As Salamu Aliukum , We would like to congratulate the new ICTC (Islamic Center of Tri Cities ) Executive Committee. We pray that the community continues to grow and flourish and we look forward to continued collaboration towards strengthening our roots as a community, contributing positively to our city and connecting with the greater Tri Cities society.
The ICTC Election Committee has announced the outcomes of the ICTC Executive Council (EC) election process for the term 2022-2024
We are pleased to introduce the incoming ICTC Executive Council:
Yar Siddiqi, President
Ahmad Fora, Vice President
Ismail Qadi, Secretary
Sadik Reka, Treasurer
We congratulate the incoming EC members on their election and ask Allah (swt) to guide them in serving our community and beyond.
We would like to remind you that starting 04/05/19 our Friday prayer will start at 1 pm which means the Khutbah will start at 1 pm and the prayer will be around 1:30 PM. This Friday prayer timing will be kept for year around. We already discussed this with multiple Imams and our religious leaders and also results of community survey showed that more than 80% are in favor of the change.
There are two different opinions about this and both supported by authentic hadiths, one that has no objection of having Friday prayer prior to Duhr prayer and the second one favor the Friday prayer no earlier than Duhr prayer time. In our situation, staring at 1 pm and praying around 1:30 pm puts us year around after the Duhr prayer in the north west (the latest is 1:08 pm in June).
The objective of this change is to ease and allow community members who are working on Friday to attend prayer in a consistent time and have a fixed lunch break.
