Most of the Atlanta area masajid have announced the Eid-ul Fitr to be tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/4) following the Saudi declaration. According to authentic astronomical data, there is a strong possibility that the moon will be sighted in the Western / South-Western states, Mexico and South America.
Based on this info, we will, in Sha Allah, join the greater Atlanta community and celebrate Eid-ul Fitr tomorrow on Tuesday as well. Masjid Jafar and Masjid Ar-Rehman will also join us.

Salaatul Ish'a tonight will be at 9.50 pm followed by Salaat-ul Taraweeh.
We request you to come at 9.30 pm tonight as Imam Yasir will cover the short tafseer of Juzz 1 before Isha'.
Salaat-ul Taraweeh will be offered right after Isha'. It will be led by Imam Yasir Abbasi. Hafiz Yousuf and Hafiz Ibrahim Mir will be part of his team. As per the established norm at Masjid Maryam to encourage and enhance confidence, other young Huffaz will be given limited opportunity to lead Taraweeh under the guidance of and the schedule by Imam Yasir.
Daily Educational Programs
1. This year's theme of after Maghreb tazkeer is Dua' (prayer). Every day one Dua' will be presented with translation, short description and an effort to memorize.
2. Short Tafseer of the Juzz of Quran being recited will be covered 15 min before Isha'.
Daily Iftar & Dinner will be arranged every evening. Please join the following groups in order to Sponsor during Ramadan.
Considering the recent violent incidents around the country and growing concerns of the community, Masjid Maraym has hired off duty police officers to be present at the masjid property every night from Maghreb until the end of Taraweeh to ensure the security and peace of mind of our community. It will cost us additional $3600 throughout the month of Ramadan. Please note that we have already hired a police officer during Jum'ah prayers. We are requesting every community member to please donate specifically for this purpose to bear the cost. If one family can take responsibility for a day, 30 members can easily cover it.
However, please remember that despite all these security arrangements and caution our trust is only in Allah (swt) and unwavering belief in the wisdom and decree of Allah (swt). May Allah (swt) protect and preserve!
Request for Du'aas
There are family members of some of our brothers and sisters who have passed away recently and some others are suffering from illnesses. All are requested to make Du'aas (prayers) for the departed souls and the complete recovery of those who are sick.
