Programs Offered During Ramadan

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
Jurisprudence), reviewing the common fiqh chapters of tahrah (physical purity), salah,
zakah, and fasting. We encourage everyone to attend the programs along with their
friends and family.

Message from the President

As-Salamu Alaykum,

Al’Hamdulillah, we have been blessed with the auspicious month of Ramadan. May Allah SWT accept our fasts, prayers, recitation of the Quran and accept our Dua’s. Insha’Allah, we will begin Salatul-Taraveeh either on Sunday or Monday (decision based on the Chicago Hilal committee) and the Salatul-Isha time is at 9:45PM at Makki Masjid. We have arranged parking at Albank (entrance off of Kimball Ave) from 9:30PM till 12:30AM during the entire month of Ramadan. We would like to mention that there is NO need to double park in any of the Makki Masjid or MEA parking lots. The Albank facility has plenty of parking available to accommodate every musalli that will come for Salatul-Isha/Taraveeh. For a copy of the timetable please visit our website at www.makkimasjid.com.

Makki Masjid will also be providing Iftar at our MEA facility (4926 N. Kimball Ave, entrance from rear). If you would like to sponsor an Iftar, please go online to www.makkimasjid.com to do so or contact Br. Ilyas at 773-524-8825 or Br. Zakir at 312-493-3431 for further details. Please DO NOT double park the cars when coming for Iftar.

Lastly, as we all know that the prayers will be done very late in the evening, we hope that you will come/leave quietly while coming for prayers. We do not want to disturb our neighbors and hope that you can respect the silence. If you bring your children, please ensure that they are with you at all times.

Please join daily Dars in Urdu from 6:45-7:30 and in English from 7:35 to Iftar time.

From all of us at Makki Masjid,

Ramadan Mubarak!
