Ramadan Start Date and Program

Ramadan Start Date and Program

Assalaamu Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,

With the approach of the blessed month of Ramadan, we are reminded of the immense opportunity it presents for spiritual growth, reflection, and strengthening our bond to Allah. It is with great anticipation and humility that we prepare to welcome these sacred days in our lives.

Ramadan will begin on the evening of Sunday, March 10, or Monday, March 11 contingent upon sighting of the moon locally. We will promptly notify you of the confirmed start date via email, on our website, and through an updated voice recording on our phone line at 808-947-6263 on Sunday evening.

In alignment with our commitment to facilitating spiritual enrichment, we are pleased to announce our comprehensive nightly Ramadan program:

8:30 - Isha prayer

8:45 - Quran recitation

8:55 - Taraaweeh prayer (4 rakaat)

9:10 - Lecture

9:25 - Taraweeh prayer (4 rakaat)

9:40 - Witr prayer

9:45 - Dua

9:50 - Program end

The program is subject to change and may go on longer. If you do not plan to stay for the entire program, please park your cars outside as we will not be asking people to move their cars.

As a reminder please be mindful of our neighbors when parking in the residential area surrounding the Masjid. Please do not park illegally and do not block our neighbors' driveways.

Due to the ongoing repairs and improvements on the property, we will be unable to host communal iftaars in the Masjid this year.

Please be advised that the dates sold at Costco are a product of Israel. If you have already mistakenly purchased them, they will be accepted as a return.

As we embark on this month-long spiritual journey, let us set our intentions to increase our worship and seek closeness to Allah. May our hearts be filled with gratitude, humility, and compassion as so many of our brothers and sisters around the world will struggle to meet the basic needs that we freely enjoy.

Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed Ramadan filled with peace, blessings, and spiritual abundance.

Warm regards,

MAH Executive Committee
