Hajj, Arafah, Eid, and Sacrifice

AssalamuAlaikum everyone:

❇️ Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah, Sunday (July 11) we witnessed the First of ZilHijjah 🕋

❇️ These are the best days of the entire year – where Allah SWT loves to be worshipped.

❇️ Among these days, the prime day of the entire year is the 9th – Day of Arafah, which begins on sundown of Sunday and ends at sundown Monday July 19th – where most people are forgiven and decreed to be among the people of Paradise.

❇️ Fasting on coming Monday is promised by Prophet of Allah to be an expiation of past and present year’s sins (Sahih Muslim).

❇️ Eid Takbeerat begin after Fajr on 9th DhulHijjah Monday (7/19) And Last until the Asr prayer of 13th of DhulHijjah.

❇️ Anyone intending to do Udhiyya-sacrifice- should not clip their nails or trim hair till sacrifice is done ✅

❇️ The time for sacrifice is from the Day of Eid, and two more days after. For local sacrifice, we will update the information on the website soon.

If you are interested in doing a sacrifice overseas please contact me via text/call at my cell.

❇️ Eid Prayer and Khutbah – 10th of ZulHijjah, i.e. Tuesday July 20th
First prayer is at KiC (masjid) 7am Second one at the KIS – 9am
physical khutbahs for both prayers InshaAllah.

❇️ In the meantime, let us focus on our main goal of these few days

One must devote time, out of sincere love for Allah swt to do the following:

1️⃣ Improve in Daily 5 prayers with their volunteer sections (Sunan) and pray in congregation at 🕌 KIC

2️⃣ Volunteer prayers during the day (Sunnah, Nafal, Duha, Awwabeen, Tasbih) + Tahajjud

3️⃣ Zikr of morning and evening – and as much possible through out the day.

4️⃣ Fasting; especially focusing on the 9th day – Arafah

5️⃣ Special Remembrance of Allah – Takbeerat: 🕌

Starting after Fajr Prayer of 9th and lasting till the Asr on 13th of ZhulHijjah.
They are:
‎الله اكبر الله اكبر لا إله إلا الله والله اكبر الله اكبر ولله الحمد
AllahuAkbar AllahuAkbar La ilaha illAllahuWallahuAkbar AllahuAkbar wa LillahilHamd

6️⃣ Charity – Sadaqa
And taking care of one another.
