Ramadan 2016

Assalaamualaikum!

Mufti Kamani will be joining us in less than two weeks on Friday, June 3rd, as we prep for Ramadan!

  • Jumuah Khutbah (1:05pm) at Nueces Mosque
  • Friday Night Lecture at Nueces Mosque after Maghrib (8:30pm)

Come out, bring your friends and family, and get ready for Ramadan because it’s less than a month away!

Ramadan Iftaar and Suhoor Sponsorships

   The Prophet (ﷺ) was asked which was the best type of charity. He (ﷺ) replied, “The charity of Ramadan (or given during Ramadan).” [Tirmidhi]

   The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever gives someone something to break the fast with, he would have the same blessings as the fasting person and this would not reduce the blessings of the fasting person in any way.” [Ahmad and Tirmidhi]

This year during Ramadan, Nueces Mosque will be providing Iftaar every night after Maghrib along with Iftaar and Suhoor during the last ten nights for the students and downtown Austin community who live away from their families. Last year, the Iftaars were a huge success with many brothers and sisters attending each night.

To accommodate the increasing cost of food and growing number of attendees, each night’s Iftaar will cost approximately $1000, which covers food and drink for about 200 people.

While Nueces Mosque will accept and be grateful for any amount of donation, the real reward in donating for the sake of Allah SWT lies with Him and is immeasurable.

Please contact Ovais Panjwani to RSVP for which Iftaar you would like to sponsor. You can contact him at nuecesmosque.ramadan@gmail.com or at 713-240-2478.

JazaakumAllahu khairan!

Event: Reconstruction Community Collaboration

Reconstruction_Community_Collab

Dear Community Members: Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Established in 1977, Nueces Masjid holds a unique position as being the first ever established Masjid in Austin, consistently serving the community’s spiritual needs for well over three decades, Alhamdulillah. Led by our esteemed scholar Mufti Umer Esmail, the Masjid currently serves an ever expanding population of Muslim students at the nearby UT Austin as well as the professionals working in and around downtown Austin.

However, the facilities are over 100 years old and are unable to meet the requirements of a growing Austin population. The Board of Trustees of ICGA has launched an ambitious initiative to reconstruct the Nueces Masjid. Our vision is to create a first of its kind Muslim community center and campus living environment that aims to serve as a destination for worship, spiritual development, learning & awareness, Dawah & outreach and act as an endowment for the Austin Muslims, In-Shaa Allah.

We would like to invite all community members, regardless of where you live or what Islamic Center you attend, to be a part of this effort and help in achieving this objective. We are reaching out to you to help us with your Duas, skills and expertise. We plan to host a series of community updates and planning workshops through the months of November and December In-Shaa-Allah, and request you to join us at these events.

What:              Nueces Reconstruction – Community Update

When:             4pm, Sunday, November 22, 2015

Where:            Nueces Masjid, 1906 Nueces Street

We look forward to your participation.

Jazakum Allahu Khairun,

Mufti Umer Esmail, Resident Scholar, Nueces Masjid
