Spring Ahead One Hour!
Daylight Saving Time officially begins Sunday, March 12
The time change officially takes place at 2 a.m., but you don't have to spring out of bed and move the big hand on your clock ahead an hour. The change is automatic for most smartphones, computers, tablets and other digital devices.
If you're still using an analog alarm clock, you'll probably want to move it ahead before you go to sleep on Saturday, or when you wake up the next morning. 
This will change all the pray times and 2nd Jummah

Islamic Center In The News

Every community has a narra tive.  Either that community controls the narrative or the narrative cont rols the community. Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of the narrative. This can only be achieved if as a community we are building bridges and inroads with media.  Media outlets want to cover stories and do pieces that people are interested in. They want viewers, readers, comments, and discussions.  It is critical that as a community we are more visible and more vocal in the media.
We have been blessed for wide and positive coverage of the Center.  When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
