Penumbral Lunar Eclipse: 5 June 2020

In: Uncategorized

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth. For this to happen the Sun, Earth, and Moon must be closely aligned with the Moon and the Moon located furthest from the Sun. There are a few different types of Lunar Eclipse that are determined by where the moon is in relationship to the shadow of the Earth.

A Penumbra Eclipse occurs when the moon only enters the Penumbra area of the Earth’s shadow. The Penumbra is a region of the shadow that is not completely obsured from the rays of the sun. This lighter shadow is a result of the relative size of the Sun to the Earth.

This type of Eclipse causes the moon to only darken slightly when viewed from earth and is one of the less dramatic Lunar eclipse.

The next Penumbral Eclipse will occur on Friday 5th June 2020.

Penumbral Eclipse begins on 5th June at 21.02 (UK Time)

Penumbral Eclipse ends at 22.04 (UK Time) 

According to the rulings of Ayatullah Sistani (May Almighty Grant him a long life) Namaz e Ayat is not wajib during a penumbral lunar eclipse.

Shahr Ramadhan 1441 Creative Competition SUMMARY AND FEEDBACK

In: Uncategorized

This Shahr Ramadhan, the Hujjat Education team organised weekly creative competitions, based on the theme of that week. Alhamdulillah the response we had to this initiative was heart-warming, with so many people from a variety of different age groups submitting beautifully crafted drawings and paintings, thought-provoking and lyrical poems, video presentations, models, and more! Congratulations to all those who took part, but in particular to our winners:

Week 1 – Habeeb and Yusuf Tharoo with their model depicting the theme of Ummah and Unity

Week 2 – Maimuna Fazal with her poem ‘Oh Fast’ on the theme of Connecting to Allah through bettering our Siyam

Week 3 – Muhammad Mahdi Hasan for his poem ‘Living with the Qur’an’ on the theme of Connecting to Allah through the Holy Qur’an

Thank you to all those of you who called us, and sent us messages, to tell us how much you all enjoyed our weekly themes and live sessions, as well as taking part in these competitions – and how much you all benefitted! Here is a summary of the feedback we have received:

There were lots of competitions to choose from this Mahe Ramadhan but I felt the simplicity and expanse of your competitions, and your enthusiasm in showing them on the live sessions, really encouraged us. Thank you. Fatima

Thank you Hujjat for having such wonderful competition every week. Each week we were able to learn more and more about our religion in a way that our whole family enjoyed. It allowed us to expand our knowledge by opening the Holy Quran and we got to live the Quran in the holy month of Ramadan. We hope that we can continue the journey of increasing our knowledge outside the holy month. Looking forward for more fun competitions in the future. Thank you to the Hujjat team for making our Ramadan quarantine special. Shirin

The competition was an opportunity to express the need of a community to come together during a difficult period to express their love for a Deen that always is a source of guidance. Just want to express deepest gratitude for all who have worked so hard to make everything possible and pray for the Taqwa of all of manifest itself throughout one’s lifetime and beyond. Maimuna

We as a family really learnt a lot from the sessions – we as a family got to work and build our Islamic Knowledge by opening up the Quran more then we usually do and learn more about Allah’s mercy and love – and find amazing verses that can help us daily in our lives. My daughter learnt a lot about the nights of Laylatul Qadr, older children learnt how Allah speaks to and guides us through the Quran. Alhumdullah, this Ramadhan we felt we really got to reflect on the Quran and Inshallah we will all try our best to live by the Quran. Sukaina

Please do take some time to appreciate the hard work and thought that went into each carefully crafted entry!
