- In the Name of Allaah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
The Month of Ramadaan, the Month of Qur'an
Assalaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu.
Dear brothers and sisters in deen:
According to the correct understanding of the authentic Sunnah and the guidance of the pious predecessors, we will be attempting to sight the moon on Monday, Sha'ban 29th, 1423H (November 4th). We urge the Muslims all over to do the same and let us know if the moon is sighted (512.693.2924). If moon is sighted elsewhere in the Muslim world, we will follow that sighting and declare Ramadaan biithnillah (Wahdatul Mataale'). Please read the featured articles on our website for further information. Alhamdulillah, this has been agreed upon by all the Austin Masajid.
Please check our website often for updates on the beginning of Ramadaan: www.callerstoislam.org

Iftar-dinner will be provided at Masjid Ibrahim on all the Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and the last ten days of Ramadaan, inshaAllah. We encourage the brothers and sisters to sponsor the iftar-dinner. We are accepting donations of $450 for each iftar-dinner. This may be shared between two or three sponsors, inshaAllaah.

Suhur will be provided on the last ten days inshaAllaah.
Also, we ask the community members to revive the sunnah of inviting Muslims at home for Iftar.
Taraweeh (or Qiyaam-ul-Layl) will start after Ishaa prayer. Ishaa will start at 7:45 pm, inshaAllah.
We will inshaAllah have short lessons every day during and/or at the end of the taraweeh prayer. Issues regarding Ramadaan, Tafseer, stories of the Sahaabah, Eid-ul-Fitr will be discussed extensively, inshaAllah.

Featured Articles of Ramadaan on webpage
Visit www.callerstoislam.org for featured articles on Ramadaan by the great scholars of our time. We will keep adding new articles inshaAlalah.
As we know, authentic sunnah instructs us to start & end the month of Ramadan with moon-sighting. So, based on that we will attempt to sight the moon on the 29th of Ramadaan and declare the Eid accordingly. If moon is sighted elsewhere in the Muslim world from trustworthy sources, we will follow that sighting and declare Ramadaan biithnillah (Wahdatul Mataale').
The venue, timing, and other details of Eid prayer will be announced in due time.
Etiquettes of Eid will be covered by Sheikh Khalid Syed in the last week of the Ramadaan (weekdays), inshaAllah.
We ask Allaah Jalla wa 'Alaa to not make us amongst those who pass the Ramadaan but are not forgiven. O! Allaah! save us from the Hellfire and enter us in Your Paradise.
