SIIJLA Ramadhan Program
"Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may learn piety and righteousness."
On behalf of the community, we would like to wish you all Ramadhan greetings on the upcoming arrival of this holy month. We thank Allah (SWT) for granting us another opportunity to enjoy the bounties of this month.
Ramadhan is a month of blessings and prayers. We ask Allah (swt) for His forgiveness. Let us also ask each other for forgiveness and include each other in our prayers. May Allah (swt) clear our hearts of all ill feelings and hurt and fill it with His love. It is also a month to mend and renew our personal relationships. May this month be one of peace and strengthening of our relationship with Allah (SWT).
SIIJLA will have Dua, the Kids' Workshop, lecture, and Iftaar Dinner on weekends. Amaal night programs will be on weekdays. Syed Ali Khalkhali will be joining us during the nights of Qadr. This Ramadhan, SIIJLA will also be hosting the Sunday School End of Year Ceremony, a Sports Night Competition, and an Eid Mela! Stay tuned for more "fun" nights for all ages. SIIJLA invites you, your families and friends to please join us during these programs.

Ramadhan Kids' Workshop
The Ramadhan Kids’ Workshop will once again take place every weekend in Ramadhan, Insha'Allah, conducted by Sisters Shehleez Raza and Nazneen Nathani Mirza. If you have a child/children between the ages of 3-12, please bring them to SIIJLA to participate in the program, which will feature lessons on Ramadhan and Islam through crafts, activities, and stories. Attendance every weekend is not mandatory, so come when you can! For planning purposes though, please contact Sister Shehleez Raza (305-331-6131 or firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can purchase enough supplies. A suggested donation of $20 per child is requested to cover the cost of materials.
May Allah (swt) bless us with good health and heal those who have aliments.
May Allah (swt) bless your generous spirit and accept your Duas during the upcoming holy month of Ramadhan. May He increase our sustenance and continue to keep us all under His grace and mercy, Ameen.
With Salaams & Duas,
SIIJLA Executive Council
