Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh,

Eid will be on Friday, June 15, 2018.
Below are some reminders. We ask Allah to accept from all of us. Ameen.

Your brother,
Dr. Abdurahman Hejazi
PGMA Director of Religious Affairs

Eid Prayer: We plan to pray Eid on Friday at the Show Place Arena(14900 Pennsylvania Ave, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772). This is to make sure we will follow the Sunnah in praying all together at the same time, same place, and same congregation. Takbeerat will start at 8:00am, and Eid prayer will start at 9:00am sharpin shaa Allah. Please make sure to: 1) carpool, 2) bring your mat, and 3) be there by 8:30am at the latest as it gets very crowded at the entrance.

Zakat Al-Fitr: Once again, Zakat Al-Fitr is an obligation on every Muslim (old/young, male/female) who has enough food to cover his/her Eid day/night and more, please be aware that it must be given to the needy before you pray Eid. PGMA is helping the community by sending the cost to Islamic Relief who will be purchasing the qualified food and distributing that to the proper recipients all over the world. The amount is $10 per person. In order to ensure delivery, please make sure you pay this by no later than Thursday, June 14, 2018.

Friday Prayer: It was narrated in many authentic Hadiths that when Eid and Friday came together in the time of prophet Mohammed peace be upon him, he said to the people: “Two Eids have come together on this day of yours, so whoever wishes, the Eid prayer will suffice for Jumu’ah, but we will pray Jumu’ah”. That is, It is permissible, although not recommended, for those who attend Eid prayer to pray Zuhr prayer instead of Jumu’ah. Please note that this issue is subject to a difference in opinion between our scholars and we respect all. PGMA will continue to offer the two Friday prayers (at 12:00pm and at 1:15pm) in shaa Allah.

Welcome to Ramadan 2018 Seerah Competition:

This year’s theme is Seerah of the Prophet Mohammad Peace Be Upon Him – The Makkah Years.
Every day, you will be able to answer a set of questions about the life of the prophet Mohammad peace be upon him. Your goal is to answer as many as possible by the end of Ramadan!
We will be tracking your answers and will reward top performers on the night of the 29th of Ramadan inshallah!
Please note, you are only allowed one submission per day. If you submit more than one time only your first submission will be accepted.
As a resource, please refer to the famous book The Sealed Nectar, by Safi-Ur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri.
The competition starts on the first night of Ramadan.
