We are pleased to announce that this week we will be honored with the presence of respected Imam Shakil Ahmed Vawda this Friday, February 1st, 2019, as our guest Khatib.
Imam Shakil Ahmed Vawda is the Imam/director of Nazarah program for Islamic Center of Frisco Texas, where he leads the prayers and teaches the children Quran.
Coming early to Jumu’ah brings a great reward:
Al-Bukhaari (814) and Muslim (850) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does ghusl on Friday like ghusl for janaabah, then goes to the prayer (in the first hour, i.e., early), it is as if he sacrificed a camel. Whoever goes in the second hour, it is as if he sacrificed a cow; whoever goes in the third hour, it is as if he sacrificed a horned ram; whoever goes in the fourth hour, it is as if he sacrificed a hen; and whoever goes in the fifth hour it is as if he offered an egg. When the imam comes out, the angels come to listen to the khutbah.”
