Dear Members of the ICCNY Community.
 
I hope everyone is in good Health..
 
Just a reminder that we will begin our Summer Family Night Program beginning Friday, July 7th, 2017 inshaAllah. After Maghrib Prayer, there will be a lecture by Imam Nour. He will start a series about the life of Prophet, Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, from birth to death. Many lessons can be learnt from the life of Prophet, Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for our benefit in this worldly life and the life to come. The youth and the kids can benefit so much and learn a lot. After the lecture, there will be a pot-luck style dinner. We ask that everyone attending to bring a dish to feed at least 4-6 people.
 
InshaAllah, We hope to see you all there!

 فضل صيام عاشوراء

صيام يوم عاشوراء

 يكفر السنة الماضية لقول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم : ” صِيَامُ يَوْمِ عَرَفَةَ أَحْتَسِبُ عَلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يُكَفِّرَ السَّنَةَ الَّتِي قَبْلَهُ وَالسَّنَةَ الَّتِي بَعْدَهُ وَصِيَامُ يَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ أَحْتَسِبُ عَلَى اللَّهِ أَنْ يُكَفِّرَ السَّنَةَ الَّتِي قَبْلَهُ ” رواه مسلم 1162. وهذا من فضل الله علينا أن أعطانا بصيام يوم واحد تكفير ذنوب سنة كاملة والله ذو الفضل العظيم .

وقد كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يتحرى صيام يوم عاشوراء ؛ لما له من المكانة ، فعَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ : مَا رَأَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَتَحَرَّى صِيَامَ يَوْمٍ فَضَّلَهُ عَلَى غَيْرِهِ إِلا هَذَا الْيَوْمَ يَوْمَ عَاشُورَاءَ وَهَذَا الشَّهْرَ يَعْنِي شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ . ” رواه البخاري 1867

ومعنى ” يتحرى ” أي يقصد صومه لتحصيل ثوابه والرغبة فيه .

ثانياً : وأما سبب صوم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ليوم عاشوراء وحث الناس على صومه فهو ما رواه البخاري (1865) عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَ قَدِمَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمَدِينَةَ فَرَأَى الْيَهُودَ تَصُومُ يَوْمَ عَاشُورَاءَ فَقَالَ مَا هَذَا ؟ قَالُوا : هَذَا يَوْمٌ صَالِحٌ ، هَذَا يَوْمٌ نَجَّى اللَّهُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ عَدُوِّهِمْ فَصَامَهُ مُوسَى، قَالَ فَأَنَا أَحَقُّ بِمُوسَى مِنْكُمْ فَصَامَهُ وَأَمَرَ بِصِيَامِهِ ”

قوله : ( هذا يوم صالح ) في رواية مسلم ” هذا يوم عظيم أنجى الله فيه موسى وقومه وغرّق فرعون وقومه ” .

قوله : ( فصامه موسى ) زاد مسلم في روايته ” شكراً لله تعالى فنحن نصومه ” .

وفي رواية للبخاري ” ونحن نصومه تعظيما له ”

When our Prophet Mohamed ( PBUH) went to Medinah, he saw that people were fasting on this day and he asked them what was the purpose of their fast?  The people said it was because God had saved Prophet Moses from the Egyptian Pharoah.  Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) said “then I too will fast this day for Prophet Moses”.  It is known that God will forgive your sins of the past year for fasting on this one day of Ashurah.
May God forgive us our sins and and guide as in right path.  Ameen.
Best wishes to All,

Assalamu Alaikum!

ICCNY Stamford is pleased to announce the start of a new program : Learn Quranic Arabic The Practical Way

Every Friday: 6:30 to 7:30 PM

Where: Level Six classroom in School

The program will focus on teaching the Arabic language in a practical way using the daily Quranic verses that we recite in our daily prayers. The instructor will use the (Practice on real-life example/Repeat) method to bring non-Arabic speakers up to speed with the language. Knowing the meaning and how to use every single word in the Quranic verse will build a repository of words that the speaker will be able to understand when he or she hears them, and will be able to use the repository of words in conversations with Arabic speakers.
