Everyone is invited and greatly encouraged to join us before and after the Eidul Fitr celebration to the annual Community Center Clean-Up. This program helps promote communal responsibility and cooperation in regards to maintaining our community center.
As Muslims, we should take the initiative to keep the Masjid in the best shape possible.
1. The Blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whosoever removes adhaa (anything repulsive or harmful) from the masjid, Allah will make a house for him in Jannah.” (ibn majah)
2. The Blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) once saw phlegm on the wall of the masjid. His face became red with anger. A woman among the Ansaar came, removed it, and replaced it with incense.
3. Abu Hurairah narrated that: “A man or a woman used to clean the mosque.” (Most probably a woman according to a sub-narrator). According to another hadith, the Prophet offered her funeral prayer at her grave. [Sahih al-Bukhari: Vol. 1, #450]
4. Abu Malik at-Ash’ari reported: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith
And REMEMBER: Small deeds are magnified by good intentions!
KIDS UNDER 12 ARE NOT ALLOWED because we will all be so busy cleaning. No babysitting is available.”
