Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh dear brothers and sisters,
The moon has been sighted; therefore, Taraweeh will begin tonight (Friday May 26th, 2017) at ICPB after Ishaa salaah and Ramadan fasting begins Saturday May 27th, 2017.
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)
We ask Allaah to accept our fasting and prayers. Please note the following important community announcements:
Iftaar will be provided at ICPB every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. For any questions about sponsoring an Iftaar, please contact ICPB at (561) 623-7647 .
ICPB will also host a five-day Ramadan seminar, “Benefiting from the Month of Ramadan” from June 1st – 5th. Guest speaker Abu Muhammad al-Maghribi (Masjid Tawheed, Stone Mountain, Georgia) will attend this seminar on June 3rd and June 4th inshaa-Allaah.
We welcome you all to what we hope will be a very beneficial Ramadan for all of us.
