Establishing the Salah


Establishing the Salah


Al-Hamdulillah, ICG masjid is happy to be of service to the entire community at large. Therefore, we urge all of our Muslim Brothers and Sisters to benefit from the various facilities that are operational and available for services. Islamic Center of Greensboro is available for worshippers to come and perform the sacred and beautiful act of worshipping Allah in the congregation:

  1. The establishment of the Five Daily Prayers:

Prayers are for the heart, just like water is for a tree, given to it time after time, not all in one go and then it stops. Allah has enjoined His slaves five prayers at a specific time decreed by the wisdom of Allah so that the slave of Allah may be in contact with his or her lord in these prayers.

Secondly, part of the wisdom doing the prayers at these times is so that people will not get bored or find it too difficult, which would happen if they all had to be done at once and Allah knows best.

Fajr – The Dawn Prayer
Duhur – The Noon Prayer
Asr – The afternoon prayer
Maqrib – The Sunset Prayer
Isha – The Night Prayer

  1. The establishment of Jumu’ah Prayer:

Salatul Jumu’ah times may vary depending on the time of the year. Please reference salat times for current timings.  

1st Khutbah begins promptly at 12:00 pm

2nd Khutbah begins promptly at 1:00 pm

3rd Khutbah begins promptly at 2:00 pm

Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: “When it is Friday, the angels stand at the door of the mosque and keep on writing the names of those coming in order of their arrival. The example of the one who enters the mosque in the earliest hour is that of the one offering a camel (as a sacrifice). The one coming next is like the one offering a cow, then a ram, then a chicken, then an egg respectively. When the Imām comes out (for the Friday prayer), they (i.e. the angels) fold their scrolls and listen to the sermon.”

  1. Eid Prayer:

Eid is an important religious festival (holiday) celebrated annually around the world by millions of Muslims (or perhaps a billion). In fact, Eid means recurring happiness or festivity.

The first Eid comes after the month of long fasting called Ramadan. This Eid is called Eid Fitr. The second Eid usually falls during the Hajj season (or the annual Islamic pilgrimage).

  1. Taraweeh & Tahajud Prayer:

Taraweeh prayers are prayed in pairs of two. Taraweeh prayer is usually performed during the Islamic month of Ramadan after the isha of each day. It is best that you start and finish with the Imam as the prophet (PBUH) said: Whoever prays qiyaam with the imam until he [or she] finishes, it will be recorded for him as if he or she spent an entire night in prayer.” [Tirmidi 806, Abu Dawood 1375, and Irwa Al-Ghaleel 92/193]
