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 12:00pm-2:00pm 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.

Lessons are delivered in English and will cover the study of the following subjects:

• Translation and Commentary of the Holy Qur’an

We understand the demands of modern life and the busy lifestyle we live so we have deliberately kept lessons short but focused and rich but not overwhelming, ensuring that only very limited study outside of lessons is required.
