On behalf of my family and the entire management of MALV, I wish you and your family a happy and blessed Ramadan. May Allah SWT accept all our good deeds and forgive our shortcomings during this noble month. May we be among those that will come out of this month with all our sins forgiven.
This Ramadan brings a unique experience to our community, especially being the first Ramadan with our beloved Imam Basheer. We are also blessed to have Sh. Ragab Kelawi, an acclaimed reciter of the Holy Quran with a very beautiful voice to lead our Taraweeh this year. In addition, the board has developed a comprehensive list of program throughout the month of Ramadanto make this month a unique experience for everyone.
- Make every effort to participate in all the programs organized by the center throughout the month
- Speak with your family (especially your children) about the etiquette of the masjid. We would do everything within our ability to accommodate everyone.
- Be generous – we have a goal of raising $250k this Ramadan so help us in repayment of our construction loans, mosque operations and imam expenses. We count on you to help us achieve this goal.
- If you are not yet a member of MALV, please do so and if you are a member and yet to pay your 2018 membership, we ask that you fulfil this obligation in this month.
- Join the community for iftar – our goal is to have daily iftar in the masjid throughout the month. We encourage everyone to consider organizing iftar in the masjid instead of their homes. If few families can come together to sponsor an iftar, that will be a great help
- Don’t be wasteful – this is something we all need to work on especially during iftar
- Be kind and loving to one another – let us all strive to forgive each other and work together as one brotherhood/sisterhood. With a united heart and the help of Allah, there is nothing we would not be able to achieve
- Remember our community in your dua
We welcome your suggestions, advice and recommendations on what we can do to better serve the community.
May Allah SWT reward you and accept all your efforts during this noble month.
