Eid al Fitr 1441

Pending the sighting of the moon, Eid al Fitr will be streamed live at 9:30am beginning with Dua Nudba, followed by Salat al Eid. The prayer is to be prayed at home individually, with the intention of furada prayer. Brothers and sisters can follow along with Sheikh Ameeni while praying.

Zakat al Fitra will be $12 this year per person. This is an estimate based on the cost of living expenses in the greater Philadelphia area. Zakat can be paid on the day of Eid until the time of Dhuhr prayers (1pm). Brothers and sisters can pay in person at the masjid by dropping off their zakat any time from 11pm-1pm. Zakat can also be paid online, however, the amount must be paid as $13 per person in order to fulfill the costs after fees. The link for online payment is as follows: tinyurl.com/iamzakat

For those who need more information regarding Zakat al Fitra, please check out the following FAQ.

Additionally, in place of an in-person program inside the masjid, brothers and sisters are welcome to decorate their cars and visit the masjid by driving through on Eid from 11am-1pm. Goody bags will be provided for families that participate. All are required to remain in their cars at all times. Please see the flyer below for more information.

Death Announcement – Marhoom Al-Hajj Mir Ahmad Farid Talebi

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marhoom Al-Hajj Mir Ahmad Farid Talebi. The Marhoom will be laid to rest on Thursday, April 23rd, 2020.

On behalf of the Imam Ali Masjid community, we would like to convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of the Marhoom. InshaAllah, upon the clearance of the social distancing and stay at home orders, arrangements to pay respects to the bereaved family will be announced.

All are requested to remember the Marhoom with the recitation of Surah al Fatiha and Salat al Wahsha tonight.

_______________________________________________________________

Salat al Wahsha is recommended that on the first night of burial, after Isha prayer. The method of performing this prayer is as follows: In the first rakʿah after reciting Sūrat al-Ḥamd, Āyat al-Kursī  is recited once; and in the second rakʿah after reciting Sūrat al-Ḥamd, Sūrat al-Qadr is recited ten times; and after the salām of the prayer, the following is said:

___اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَ ابْعَثْ ثَـوَابَها إِلَىٰ قَـبْرِ

allāhumma ṣalli ʿalā muḥammadiw wa āli muḥammad, wab ʿath thawābahā ilā qabri ____

Oh, Allah! Bless Muḥammad and the progeny of Muḥammad, and send the reward of this prayer to the grave of ____.

In the blank space, one should say the name of the deceased person.
