Ramadan is a special time for all Islamic organizations around the world, including ours. Your support during this month allows us to continue our programming throughout the year. The Prophet (SAWS) said,
"Whoever performs any good deed in the month of Ramadan will obtain the reward of an obligatory act; and whoever performs an obligatory act of devotion will be rewarded seventy times more than in any other month." (Ibn Khuzaimah)

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."”
