It is expected that Australia will experience lunar eclipse tonight. It is expected that it will start around 4:20am and continue till after Fajar.
It is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet to pray Salat Ul Kusuf during eclipse.
There was a miscommunication during khutba that we will pray the eclipse prayer at 9:30pm. As the eclipse will start around 4:20am Sheikh AbdulRahman reannounced at Asar prayer that we will pray the eclipse prayer at 4:45am inshAllah and finish 20 minutes before Fajar 5:27am.
Please make an effort to revive the Sunnah and join us.

“Verily, getting up at night is the most potent means of subduing the self and most effective in respect of words of prayer”
And during a part of the night, keep awake by the prayer. It is beyond what is incumbent on you; maybe your Lord will raise you to a position of great glory.
— Al-Isra 17:79
And they who pass the night prostrating themselves before their Lord and standing.
— Al-Furqan 25:64
It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that our beloved brother Ali Banat passed away yesterday. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
He proved to this world how something like cancer can be taken as a gift from Allah SWT. Doctors gave him 7 months to live, Allah SWT gave him 3 years. During these 3 years he left the ease of this life and started beautiful projects like MATW Project.
May Allah SWT increase his ranks in Jannah.
His Janaza Prayer will be held at Lakemba Mosque today after Dhuhr prayer. Those who can attend please wear white as it was one of his wishes.
May Allah SWT give him a high rank and give sabr to his family.
