First Ten Days of Ramadan: Mercy

nature-02.jpg

Ramadan is broken up into three parts (or Ashras):  the first ten days are for Allah's mercy, the second ten days are for Allah's forgiveness, and the last ten days are for protection from the hell fire.

During the first ten days we should make dua and pray for Allah's mercy on ourselves, our families, friends and communities.  An example of a dua we can recite:

Rab-bigh-fir war-ham wa Anta Khair-ur-Raahimeen. (Surah Al Muminun:118)

Meaning: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Best of those who show mercy!

Let us all continue to make the best out of this Ramadan, Inshallah.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Dear Believers,

Ramadan is upon us and we hope that everyone enjoys and gains many blessings during this blessed month.  Below, please find all of the information concerning the masjid prayer and iftar schedules, Taraweeh prayers, and more.

  • We encourage all believers to frequent the Masjid to break fast each evening at Maghrib time
     
  • Community iftars will be offered Fridays and Saturdays starting May 18th.  Please email masjidnumansite@gmail.com or sign-up at the Masjid.
     
  • Due to the lengthy fasting hours and work schedules the traditional Taraweeh prayers will be offered on weekends. Taraweeh prayers are recommended in congregation and can be also offered at home if not able to make it to Masjid. Remember the Prophet did not make Taraweeh a Fard (obligatory) prayer. Taraweeh prayers can help atone from earlier sins.
     
  • In general, we should all increase our prayers and reading of the Qu'ran during this month.
     
  • We also encourage believers to make donations of water, dates and food supplies that can also be used to feed needy at Eid al Fitr

Second Ten Days of Ramadan: Forgiveness

ASA believers,

We have been blessed to make it to the second ten days of Ramadan, which represent forgiveness Allah (swt).  During this time, we should make dua and continuously ask for forgiveness for our missteps.

We should not allow our excitement, energy and passion for this great ti drop during these middle ten days.  

Here is a dua to help along the way:

Rabbana Fagh-fir-lana dhunoobana wa kaf-fir-‘anna sayyi-aatina wa ta-waf-fana ma-‘al abraar.

Meaning: Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die in the state of righteousness along with Al-Abrâr (those who are obedient to Allâh and follow strictly His Orders).
— Surah Al-Imran:193
