Little bit about our wonderful communit:
IST boasts its presence among passionate brother and sisters of Islam. Serving tirelessly to accommodate and quench the competing thirst of Imaan and Yaqeen.
The current space is large enough for daily congregational prayers but during Jum’ah, Ramadan and Eid most people pray outside on the ground. IST needs help overcoming the initial financial barrier in expanding the space for a larger jamaa and Islamic school (Madrasah) for children that will cater subjects such as Tarbiyyah, Arabic language, Fiqh, Quran and many more.

MUHARRAM, A SACRED MONTH
MUHARRAM is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Muharram means “Forbidden.” Even before Islam, this month was always known as a scared month in which all unlawful acts were forbidden, prominently the shedding of blood. It is one of the four sanctified months about which Allah Ta’ala says: “The number of months in the sight of Allah are twelve, so ordained by Allah, the day He created the heavens and the earth; Of them four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so wrong not yourselves therein.” (Surah Tawbah – verse 36) The four sanctified months according to authentic Ahaadeeth are the months of Zul- Qa’dah, Zul-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab. The sanctity of these months was observed in the shariah of all the previous Prophets. “Allah Ta’ala made them (i.e. the four months) sacred and increased their sanctity. Hence He declared a sin therein more severe and increased the virtue of good deeds and the reward thereof.” (Ibn Katheer Vol.2)
The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhaan is the fast during Allah’s month of Muharram and the best of Salaah besides the Faraaidh (obligatory salaah) is the Tahajjud Salaah (performed after midnight). (Muslim,Vol. 1)
THE DAY OF AASHURAH (10TH OF MUHARRAM)
The Tenth of Muharram, known as the day of Aashura, is a very significant day in the Islamic Calendar. Nabi (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) has exhorted the Ummah to fast on this day. Sayyadatina Aaisha (rahiyallahu anha) reports that Nabi (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) ordered the observance of the fast of Aashura.
Sayyadina Ibn Abbaas(radhiyallahu anhu) says: “I did not see Rasulullah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) anxiously await the fast of any day, which he gave preference to (over other days), except this day of Aashura and the month of Ramadhaan.” (Bukhari, Vol. 1)
Hadeeth: Sayyiduna Abu Saeed Al Khudri رضي الله عنه narrates that Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “He who recites Surah al-Kahf on a Friday Allah will provide him with light from one Friday to the next Friday.” (Muslim)
