The Spiritual Retreat (Itikaf)

Itikaf will be held in the last 10 days of Ramadan. If you plan to take part, please sign-up in advance by emailing us at info@ValleyRanchMasjid.org . Due to safety and planning issues, we have 10 spots available this year and will be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis. We will not be able to accommodate any more once the count of 10 is completed. No children under the age of 18 will be allowed to stay in Itikaf without their parent accompanying them.

Parking during Jumu’ah and Evenings

During Jumu’ah prayers parking is allowed in designated areas or as directed by police officers. There is absolutely NO Parking allowed at the Dentist Office and Dry Cleaners. Any illegally parked vehicles will be subject to immediate towing, at the owner’s expense.

Security guards will be employed in the evenings to direct traffic and maintain security and control during Ramadan.

During the evenings, parking is available at:

  • Main parking lots
  • Extended parking lot
  • Adjacent day care and Walgreens pharmacy (only the parking stalls facing Valley Ranch Pkwy and MacArthur Blvd)

Nightly Childcare

VRIC has made special arrangements this Ramadan for Professional Childcare for children ages 12 months – 8 years. We have leased a portion of the Pierce Daycare center next to VRIC and contracted a Licensed Childcare Service to make it easier for parents during Taraweeh prayers.

The service is available at no cost to everyone, but the suggested donation amount is $10 a night! This will ensure we can pay for the sitters and the use of the Pierce Daycare center.  Donate here!
Please check the Guidelines below about how to sign up.

Since there is no charge for the service, we encourage all parents to enroll their kids every night in the Kid Kare program. If you choose to keep your kids with you in the Mommy & Me room, then the parent must remain with their child at all times. No children are allowed in the Mommy & Me room alone. Lastly, children causing a disturbance to those that are praying in the Mommy & Me room will be required to go to the VRIC Kid Kare program.

VRIC’s Ramadan Childcare Service is unique and we expect high demand for it. Therefore, placement in the Childcare Service each night is on a first-come, first-serve basis, so we highly recommend that parents arrive early.
