The sole purpose of man is to remember and glorify His Lord, and verily, only in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find peace and rest.

وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا لَّعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

“Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful”  (8:45) 

The Ashton Central Mosque holds a weekly Dhikr session every Thursday after Maghrib/Isha in the prayer hall to engage in deep contemplation and reflection of the beautiful names of Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla. 

وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّـهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّـهُ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا

“Those men and women who engage much in Allah’s praise. for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a Great Reward”  (33: 35)

The circle begins with the recitation of the glorious Qur’an, followed by Nashids in praise of the Prophet Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama, then a Qur’an Tafseer session, and then culminates with the Dhikr of of Allah’s Beautiful Names. 

Please join us in remembering our Lord in hope that His Mercy and tranquility descends upon us and the entire community of Ashton under Lyne.

“‏ لاَ يَقْعُدُ قَوْمٌ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلاَّ حَفَّتْهُمُ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ وَغَشِيَتْهُمُ الرَّحْمَةُ وَنَزَلَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّكِينَةُ وَذَكَرَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِيمَنْ عِنْدَهُ ‏”

“When any group of men remember Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquility descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him.” (Sahih Muslim)
