"Whomever fasts in Ramadan by believing in its virtue and expecting its reward from Allah, his past sins will be forgiven." (Bukhârî, Savm, 6) 

Ramadan Sharif is the ninth of the 12 months according to the lunar calendar, and Allah has commanded us to fast in this month. 

يَٓا اَيُّهَا الَّذ۪ينَ اٰمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذ۪ينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْتَتَّقُونَۙ 


O you who believe, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you so that you may become righteous – (Al-Baqarah 183) 

In addition, the night of Qadr, is when the Quran began to be revealed, is one night that is hidden in the last 10 days of this month. For this reason, it is extremely important  for every Muslim to take advantage of the night of Qadr by fasting in the mornings and worshiping at night. 

لَيْلَةُ الْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ اَلْفِ شَهْرٍۜ 

The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months. (Al-Qadr 3) 

Every Ramadan, at all The United American Muslims Association's branches, Muqabala (people reciting the Qur'an to each other) is performed.  

In this way, the Sunnah of reciting that the Prophet saw and Jibreel (AS) did is imitated, so a sacred ambiance is experienced. You may also contact our nearest branch to join us. 

مَن تَمَسَّكَ بِسُنَّتِي عِندَ فَسادِ أُمَّتِي فَلهُ أَجْرُ مِائِةِ شَهيدٍ 

"Whomever embraces my sunnah at the time of the depravement of my ummah has the reward of a hundred martyrs." 

Fasting requires not only staying away from food but also avoiding all acts of sin. This will only be possible by spending time with good people in good places.  

"A perfect and rewarding fast is to not only stop eating and drinking but, to refrain from all acts of useless words, leisure time, saying bad things and all the desires of the Nafs. The Prophet saw teaches us that if a person curses at you, acts ignorantly against you, belittles you; Say "Surely I am fasting!" and be patient! " (Hakim, Müstadrak, I, 595) 

The fasting person avoids eating and sexual intercourse between sun down to sunset and has Iftaar (Feast) as an act of worship when the sunsets. It is highly recommended  to be together with other brothers and sisters during iftar and sahur/suhoor and to evaluate the month of Ramadan by living the integrity of the ummah. If possible, iftar and Sahoor meals should be offered to fasting people. 

‘Whomever feeds a person breaking his/her fast will earn the same reward as him/her, without any rewards decreased from the fasting person’. (Tirmidhi, Savm 82) 

The United American Muslim Association invites all of our Muslim brothers and sisters to their iftar and sahoor events it organizes on behalf of it’s donors. 

You can also sponsor an iftaar or sahoor  to the students of Quran.  

After our iftaar program, a sermon is given every day of relevant topics regarding Hadith, Fiqh and Tafseer in all of our branches. Every night Tarawih prayer is performed in congregation. We hope to spend these precious times with you, our brothers and sisters. 

Sadaqah Al-Fitr

Fitr alms is a Sadaqah that is Wajib to be given in the month of Ramadan Sharif. It is Wajib for every Muslim who has wealth other than his/her basic needs and more than the Nisab amount.  

In Sadaqah Al-Fitr, the amount of nisab/quorum is NOT required to exceed 1 year from the acquisition of the property. Fitr sadaqah should be given before the time of Eid Prayer. 

قُلْ اِنَّ رَبّ۪ي يَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ يَشَٓاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِه۪ وَيَقْدِرُ لَهُۜ وَمَٓا اَنْفَقْتُمْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ فَهُوَ يُخْلِفُهُۚ وَهُوَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِق۪ينَ 

Say, "Indeed, my Lord extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts [it] for him. But whatever things you spend [in His cause] - He will compensate it; and He is the best of providers." (Surah Saba, 39) 

The United American Muslim Association delivers your Sadaqah Al-Fitr to the students of Quran on your behalf.  

Within our students studying in North America, especially our orphans and refugee students who are facing financial difficulties, continue their education with the Zakat and charity of it’s generous donors.  

Our students, to whom we will deliver your sadaqah, learn about the Quranic sciences, using the “ IE Method" with a special curriculum. 

It is ensured that our students are raised as good Muslims who are committed to their religious and moral values. 

Thanks to this education he/she has received, he/she can devote his life to the services of the Quran, or he/she continues his/her life as a model Muslim in society by choosing the profession he/she finds appropriate for him/her. 

Helping the students of Qur'an to get an education is also Sadaqah jariyah.
