No Halal KFC Lunch Today
Friday, November 23
Typically, SBIA offers a free Fried Chicken lunch after Jummah Prayer at either Napredak Hall or the Evergreen Masjid
This year, however, in light of the situation in Palestine as well as the fasts of Muharram, SBIA has decided to forego the lunch and instead send funds ($1000) to our beleaguered Brothers and Sisters in Gaza.
We also encourage brothers and sisters to fast on Friday and Saturday, as it is reported that the Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) recommended the Muslims to fast on `Ashura' (Sat. 24th Nov.) and in addition one more Saum on 9th(Fri. 23rd Nov.) or 11th(Sun 25th Nov.) of Muharram (Musnad Ahmad).
The Prophet (saws) also mentioned that there are the three people whose dua is not rejected .. one on them is the fasting person until he breaks the fast, – so especially remember our brothers and sisters in Gaza when breaking your fasts of ashura and the adjacent day.
