This blessed month is a great opportunity for goodness, barakah (blessing), worship and obedience towards Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): "The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'aan, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong). So whoever of you sights (the crescent on the first night of) the month (of Ramadan i.e. is present at his home), he must observe Sawm (fasts) that month, and whoever is ill or on a journey, the same number [of days which one did not observe Sawm (fasts) must be made up] from other days. Allaah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you. (He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allaah [i.e. to say Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar: Allaah is the Most Great)] for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him." (2:185)

In the Name of Allah, The Ever-Merciful
By the mercy of Allah and your continuous financial support, finally we have purchased the sixth floor. Alhamdulillah, the entire building belongs now to the masjid! However, our journey does not end here. Now we must put our hands together once again in order to make the House of Allah debt free!
