In the name of God the most Merciful, the most compassionate.
Alsalaam Aleekum Wa Rahmat Allah Wa Barakatuh / Peace be upon you:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ 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, that you may (learn) self-restraint.” Qur’an 2:183
Ramadan Kareem Brothers & Sisters!
The Sammamish Muslim Association (SMA) has decided to follow ISNA’s Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) to determine the first day of Ramadan 1442H and first day of Shawwal 1442H. According to ISNA’s Fiqh Council, the first day of Ramadan 1442H will be on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 and the first day of Shawwal/Eid ul-Fitr will be on Thursday, May 13, 2021. The first Taraweeh prayer will start on Monday, April 12, 2021 night and first day of fasting will be on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, insh'Allah.
Please find the salaah times for Ramadan above. For the duration of Ramadan, Fajr salaat will follow adhan stated in the Ramadan prayer timings above rather than the website iqama times.
Taraweeh will immediately follow Ishaa adhan, insh'Allah. Registration for Taraweeh will follow the same protocol as Jummah salaat, with registration through eventbrite links sent through weekly emails, insh'Allah. Registration links will additionally be accessible through www.sammamishmosque.com/
