We, as Muslims, must strive to pray as many of the prayers, if not ALL FIVE prayers at the Masjid, because the Prophet (s.a.w) tells us:
“If people knew the reward in praying Fajr and Isha in congregation, they would go to the mosque even if they had to crawl.” [Bukhari & Muslim]
“Prayer in congregation is superior to prayer alone by twenty seven degrees.” [Bukhari & Muslim, from Ibn Umar]
Therefore, we will InshAllah try to apply and put our religion into practice by holding the Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib, and Isha prayers regularly ON TIME at UIC. Please check the times above to make sure you come on time. The Imam will InshAllah be there to lead the prayers.
