Ramadan Activities

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, so that you may learn self-restraint, - Quran 2:183

The Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) has determined that Friday April 24, 2020 will be the first day of Ramadan 1441.

Eid ul-Fitr, the first day of Shawwal, is on Sunday, May 24, 2020

As we are about to enter the month of Ramadan during the coronavirus pandemic, masajid worldwide will not be open during this blessed month. As a community here in Gainesville, we are hoping to read the Quran in its entirety together during the month of Ramadan. A few members from our community will be leading a Quran reading every night after Ishaa’ prayer through zoom. This will not replace a person’s taraweeh prayers, and we encourage you to pray Taraweeh in your homes with your families. This is only to have a community khatm (completion) of the Qur’an. The Qur’an reading will start after Ishaa prayer on April 23rd at 9:45 PM. We will be reading one Juz’ a night for the entire month of Ramadan insha'Allah. More details to follow insha'Allah.

May Allah (SWT) accept from us during this very special month of Ramadan. The Hoda Center wishes you and your families a very blessed and rewarding month insha'Allah.
