As Salaam Alaikum
The ICF Shurah has determined that there were no confirmed sightings of the hilal anywhere in the world as of local Isha time on Monday, April 12th, 2021. Therefore, in accordance with ICF policy the first day of fasting for Ramadan InshaAllah will be Wednesday, April 14th.
RAMADAN MUBARAK !!!!!
ICF policy is that we must confirm a sighting by the start of Isha Salat for us to declare the start of Ramadan. Although sightings could possibly be declared on the west coast or South America later than that, we do not ask our community to wait so late (midnight or later local time) for a decision.
Because the hilal sighting was not confirmed, then Insha’Allah Tuesday night will be our first night of tarawih salat, and Wednesday will be the first fasting day.
Those wishing to attend Isha and tarawih must follow the same Covid-19 protocols as required for our Jummuah attendance (please see below). For security and Covid-19 compliance verification, our doors will be locked at the start of Tarawih. So, please be on time! Doors WILL NOT BE REOPENED FOR LATECOMERS. Please do not show up late and bang on the doors disturbing the salat of others.
Insha’Allah, in addition to nightly tarawih salat, starting on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm local, and each day throughout Ramadan, we will host a tafsir Quran lecture live via Zoom and Facebook. Due to the unavailability of our ICF Imam, this year’s lecture will be provided by Imam Yunus, a hafiz Quran in Ghana. Insha’Allah he will be providing a detailed tafsir of Surah Luqman (Surah 31). Additionally, on Saturday and Sunday mornings during Ramadan, ICF’s Imam, Hafiz Hamid Mohammed, will provide a short tafsir after Fajr using our Zoom and Facebook platforms. If you do not already have the link and password for our Zoom meeting session, please send us an email to request it. Insha’Allah we will be providing more details about our Ramadan activities in the days to come. May Allah grant us all the ability to perform the requirements of Ramadan in the best manner that is acceptable and rewarded bountifully!
A short reminder about preparing our hearts before the start of Ramadan.

Ramadan is almost here! Insha’Allah ICF will conduct tarawih salat throughout the month. Wearing masks, using hand sanitizer, social distancing, and limited capacity attendance will still be required for entry just as is required for our limited Jummuah Salat. Insha’Allah we will pray Isha salat (starting on Monday night, April 12th if the hilal is sighted) followed immediately by tarawih. Please be on time for the salat as the doors will be closed and locked once tarawih starts and latecomers will not be admitted. As we prepare for the arrival of Ramadan, please enjoy the following reminder from Shaykh, Dr. Omar Suleiman about getting prepared for Ramadan:

ICF is a formally registered and chartered charitable religious organization recognized under the laws of the United States federal government as well as the state of North Carolina.
The Islamic Center of Fayetteville was established as an organization in 2008 for the purpose of establishing a masjid, school, and dawah center in a central location in the city of Fayetteville, North Carolina. From years of working and living in this city, the organization founders believed that there was a need for these services in this location.
Through significant personal efforts and financial contributions and local fundraising, ICF established its first physical location in a rented structure on Grove Street in 2008. In 2010 we moved operations to another rented location, and in 2011 we moved to yet another rental site at 607 German Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina. In just ten relatively short years, Allah Blessed us to purchase our current facility at 2415 Rosehill Road on August 23rd, 2018. At our new, and insha’Allah permanent facility, we hope to continue our regular activities which include hosting Jummah Salat every Friday, regular weekend Islamic study activities for children and adults, ICF community social activities, community outreach activities, Annual Islamic Conferences, an annual college scholarship program, and both Eid and janazah functions in participation with other local Islamic communities.
