The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
"The sun and the moon are two signs from the signs of Allah. They do not eclipse for the death or life of anyone. If you see them, invoke Allah and pray until it is over."
Tonight (Wednesday 26 May) we will witness a total lunar eclipse, if Allah wills, shortly after Ishaa.
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) would offer a special prayer - the Kusoof Prayer - on the occasion of an eclipse, and he commanded his Ummah to do the same.
We will be offering the Kusoof Prayer tonight at Gungahlin Masjid at 8:00pm if Allah wills. The prayer will last for approx. 30 minutes.
The Kusoof Prayer has a specific format which will be explained beforehand.
