Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah and the dedication of our teachers, we are able to start the Sunday Islamic school. Currently, the focus of the Islamic school is on three areas:
- Quran Studies which include memorization, Tajweed, and tafseer.
- Islamic Studies which include the Seerah, Islamic Beliefs & Manners and Islamic history
- Arabic Language Learning
There is no fee for Sunday Islamic School and admissions are still open. You are highly encouraged to bring your kids to learn the Deen of Allah, Inshallah.
So it’s 1:06 in the afternoon, and you’re wondering if it’s time for Zuhr prayer.
For Jefferson City-area residents, assuage your wondering by visiting the mosque’s Prayer Time page. There you can see the daily prayer schedule as well as print off a prayer schedule for that month. We have prayer schedules up until December 2015.
So what are you waiting for? Visit today.
According to Kristiane Backer, an eco-Muslimah and writer, nature is God’s creation and a sacred space so respecting it is akin to charity – it is a way of remembering God. There are hundreds of verses in the Qur’an that speak about the earth, nature, and its resources which tells us that the earth is a trust and that we are its stewards which is a role that we must fulfill responsibly. We appreciate everyone’s extra effort to be practioners of green Islam.
The Prophet Muhammad was sent as a mercy to all creation, including animals and plants. He had a very close relationship with nature. He taught us to observe the elements, to marvel and draw teachings from the nature around us. And he emphasized that we must be careful in using its resources, not to waste water even if standing next to a running stream and if the last hour comes and we have a sapling in our hand that we should plant it.
