UIC invites you to the annual Iftar and Dinner to be held on June 21st at Classic Fun Center. The event is free to the whole community. UIC management will share additional details about the project. Fundraising for the project will be done as well. Please attend to meet and support the community and enjoy the blessings of Iftar together. The kids can play in the play area at a subsidized rate of $4 per child. Brother Jameel Syed of the “50 Mosques in 50 States” project is our guest and will share his thoughts about his travels. Additional information about him is available at the UIC Facebook page. You can donate for the new mosque page here as well.
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.
