Prophetic Duaa for Welcoming the New Month
عَنْ طَلْحَةَ بنِ عُبْيدِ اللَّهِ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ ﷺ كانَ إِذا رَأَى الهِلالَ قَالَ
اللهُمَّ أَهِلَّهُ عَلَيْنَا بِالْيُمْنِ وَالْإِيمَانِ، وَالسَّلامَةِ وَالْإِسْلامِ، رَبِّي وَرَبُّكَ اللهُ
Talha (Allah be pleased with him) relates that when the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) would see the new moon, he would say:
Allahumma ahhilhu `alayna bi’l yumni wa’l imani wa’s salamati wa’l Islami Rabbi wa Rabbuka’l Lah
“O ALLAH , bring it to us with felicity, faith, safety, and submission. My Lord and Your Lord is Allah.” (Tirmidhi)
Insha‘Allah, on Thursday, March 23rd, 2023 the Islamic Center of Long Island (ICLI) will begin the Blessed month of Ramadan with the first Taraweeh prayer on Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023.
ICLI follows the Fiqh Council of North America, for the start and completion of the month of Ramadan.
