FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

My waraqat-ul-tarkhis has expired. How do I renew it?

Waraqat-ul-Tarkhis is essentially equivalent to a "safai chitti.” If it expires, please email orangecountyjamaat@gmail.com with your ITS numbers and request for renewal. If there is a specific date by which you need renewal (e.g., upcoming safar), please indicate that as well. The Jamaat will then check your good standing. Once cleared, you will be instructed to contact Janab Amil Saheb for raza.

I want to hold a function (darees, mitishitabi, shaadi, etc.) at Masjid. How do I do so?

As a first step, please preliminarily check Amil Saheb’s date availability directly with him. If he is available, then you must complete two forms online: the Mawaid Rental Form and the Lagat Form. Once those forms are completed, the Jamaat will check your good standing and send you an invoice for the Lagaat and Mawaid rental dues. Once the invoices are paid and good standing is confirmed, you will be instructed to contact Janab Amil Saheb for final raza.

Mawaid Rental Amounts: varies depending on the number of thaals, whether cleaning is required, whether kitchen will be used, etc.

Lagat Amounts:

  • Aqiqah: $153
  • Misaq: $172
  • Nikah (if performed in Orange County): $553 for bride and $553 for groom
  • Nikah (if conducted outside Orange County): $353

Please note that Lagaat does NOT include salaam to Janab Amil Saheb or Raza Na Saheb.

I have a function at Masjid on Saturday night. May I prepare the Mawaid and/or Sahen on Saturday morning?

Preparation in the Mawaid may only begin after 3:00 pm on Saturday.

Neither the Madressah nor the Jamaat is responsible for any damage to decorations or preparations that may occur between Friday and Saturday.

Preparation in the kitchen may begin after 1:30 pm on Saturday, but the kitchen doors and windows must remain closed. Entrance into the Mawwaid is not permitted until 3:00 pm. If there is too much disturbance from the kitchen, Janab Moallim is authorized to demand that preparations in the kitchen cease until 3:00 pm.

Preparation in the Sahen may begin after 11:00 am on Saturday.

I am having a private function (darees, mitishitabi, shaadi function, etc.). May I host it in the proper Masjid?

No. Private functions may only be hosted in the sahen and mawaid.
