At 3 p.m. this Saturday (Feb. 4), people concerned about the ban and the wall are coming together in solidarity at the Civic Center Park, which on the south side of the St. Joseph City Hall. We will be at the rally and speak about our masjid along with other local immigration organizations and groups affected by the recent Presidential Executive Orders.
Fear has become a toxic force in U.S. politics that has resulted in the stereotyping and marginalization of your American-Muslim neighbor. This evening, we came for congregational prayer at the mosque and we found this flower bouquet at the front door. Thank you to whoever did this neighborly act!
According to the Fiqh Council of North America, the first of Dhul Hijjah was on Saturday, September 3rd, and Eid ul Adha will be on Monday, September 12, insha'Allah. Eid Mubarak!
The Eid prayer at the Islamic Center of St. Joseph will be at 9 a.m. Takbeerat will start at 8:30 a.m.
The Eid al-Adha date is also in accordance with the Hajj authorities announcement of the Day of Arafah (the main day of Hajj) which is on Sunday, September 11.
It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on the Day of Arafah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on the day of 'Arafah. He said: "It expiates the sins (minor) of the past year and the coming year." [Muslim]
