(“Revered Month of Ramadan”)
Join the Islamic Center community in celebrating one of the most spiritually uplifting times of year.
Thank you for joining us this Ramadan.
May all of our fasts and prayers be accepted.
A Glimpse of our Nightly Ramadan Program
Our Ramadan program starts with 15 minutes of recitation before maghrib (sunset) prayer by Sheikh Asim Buyuksoy or Dr. Saleh Kholaki. After prayer, the Center serves iftar (fast breaking meal) for about 700 people Friday – Sunday, providing a time to come together as a community to share God’s bounty with one another. After iftar, there is Quranic recitation of one part of the Quran (a juz, or 1/30 of the Quran), with a commentary about the day’s portion. Throughout the month-long program, there are diverse commentators, men and women alike. After isha (evening) prayer, the final part of the Ramadan program is the taraweeh (optional evening prayers) program, which includes eight rak’a (cycles of prayer), and concludes with shaf’ and witr prayers.
We hope you celebrate Eid with the Islamic Center community!
