It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“Every deed of the son of Adam will be multiplied for him, between ten and seven
hundred times for each merit. Allah said: ‘Except for fasting, for it is for Me and I shall
reward for it.'” (Sunan ibn-Majah, 3823)
Join us at Makki Masjid for an opportunity to take advantage of this Holy Month which
we have been blessed to experience once again. Makki Masjid offers a multitude
programs catering to both the English and Urdu speaking. Programs include daily
lectures to spiritually purify ourselves so that we may receive the most benefit. We
would also like to offer the community a chance to brush up on their fiqh (Islamic

zakah, and fasting. We encourage everyone to attend the programs along with their
friends and family.
