ICOI Open Mosque Day

We are glad that you have decided to visit our mosque which is a place of worship for all Muslims. We welcome all who would like to visit and observe the daily prayers and participate in the daily activities at the Islamic Center of Irvine. The following are the most frequently asked questions about visiting a mosque. If you need any more clarification please contact us at office@icoi.net What should I wear? It is most appropriate to wear modest, loose-fitting clothes. For men, it is better to wear long pants, and for women to wear pants or full-length skirts or dresses, with long sleeves. Muslim women typically wear a headscarf as well. Why do we take our shoes off? It is appropriate to remove one's shoes before entering the prayer area at a mosque, so that the carpets aren't covered with dirt--after all, that is where people pray. Where are the women praying? Women offer prayers in a separate room that provides them privacy. The women offer daily prayers in a room above the main prayer hall. However on special occasions when larger number of men and women attend prayer services such as Friday prayers or Ramadhan prayers, women gather in the ladies' prayer hall on the second floor of the mosque and other available rooms. What are the footsinks in the bathroom for? Muslims are supposed to be in a state of physical purification before making the prayer, which includes washing the feet. What happens when people join the prayer late? They will join the prayer already in progress, and after the imam (leader of the prayer) has finished, they will complete what they missed. How do Friday prayers work? Friday is the day of congregational prayers for Muslims--so a short sermon followed by a short prayer at the mosque in congregation is substituted for the regular noon-time prayer. The service begins with the call to prayer, followed by a lecture (rather, two short lectures with a brief pause in the middle). After the lecture (called a khutbah), another call to prayer is made and the congregation stands to follow the imam in the prayer. A few more guidelines... Cell phones A ringing cell phone is a distraction to any service at the mosque--please silence or power-off phones when entering the building. Talking during prayer If you need to talk to someone during the prayer (while you are not praying, of course,) please take the conversation outside the prayer hall into the lobby or hallways so as to not distract those who are praying. No standing/walking in front of someone praying If you are walking through the prayer area and come across someone who is praying, please walk behind, instead of in front of him. Shaking hands with opposite gender Please be aware that many Muslims do not shake hands with anyone of the opposite gender. That is, men do not shake hands with women, and women do not shake hands with men. Unless he/she extends his/her hand first, it is better to not extend yours. Looking forward to your participation in the open Mosque Day!

Vulnerability & Islam: Why God created humans weak. Why is there evil in this world?

What is Vulnerability & what are the different types? How can we protect our faith as we face challenges in life? How can we reach 'sakinah' tranquility in the midst of this painful world we live in today? Find out if your personality type is itself a vulnerability? Should all vulnerabilities be avoided? Can vulnerability give rise to strength? Allah says in the Quran that He designed the human being to be vulnerable and weak, why didn't He create us invulnerable and strong?
