Alhamdulillah, we will be completing the Holy Quran under the recitation of Shaykh Issam Ahmed this coming Saturday. Here are a few key points regarding the program:
We are expecting a very large turnout. As it is the weekend, everyone is likely to come and leave around the same time. Accordingly, we ask that you please do not come solo, but rather carpool with at least one other person, if not several others.
We have made arrangements with our neighbors to use their parking lots. In addition to SBIA's lot and street parking, we can park in the Bentek, Tzu Chi, and Purity Park lots. See the map below for the locations of each of these.
The majority of SBIA's funds for its Operating budget is collected during the month of Ramadan. Our budget for 2014 is $500,000 and we are far below that figure. Therefore we ask that you donate generously for our new masjid, which has substantially increased its programs and services to serve our community
Our Agenda for the evening is as follows:
9:45 Adhan 10:00 Salat al-Isha 10:15 Speech by Imam Tahir and request for funds 11:00 Salat al-Taraweeh, followed by Du'a by Imam Tahir and Witr Refreshments
Free babysitting available throughout the evening
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday at Masjid al-Mustafa, Insha-Allah!
Khatm at Downtown Masjid Tonight!
Our Khatm at SBIA Downtown will be Tonight, Thursday, July 24th, with Salat al-Isha at 10:00PM.
Everyone is requested to come early and carpool.
Tuesday, July 29 or Monday July 28 (Subject to moonsighting) SBIA encourages everyone to go out to look for the new crescent moon (hilal) on the evening on Sunday, July 27th, 2014 in anticipation of the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal and the advent of Eid al Fitr. If the moon is sighted, Eid al Fitr will be on Monday, July 28th, 2014. If the moon is not sighted, we will complete the 30 days of Ramadan, and Eid al Fitr will be on Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.
Qualified Muslim astronomers and reliable visibility forecasts indicate that the new crescent moon may not be easily visible on Sunday, July 27th. SBIA adheres to the traditional principle that the Islamic lunar months begin and end based on the confirmed, verifiable, naked-eye sighting of the new crescent moon.
