Jakazom Allah Khair!
You can pay Zakat el Fitr here. We recommend that you pay it by the 15th of Ramadan to give us some time to distribute it before Eid Prayers. $7 per family member.
Sadaqat al-fitr is obligatory upon every Muslim who is self-supporting, if he has one “Saa’” or more than he needs of food for himself and his family on the day and night of Eid. If a person does not pay zakaat al-fitr, he is sinning, and he has to make it up.
Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined zakaat al-fitr, a saa’ of dates, or a saa’ of barley, upon all the Muslims, slave and free, male and female, young and old, and he commanded that it be paid before the people went out to pray.” Agreed upon; this version was narrated by al-Bukhaari.
And Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri narrated: “We used to pay zakaat al-fitr when the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was alive, a saa’ of food or a saa’ of dates or a saa’ of barley or a saa’ of raisins or a saa’ of dried yoghurt.” Agreed upon.
Quran classes during the week will be off during Ramadan. InshaAllah we will resume after the holy month.
Ramadan Mubarak! The moon has been sighted by Ummulqura. The first day of Ramadan will be on Monday June 6th 2016.
Taraweeh prayers will be lead by Hafith Kamran after Isha tonight. See time table below.
