choice but to let dead bodies float away with the flood. Being a majority muslim country, this has meant people have not been able to give their loved ones an Islamic burial.

    With Eid-Al-Adha around the corner, Exeter mosque wants to help our Muslim brothers and sisters in Bangladesh by collecting donations to be sent to them. This will provide civilians with money to help re-build their lives. Any donation is welcome and May our efforts be rewarded.

    High Sheriff and Healthwatch England Visit Exeter Mosque

    We had the pleasure of welcoming the high sheriff of Exeter and the Healthwatch England Committee at Exeter mosque.

    The High sheriff came to celebrate her Majesty the Queen’s platinum jubilee. It was a pleasure to celebrate such a monumental occasion with the High sheriff.

    Exeter mosque hosted the Healthwatch England Committee last week. We were able to showcase the work that we are doing to support people and patients across Devon by supplying a COVID vaccination centre within the mosque. Dr Sarah Wollaston commented that she “too learnt a lot on the visits” and that our “passion for providing the best care to patients is evident.” Sir Robert Francis added that Exeter mosque’s contribution to the work in Devon is ‘exemplar.’

    Eid Al Fitr 1443

    The moon has not been sighted over in Saudi Arabia therefore Eid Al Fitr will be celebrated on Monday 2nd May 2022.

    May Allah accept all your prayers, supplications and fasts in this great month of Ramadan. It has been a time for reflection for us as individuals, coming together as a community and remembering and supporting Muslims around the world.

    We pray that you have been able to maximise your good deeds in these last 30 days and can use these experiences to continue in the worship of Allah in the year ahead.

    It has been a relief that there has been a full resumption of all activities at the masjid, which was not possible last year due to the pandemic. As a result, the masjid community has been able to partake in Taraweeh prayers for brothers and sisters, regular Islamic lessons and Quran memorisation for children, daily iftar and weekly community iftar gatherings and Quranic competition for our students. It was lovely to see our Hifdh students leading the last Taraweeh prayers!

    These activities would not be possible without all of you. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our management, staff and volunteers who have given up their free time to serve the community. This has included the work of Imams who led Taraweeh, our teachers, chefs and helpers who prepared iftar food and cleaners who kept the House of Allah tidy all month. May Allah reward you with Goodness for looking after His servants during the holy month.

    We wish you all a fantastic day with friends and families.

    Ramadan 1443

    Ramadan Mubarak to all our community! We pray to Allah that he accepts our fasts and allows us to make the most of this month.

    In this blessed month we should try to make the most of our time as it only comes round once a year, whether it is learning a new hadith or help setting up iftar there is barakah in our intentions and the good deeds are multiplied this month. Use this time wisely and control the Nafs as the shayateen are chained up.

    There will be Taraweeh salah starting 01.04.2022 after every Isha salah
