Monthly Ghaatamoel Quran

Sheikh Ebrahiem Tofa is in charge of this initiative whereby mussallees are requested to recite 1 juz of the Holy Quran on a monthly basis in contribution towards the completion of the recital of the 30 Ajjaza. A list is displayed in the Masjied where participants can indicate what juz they will be reciting. The jamaa is then invited to the completion of the Ghaatamal Quran on the last Sunday of the Islamic month after Fajr when the 30th Juz is recited by our mussallees followed by a short thikr. The mussallees are encouraged to bring along some niceties and the proceedings are completed with a breakfast.
