Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh dear brothers and sisters,
The moon sighting has been confirmed; therefore, Taraweeh begins tonight, Monday April 12th, 2021 and Ramadan fasting begins Tuesday April 13th, 2021.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ICPB will not be serving iftaar meals or holding Taraweeh prayers this year during Ramadan. We encourage you all to observe the Taraweeh prayers in your homes with your family. The masjid will be open for the five daily prayers and for the Friday (Jumuah) prayers according to the rules posted at the following link:
Brief lessons, reminders, and Question & Answer sessions related to Ramadan will be broadcasted live online at 7:00PM EST throughout the month. Online classes on Tafseer (explanation of the Qur’aan) will be held on Saturdays and Sundays after Salaatul-Fajr inshaa-Allaah. Tune into these beneficial lessons via https://www.palmbeachmuslims.com/ramadan-workshop-1442-2021/.
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.
