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]
10 Reasons Why We Should Take the First 10 Days of Dhul Hijjah Seriously
Eid ul-Fitr will be on Wednesday, July 6th, 2016. Come join us at the Islamic Center of Saint Joseph for prayers and festivities that include snacks.
There will be one prayer service. Takbeer starts at 8:30 a.m. and the Eid ul-Fitra prayer salat is at 9:00 a.m.
Fitra: If you haven’t’ done so, please remember to pay the Fitra before the prayer starts. The Fitra is $10 per family member. There is a Fitra box at the masjid. Please also remember to be silent and listen to the Imam’s Khutba after the prayer.
Thank you for spending this Ramadan with us during Friday and daily prayers, Taraweeh, Qiyaam, and Community Iftars. May Allah accept your duaas, salah, siyam, qiyaam, zakah, sadaqat and all good deeds. May Allah make your effort a source of ease, comfort, protection and forgiveness for you, your family, your community and Muslims worldwide. Ameen.
We are fasting, but that does not stop us from feeding others. Photos from this past Friday's Feed the Hungry effort, a monthly project by our mosque to give a nourishing meal to food-insecure individuals in St. Joe. In 2016, we have been feeding on the first Friday each month.
The Khutbah (sermon) begins at 1 p.m. The Iqama (Jumu'ah prayer) is at 1:30 p.m.
