A celebration of the Mawlid of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was held at the Jumua Mosque. In charge of the gathering was Shaykh Dr. Abdaqadir as-Sufi, the founder of the Jumua Mosque and the head of the Qadiri-Shadhili-Darqawi Tariqa. A discourse was given by Shaykh Habib Bewley, the Imam of the Jumua Mosque.
The Mosque has seen many Shahadas both through the organic process of the Jamaat meeting non Muslims and teaching them about the Deen through example and speech or through the many dawa events and shahada festivals we’ve held offering people a guidance and an opportunity to embrace the Deen.
Layla tul Miraj, Mawloud, ect. On these blessed days and nights which all Muslims recognise there are talks, Quran, dhikr and meals held at the Mosque.
One of the most important additional activities organised at and by the Jumu’a Mosque is the feeding of people, either at the Mosque or further afield in one of the poorer areas where so many of our great Muslim brothers live.
The Mosque Market is an initiative to create a dynamic atmosphere every Friday around the Jumu’a Mosque of Cape Town, providing space for the broader local community to gather and trade goods and food.
Dates and milk were served for Iftar every day followed by a soup after Magrib.
Tarawih was held every day, consisting of twenty rakats, throughout Ramadan after Isha. The Qur’an recitation was completed on the 27th night.
On this very special night tarawih was extended to two sets of twenty rakats. The mosque remained open for people to stay over throughout the night. Refreshments were served.
