Ramadan

As our community welcomes the month of Ramadan, the Hoover Crescent Islamic Center, the Homewood Masjid and the West Side Masjid will try to put together all possible efforts to make it comfortable for each and every one. Please follow the instructions of our shura and our hard working volunteers.

On the basis of this method the dates of Ramadan for the year 1441 AH is established as April 24, 2020 – May 23, 2020.
