Please plan to join us online, leaving enough time margin to perform Prayers in a stress free environment.

Prepare yourself as if you were attending the Eid prayer physically:

Remember to supplicate to Allah SWT the night of the Eid and ask him to accept all our worship during this blessed month of Ramadan, and to forgive our shortcomings and to ease the hardship of our brothers and sisters in Islam and Humanity.

Next,

Prepare a dedicated prayer space in your home the night before.

Morning of Eid Day:
1) Follow the Sunnah of the Prophet SWS by eating something after Fajr to demonstrate the end of the month of Ramadan.
2) Take a shower, apply perfume, and wear your best garment for this special day.
3) Conduct the Eid prayer as a family. If you are unable to do so, you can follow Imam on the live stream.
4) Listen to the khutbah
5) Congratulate each other.

While this Eid is different, all of us should do our best to make this day a special occasion for our family to celebrate in joy and happiness while being grateful to Allah for his countless blessings. 

?Please keep asking Allah SWT to lift this pandemic on all of his creation, to keep us safe and healthy and to allow us to return to His houses.
