With Ramadan approaching, attendance of the Jummah will
increase and in order to meet the spiritual needs of the
ummah in an effective and practical manner at work and
wider society, this unique course has been organised.

The Jummah is the Friday congregational prayer that Muslims
hold every Friday, just after noon in lieu of dhuhr.

"O believers, when the call is given for the Friday prayer,
hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave your trading,
this is best for you, if you but know it." (Al-Quran, 62:9)

There are several Hadeeth that emphasize the excellence of Yamul Jum'ah,
Friday, among them Hadeeth in which the Prophet said:

"Friday is the master of the days and it is biggest in the sight of Allah,
it is bigger in the sight of Allah than 'Eidul Fitr and 'Eidul Adhaa..." (Ahmad)

Alhumdulilah, an increasing number of firms are allowing provisions for Jummah
at work through various company based Islamic Societies. However, many times the
quality of the sermons and etiquettes of the Khatib are lacking and to
address this, a short course has been organised and will cover the following:

- The Fiqh of Jummah including the sermon and prayer
- Understanding the audience and their needs
- Advice on topics and examples of ready made templates to use.
- Q & A session
- And more.

Inshallah we hope to produce "A Guide Jummah Toolkit" which would
include the Fiqh and etiquettes, ready made topics and a speakers list.

All welcome including university ISOCs members.
Limited spaces only and via bookings.
