The blessed days of Dhul Hijjah are coming to an end.
These days are the most blessed days of the year. Many
Muslims from all over the world are performing the blessed
pilgrimage, Hajj. Please make dua for their acceptance and
also for their safe journey. Since Friday is the day of
Arafah, we are recommended to fast.
Abu Hafsah, may
Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Prophet, upon
whom be peace, said: "Fasting on the Day of 'Arafah
absolves the sins for two years: the previous year and the
coming year, and fasting on 'Ashura, (the tenth day of
Muharram) atones for the sins of previous years."
In another saying the Prophet's wife Hafsah, may Allah
be pleased with her, said:
"Four things the
Messenger of Allâh never neglected: Observing fast on the
day of 'Ashura, 'Arafat, three days every month, and
offering fajr sunnah prayers early in the morning."
Eid-ul-Adha will be celebrated on Saturday, October 4, 2014. Salah of Eid will start at 8:30am sharp. Please come early so you can secure a good parking spot. Parking will be available on Masjid property along with the Winndixie parking lot. There will be a shuttle service that will transport all brothers and sisters who park at the Winndixie parking lot.
