Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh dear brothers and sisters,
The moon sighting has been confirmed; therefore, Taraweeh begins tonight, Thursday April 23rd, 2020 and Ramadan fasting begins Friday April 24th, 2020.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Corona virus pandemic, ICPB continues to remain closed. We encourage you all to observe the Taraweeh prayers in your homes with your family. Brief lessons reminders, and Question & Answer sessions related to Ramadan will be broadcasted live online at 7:15PM EST before Salaatul-Maghrib throughout the month via https://www.palmbeachmuslims.com/ramadan-workshop-1441-2020/.
In an authentic hadeeth collected by Imam An-Nasaa’ee, the Messenger of Allaah, صلى الله عليه و سلم , said:
أتاكُم رَمضانُ شَهرٌ مبارَك ، فرَضَ اللَّهُ عزَّ وجَلَّ عليكُم صيامَه ، تُفَتَّحُ فيهِ أبوابُ السَّماءِ ، وتغَلَّقُ فيهِ أبوابُ الجحيمِ ، وتُغَلُّ فيهِ مَرَدَةُ الشَّياطينِ ، للَّهِ فيهِ ليلةٌ خيرٌ من ألفِ شَهرٍ ، مَن حُرِمَ خيرَها فقد حُرِمَ
“There has come to you Ramadaan, a blessed month, in which Allaah has made it obligatory to fast. During it the gates of Paradise are opened and the gates of Hellfire are closed, and the rebellious devils are chained. In it is a night (Laylatul-Qadr) which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of its good has truly been deprived.” (Reference: Saheeh An-Nasaa’ee)
May Allaah accept our fasting and prayers. We ask Allaah to make this a very beneficial Ramadan for all of us.
