EID Al Fitr! Insha Allah we will celeberate Eid Al Fitr on Sunday, May 24, 2020. Alhamdulillah City has allowed to hold in-cars Eid prayers services. Kindly review the directive which will be strictly followed
·As a month of giving, empathize and support the poor, giving remotely in a meaningful manner to those most in need within our communities.
·Connect even more with distant family members over virtual Iftar dinners that you've been procrastinating on contacting.
·Foster relationships with friends and kin.
·Participate with your families in virtual Halaqas.
Though we may be social distancing from each other and feeling vulnerable, Allah remains closer to us than our jugular veins.
Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
Every (good) deed of the son of Adam would be multiplied, a good deed receiving a tenfold to seven hundredfold reward.
Allah, the Exalted and Majestic, has said: With the exception of fasting, for it is done for Me and I will give a reward for it, for one abandons his desires and food for My sake.
There are two occasions of joy for one who fasts, joy when he breaks it, and joy when he meets his Lord, and the breath (of an observer of fast) is sweeter to Allah than the fragrance of musk.
In Ramadan, we continue to serve our community and the families affected by the current covid 19 crisis and others in need of financial and other resources with our community partners .
