Ramazan Week Four: Laylatul Qadr and Eid
In this last week of the holy month of Ramazan, we observed the holy night of Laylatul Qadr under the guidance of our Sheykh Lokman Efendi Hazretleri. It was a beautiful and memorable night where we had the opportunity to kiss the Sakl Sherif, the blessed beard hairs of the Holy Prophet AS. Additionally we observed special prayers for Laylatul Qadr as practiced by our GrandSheyks, led by Sheykh Lokman Efendi HZ. May all of the intentions, duas and good deeds of the Muslims be accepted for the sake of the Holy Prophet AS.
Though we always have a delicious meal for zhikr nights each Thursday, there is nothing like the Ramazan iftar! They will be missed.
The mesjid is being prepared for the Eid tomorrow with beautiful flowers and special decorations to mark the Eid as the unique and holy day that it is. Sheykh Lokman Efendi HZ gives a sohbet reminding us of what we must keep from Ramazan: the spirit and energy of worship, thankfulness, and controlling our desires and egos. May our efforts and intentions be accepted and may we reach another Ramazan under the guidance of our Sheykh, Amin!
