Jaffarya Center of Niagara Frontier, NY, Inc.

اَللّـهُمَّ اجْعَلْ صِيامي فيهِ صِيامَ الصّائِمينَ، وَقِيامي فيهِ قيامَ الْقائِمينَ، وَنَبِّهْني فيهِ عَنْ نَوْمَةِ الْغافِلينَ، وَهَبْ لى جُرْمي فيهِ يا اِلـهَ الْعالَمينَ، وَاعْفُ عَنّي يا عافِياً عَنْ الْمجْرِمينَ

Lord! Make my fast in it one of those who truly fast, my prayers those of who truly pray, and awaken me from the sleep of the inattentive, grant me forgiveness for my sins in it, O Lord of the Worlds, and do forgive me, O One Who forgives criminals.

Brief Overview of the Month of Ramadhan:
By Dr. Raza Dungersi

Ramadhan is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar.

The Arabic word “Ramada” means severe heat. The month of Ramadhan was named thus meaning the month of severe heat. Fasting causes, among other things, thirst and fatigue: the products of heat. Hence this month of fasting is called “Ramadhan”. By some accounts, the word “Ramadhan” is one of the divine names; Masoomeen have therefore advised us, out of respect, to address this month as “Shahr Ramadhan”, or the month of Ramadhan and not simply Ramadhan.

Hadith of the Month

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): علَيكُم بِإتيانِ المَساجِدِ؛ فإنّها بُيوتُ اللّه‏ِ في الأرضِ ، ومَن أتاها مُتَطَهِّراً طَهَّرَهُ اللّه‏ُ مِن ذُنوبِهِ وكُتِبَ مِن زُوّارِهِ فَأكثِرُوا فيها مِن الصَّلاةِ والدُّعاء

'It is incumbent upon you to attend the mosques, for verily they are the houses of Allah on earth. And whoever enters them having purified himself, Allah will purify him of his sins and will record him down as one of its frequenters, so perform many prayers and supplications therein.’[Amali al-Saduq, p. 293, no. 8]
- Imam Jafar as-Sadiq A.S
