Assalamo Alikom Wa Rahmato Allah Wa Barakatoh,
Dear Brothers and sisters,

In the effort to keep the newsletter from almasjid.com continuous, we have decided to send it on a weekly basis. The newsletter will include announcements about the classes, activities and any news related to the Islamic Center of Columbia. In addition to announcements, we will select a Hadith about the Friday Prayer in order to revive the Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH) concerning Fridays.

If you are part of a committee and have an announcement, please send your weekly request by Thursday noon, to both islamiccenterofcolumbia@yahoo.com and eachraf@gmail.com

If you know of a particular Hadith about Friday and would like to share it with the community send it to eachraf@gmail.com. Please include the source of the Hadith in your email.

If you have any comments or concerns about the newsletter, send an email to eachraf@gmail.com
Jazakom Allah Khairan.

This week's Hadith:

Source: Sahi Bhkhari, Volume 2, Book 13, Number 8:

Narrated Salman-Al-Farsi:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Whoever takes a bath on Friday, purifies himself as much as he can, then uses his (hair) oil or perfumes himself with the scent of his house, then proceeds (for the Jumua prayer) and does not separate two persons sitting together (in the mosque), then prays as much as (Allah has) written for him and then remains silent while the Imam is delivering the Khutba, his sins in-between the present and the last Friday would be forgiven."
