Hundreds Attend Solar Eclipse Prayer

On Friday 20th March, hundreds of worshippers attended a special congregational eclipse prayer as the country was engulfed in a shadow

 Many worshippers took the rare opportunity to participate in this unique voluntary prayer which was recommended and first practised by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) after an eclipse was witnessed during his time.

The Eclipse prayer at Masjid At-Taqwa was performed in the same manner as the five daily obligatory prayers. Two units were performed during the period of the eclipse and the recitation was conducted aloud. 

The prayer served as a form of worship in submission recognising that the eclipse was a sign of Almighty God. Worshippers described the prayer as a beautiful and peaceful experience and a refreshingly different way to start the day.
