Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah, InshaAllah Monday, June 19th, we will witness the First of DhulHijjah 1444 AH. Thus, we enter the best days of the entire year in which Allah SWT loves to be worshipped.
Accordingly, Eid al Adha will be on Wednesday, June 28th. Revised Prayers schedule is below:
Among these days, the prime day of the entire year is the 9th of ZulHijjah The Day of Arafah, which begins on sundown of next Monday (June 26th) and ends at sundown Tuesday (June 27th). Fasting this day is promised by the Prophet of Allah to be an expiation of past and present year’s sins (Sahih Muslim). People are forgiven and decreed to be among the people of Paradise.
