Religious Rites

The Council for Religious Affairs (CFRA) of the Old Kent Road Mosque organise and conduct religious rites and ceremonies for the benefit of all mosque users. These include:

Nikkah (Wedding Ceremony) 

The marriage between a bride and groom is a legal contract, known as Nikkah. The Nikkah ceremony is one part of several steps of a marriage arrangement in Islamic tradition. 

The Old Kent Road Mosque has been approved for registry marriages for Muslim couples conducted in a manner that is compliant with the Shari’ah as well as English Law.

Aqeeqah (Naming Ceremony) 

This is part of the legacy inherited from Prophet Ibrahim (peace and blessings be upon him) and a great Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) sacrificed a goat each for his grandsons Al-Hasan (RA) and Al-Husayn (RA). It is recommended that, on the day of aqeeqah, the child is given a good name, his/her head is shaved, and his/her hair is weighed and the equivalent in money of its weight in gold is given in charity.

Janaazah (Funeral Prayer) 

The Janazah or "Islamic funeral prayer" is a part of the funeral rituals as detailed by the Shari'ah. The prayer is performed in congregation to seek pardon for the any Muslims that have passed away.
