Our Ramadan timetable (download here) gives the first day of fasting as Saturday 2 April 2022. But as the beginning of Ramadan depends on the sighting of the new moon, it could be a day later.

In the evening of Friday 1 April, if we receive confirmation that Ramadan has started, Tarawih prayers will begin that evening, with fasting the next day. If not, then it will start a day later.

Either way, we will post an announcement on our website and social media on that Friday evening, insha’Allah, once we have received confirmation.

Iftar @ELM

Alhamdulillah, we #CountOurBlessings that Covid restrictions have ended. This means we can return to hosting Iftar here in Ramadan, insha’Allah, where we normally have over 500 people every day.

If you’re in London, why not join the thousands who tune in every evening to break their fast by listening live to our Adhan for Maghrib? Bookmark our live audio page so you can listen on you phone or PC; or, if you have Alexa, click here!

Insha’Allah, we will also continue to provide Iftar to the needy, both locally and overseas.

You too can share in the great reward for feeding those who have been fasting, simply click this link:

Tarawih & Tahajjud @ELM

This year, insha’Allah, we will be able to pray ‘Isha, Tarawih and Witr at the East London Mosque without any restrictions.

We have not hosted Tahajjud for many years, as the nights were very short in the summer months, then the last two years were affected by Covid. We will announce on our website and social media if we are able to host Tahajjud prayers this year in the last part of the night during the last 10 nights of Ramadan.

Itikaf @ELM

Applications for Itikaf will open online from 21 March to 4 April 2022. As we always receive many, many more applications than the places available, a public draw will be conducted after Tarawih on Friday 8 April 2022, insha’Allah.

Zakat al-Fitr and Zakah

You will be able to give your Zakat al-Fitr online from the beginning of Ramadan – please do this as early as possible, so it can reach the needy in time for Eid. Our target is to collect by 20th Ramadan, so we can send it through our charity partners, insha’Allah.

Many people choose Ramadan to give their Zakah. You can do this at any time online here using our website.

May Allah bless us all this Ramadan!
