  Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. (2:185)

And hold fast, all of you

together, to the Rope of Allah

(which is Islam) and be not

divided among yourselves.”

(Qur’an, Surah al-’Imran, Ayah 103)


Eid-ul-Fitr on Monday, July 28th


Eid-ul-Fitr will Inshallah be on Monday, July 28th. ICM has made Eid prayer arrangements at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. Click here for the event flier.


On Eid day, there will be two prayer sessions in order to accommodate the expected turn out. Details are included below:


  1. First Prayer Session
    • Takbeerat begin @ 7:00AM
    • Salat @ 7:30AM
    • Khatib: Br.Fathi Kamsheh


  1. Second Prayer Session
    • Takbeerat begin @ 9:00AM
    • Salat @ 9:30AM
    • Khatib: Br. Youssef Soussi


Directions to the prayer location can be found here (click on ‘DIRECTIONS’ on the middle-left side of the web page). Please make note of road construction around the Earle Brown Center and allow extra time for rush hour traffic.


Zakat-ul-Fitr this year is $10.00 per person in your household. Please do not wait until Eid day to pay your Zakat-ul-Fitr because it makes disbursement difficult. Instead, pay it within this week so that ICM can get the money out to the needy in time for them to enjoy Eid as well.


Following the second prayer session at the Earle Brown Center, you are invited to a community breakfast at the ICM. The event is free and open to the community. Details are included in the event flier.


Eid Mubarak!
