Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh dear brothers and sisters,
The moon has not been sighted; therefore, the month of Sha’baan will be completed as 30 days and Taraweeh will begin tomorrow night, Wednesday May 16th, 2018 at Masjid Tawheed promptly after Ishaa salaah and Ramadan fasting begins Thursday May 17th.
Iftaar will be provided at Masjid Tawheed every night inshaa-Allaah.
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 welcome you all to what we hope will be a very beneficial Ramadan for all of us.
