Celebrating Ramadan 2023 at SALAM Islamic Center
On behalf of SALAM, we pray that you, your family, and our community are able to reap the full benefits of this holy month of Ramadan. May Allah (SWT) amplify our good deeds and grant us mercy, forgiveness, and freedom from the fire.
We are thrilled to welcome you and your family to SALAM this Ramadan.
عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أتاكم رمضان شهر مبارك فرض الله عليكم صيامه تفتح فيه أبواب السماء وتغلق فيه أبواب الجحيم وتغل فيه مردة الشياطين لله فيه ليلة خير من ألف شهر من حرم خيرها فقد حرم رواه أحمد والنسائي
Abu Huraira reported God’s Messenger as saying, “Ramadan, a blessed month, has come to you during which God has made it obligatory for you to fast. In it the gates of heaven are opened, the gates of al-Jahim are locked, and the rebellious devils are chained. In it God has a night which is better than a thousand months. He who is deprived of its good has indeed suffered deprivation.” ~ Ahmad and Nasa’i

Support SALAM during the Month of Ramadan
We remind you of the importance of giving in charity during Ramadan.
As Allah (SWT) says in the Quran, “For those who give in Charity, men and women, and loan to Allah a Beautiful Loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and they shall have (besides) a liberal reward.”
Your giving will truly help support SALAM programs, services, and maintain the house of Allah.
