Eid ul Adha Salah Timings at Masjid Abubakr:
Due to the ongoing parking lot construction, there will be minimal or NO PARKING on the masjid property. Please park in the nearby public parking spaces and walk to the masjid.
**Abu Qatadah Al-Ansari (ra) narrated, ‘The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah (the 9th of the month of Dhul Hijjah). He replied, "Fasting on the day of Arafah is an expiation for the preceding year and the following year.” He was also asked about fasting on the day of Ashura (the 10th of the month of Muharram). He replied, “Fasting on the day of Ashura is an expiation for the preceding year.” The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was also asked about fasting on Monday, and he replied, "This is the day on which I was born and the day on which I was sent (with the Message of Islam) and the day on which I received revelation." Related by Muslim.
Alhamdulillah, we have begun the next phase of our parking lot construction process, during which demolition and other tasks will be undertaken to develop per the approved plan.
Please be advised that during this time, the parking lot will not be conducive for parking purposes. Please park your vehicles in public parking nearby and walk to the masjid. We regret the inconvenience caused during this period.
Please write a check to “Brookhaven Islamic Center Inc” and either put it within a donation box at the masjid or mail it to:Masjid Abu Bakr
Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab: I heard Allah's Messenger saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended. So whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration was for what he emigrated for."”
