Treasury Department Statement Marking the Beginning of Ramadan

As Ramadan begins, the U.S. Department of the Treasury recognizes the particular importance of charitable giving throughout the holy month of Ramadan for Muslims in America and around the world. Charitable giving is a fundamental characteristic of many faiths, and zakat, one of the five pillars of Islam, is a sacred obligation for Muslims.

Treasury underscores its support for the important work of the charitable sector in providing essential services to those in need, both at home and abroad. Treasury remains committed to strengthening its engagement with the donor community and the charitable sector to support their efforts while at the same time, safeguarding charities from abuse by terrorist organizations. In recent years, the charitable sector has taken significant steps to promote transparency and to guard against such abuse.

We look forward to strengthening our partnership with the charitable sector and the donor community to further advance our shared objective of protecting legitimate charitable activity.

When the power goes out, only one place stays calm – The Masjid

Alhamdulillah! I am back from my first taraweeh. What an amazing night. One of the local Muslim communities near my home, the Islamic Society of Washington Area (ISWA), opened up to the public after months of construction for the first night of taraweeh this Ramadan. I usually go to other masajid, but this time I said I’d go to ISWA as much as possible since by distance it is the closest masjid to me. (There is also Muslim Community Center not to far, but ISWA is still closer).
