Israa and Miraaj

Bism Allah Al Rahman Al Rahim – In The Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

Assalamu Alaikom Wa Rahmat Allah Wa Barakatuh

Dear Members of the ICCNY Community.

I hope everyone is in good Health..

Just a reminder that the ICCNY is planning a celebration for Israa and Miraaj (the Prophet’s Night Journey to Jerusalem and Ascension to Heavens) this Friday, April 21, 2017 at 6:00 pm. Many lessons can be learnt from the event for our benefit in this worldly life and the life to come. The program includes relevant lectures and other activities. After Maghrib Prayer, there will be a pot-luck style dinner and we ask that everyone attending would bring a dish to feed at least 4-6 people.

InshaAllah, We hope to see you all there!

 اللهم إنا نسألك
من الأحوالِ أحسنها …
ومن الأقوالِ أكرمها …
ومن القلوبِ أتقاها …
ومن الصدور أوسعها …
ومن  الظنون أخيرها…
ومن الحياة أطيبها…
وأسأل الله الذي لا يعجزه شيء في الأرض ولا في السماء ،،،
أن يعطيكم ، فيرضيكم …
ويرزقكم ، فيغنيكم …
ويجعلكم من سعداء الدنيا والآخرة  وصل اللهم وسلم وبارك على سيدنا وحبيبنا  محمد   وعلى آله الطيبين  الطاهرين صلاة إلى يوم الدين
