Assalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu!

From all of us here at Nueces Mosque, we want to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for supporting as we embark on this journey to re-envision Austin’s first masjid. Thank you for the endless encouragement and excitement you’ve shared with us over the course of this project. Thank you for everything you have done to support the project whether it be with your donations, ideas, or duas. We couldn’t be more grateful to have such a wonderful community backing us as we work to create and sustain a better future for the leaders of our community here in Austin, and our ummah at large.

By continuing to work together, we will insha Allah reach our goal just as you helped us reach and exceed our Ramadan fundraising goal.

Eid-Ul-Fitr is Wednesday July 6th!

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Eid-ul-Fitr: Wednesday, July 6, 2016

There have been no verified reports of moon sighting anywhere in the world that shared part of the night with the USA, and hence in accordance with our global moon sighting policy, we will complete the month of Ramadan. In-Shaa-Allah, Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Wednesday, July 6, 2016.

See prayer details below.

Let us turn our attention now on preparing for the arrival of this blessed month and to plan on getting maximum benefit from the days of fasting and nights of prayers. We look forward to seeing all of you at our centers for Taraweeh and Iftars.

We ask Allah SWT that you and your families have a blessed month of Ramadan.

“O Allah! Safeguard me for Ramadan, safeguard Ramadan for me, and accept it from me.” Ameen.

Ramadan 2016

إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعون

Mufti Kamani’s mother has passed away, please keep her and her family in your duas. Please note that our khutbah and “Ramadan: Are You Ready?” event with Mufti Kamani will no longer be happening this Friday.

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!
