As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,


Summer is in full swing! Hope you and your loved ones can take time to enjoy it.  Please take advantage of the many activities ISGVF is also offering that you will read about below. Yes, we are also planning our annual community potluck picnic - look out for more information soon! Of course, let’s also be thankful to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’Ala and make Dua to keep us healthy, safe and in the best state of Iman, as our Imam will remind us below.


From the Imam

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah, 


The mercy of Allah ﷻ is such that that he gives us virtuous times throughout the year, where we have opportunities for our good deeds to be multiplied and sins to be forgiven. As we now have finished the month of Ramadan and the 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, Allah ﷻ is giving us another opportunity in the upcoming month of Muharram (begins July 18th), which is the first month of the Islamic calendar. One of the best actions we can plan to do throughout this month is to fast. The Prophet ﷺ said, “The best fasting after Ramadan is the month of Allah - Muharram” (Sahih Muslim). Along with the general recommendation of fasting throughout the month, the Prophet ﷺ  highly encouraged fasting on the 10th of Muharram (July 27th), as fasting on this day forgives the sins of the whole previous year (Sahih Muslim). What an opportunity! It’s also important to note it is recommended to fast along with the 10th of Muharram, the day before it or the day after it, if we are able to (Sahih Muslim).


So, as we plan our various activities in these upcoming summer days, let’s not forget to plan to fast on the 10th of Muharram, and some more days if we can!


May Allah accept from us and forgive our sins. Ameen!


JazakomAllah-o-Khair,

Imam Aqib Choudhury
