Ramadhan 2015 at ICBC

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh!

Allah (swt) has given us yet another opportunity to welcome the blessed month of Ramadhan in our lives, Alhamdu lillah! This will be the 8th Ramadhan at ICBC. Below is a list of programs and activities planned at ICBC during the blessed month, Insha Allah.

 

2_183O You who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for You as it was prescribed for those before you, that You may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2). (Qur’an 2:183)

 

Abu Huraira related that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Whoever fasts during Ramadhan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. Whoever prays during the nights in Ramadhan with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven. And he who passes Lailat al-Qadr in prayer with faith and seeking his reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven (Bukhari, Muslim).

I’TEKAF:

Every year, few brothers have observed I’tekaf at ICBC during the last 10 days of Ramadhan. We encourage community members to plan to participate in this Ibaadah.

IFTAR/DINNERS:

We will have community Iftar/dinners sponsored by generous community members as follows:

  • Every Saturday and Sunday
  • Friday, July 3rd
  • 27th of Ramadhan

Those interested in sponsoring Iftar at ICBC may sign their names at the Iftar Sign-Up Sheet posted at the ICBC Bulletin Board.

SAHOOR MEALS:

During the last 10 nights, Sahoor meals will be provided at ICBC, at the end of Qiyaam al-Layl prayers. Those interested in sponsoring Sahoor meals at ICBC may sign their names at the Sahoor Meal Sign-Up Sheet posted at the ICBC Bulletin Board.

YOUTH ACTIVITIES:

Hafiz Faizullah and Hafiz Huzayfah will offer programs for our youth during Ramadhan, Insha Allah. Additional details will be provided soon.

FACILITIES MAINTENANCE:

We have completed renovation of the masjid, Alhamdu lillah. This project was completed in about 6 weeks and involves the following:

  • Expansion of the main prayer hall for Men;
  • Renovation of the bathrooms for Men and Women;
  • Addition of new toilet facilities at the Men’s side;
  • Installation of new carpets at the prayer hall as well as the deck area;

The expansion has increased the capacity inside the Men’s prayer hall by approx. 50%. We estimate that approx. 150 people can pray inside the Men’s area now. This will meet our short-term needs as we wait a couple of years until the new masjid is built, Insha’Allah.

PARKING ARRANGEMENTS:

The parking lot construction is progressing quite well. However, the unprecedented rainfall has caused a delay in construction work, specifically, the detention pond. Nevertheless, we have enough leveled space in our future parking lot that can accommodate ~150 vehicles. As we build the new parking lot, we request your cooperation and continued patience during this time.

ICBC CONSTRUCTION UPDATE AND FUNDRAISING:

As in prior years, we will hold fundraisers during Ramadhan to raise funds for masjid operations and to execute the Master Plan; as always, we continue to count on your support of our masjid.

NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS:

We need volunteers to assist with various activities during Ramadhan, especially on Fridays and weekends. If you are interested in volunteering at ICBC, please call (512) 850-4786 or email us at info@icbrushycreek.org

It is only by the Grace of Allah (swt) and the overwhelming support of the community that we have been able to continue the various programs and activities at ICBC. The services being offered could not have been possible without your dua’a, financial support, and feedback. We humbly request your continued support during this blessed month. May Allah (swt) accept our Ibaadah and grant us His Paradise, Aameen!

 

Jazakum Allahu Khairan
