Weekly hour of Eman

“let’s sit and strengthen our belief in Allah together” , this was the attitude of our Prophet’s ﷺ companions when they met each other. They encourage each other to gather and sit to remind one another of Allah (SWT) and renew their Eman.

Following the path of the companions , we’re so excited to announce a series of free – weekly lessons for Arabic speaking sisters every Tuesday from 11:00am-1:00pm at Greenbank Masjid.

The lessons will cover different Islamic topics in Seerah, Aqedah, Ahadeeth and tafsir.
It will be our pleasure to welcome all sisters in the lessons soon.

كان السلف يتواصون فيما بينهم، ويتناصحون بزيادة الإيمان، فيقول بعضهم لبعض: “هيا بنا نؤمن ساعة”، “تعالوا فلنذكر الله ونزدد إيمانا” ، “تعالوا نذكره بطاعته لعله يذكرنا بمغفرته”.

واتباعاً لنهج السلف الصالح، وسيراً على خطاهم ، يسعدنا دعوتكم لحضور الدرس الأسبوعي للسيدات ” تعالوا بنا نؤمن ساعة “، لنقضي بعض الوقت في ذكر الله تعالى، وتجديد الإيمان من خلال مجموعة من الدروس المتنوعة والمهمة والشيقة.
ننتظركم بكل شوق بمسجد جرين بنك، كل ثلاثاء من الساعة ١١ صباحاً وحتى الساعة ١ ظهراً.
الدعوة عامة لجميع الأخوات الناطقات باللغة العربية والدخول مجاني.

Children’s Flu Clinic

Protecting Children from Reception to Year 11: Flu and MMR Vaccinations

Saturday 14 October 2023 from 10am to 2pm

Nobody likes the discomfort of the flu—fever, stuffy nose, dry cough, sore throat, and more. But for children from Reception to Year 11, it’s more than just discomfort; it can disrupt their education and even lead to complications requiring hospitalisation. That’s why we’re offering flu vaccinations to shield our children, minimise virus circulation this winter, and support both their education and the NHS.

At the Greenbank Masjid session, we’ll provide the injectable (gelatine-free) flu vaccines.

Protecting Against MMR Diseases

On the same day, we’re also checking children’s MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccination history. While most have had 2 doses before school, we offer the gelatine-free MMR vaccine for those who missed it. These diseases can spread easily among unvaccinated individuals, leading to severe problems, including meningitis, hearing loss, and pregnancy complications. For the best protection, two doses of the MMR vaccine are essential against measles, mumps, and rubella.
