Eid Al Adha announcement

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Eid Al Adha will be on Monday the 12 of September.


Prayers will be at 9:00 SHARP. 


Salat al Eid

The Prayer of Eid- can be performed individually if one has missed the Jama’at. This prayer is Sunnat during the period of occultation of the Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.).  The prayer can be prayed from sunrise until the time of descent of the Sun (zawal).  If that timing is not observed then this namaz cannot be prayed as a QAZA namaz. 

The Eid Prayer consists of two Rak`ahs. In the first Rak`ah, one may recite Surah of al-Fatihah and Surah Al A’alaMp3(No. 87). After the recitation of these Surahs, one may say the takbeer statement (i.e. allahu-akbar) five times and raise the hands for the Qunut after each takbeer, saying:

(I beseech You) that You may send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

وَأَنْ تُدْخِلَنِي فِي كُلّ خَيْرٍ أَدْخَلْتَ فِيهِ مُحَمّداً وَآلَ مُحَمّدٍ،

wa an tudkhilany fe kulli khayrin adkhalta fehi muhammadan wa ala muhammadin

And You may include me with every item of goodness with which You have included Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

وَأَنْ تُخْرِجَنِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوءٍ أَخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمّداً وَآلَ مُحَمّدٍ

wa an tukhrijany min kulli su‘in akhrajta minhu muhammadan wa ala muhammadin

salawatuka `alayhi wa `alayhim

May Your blessings be upon him and upon them.

اللّهُمّ إِنّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ،

allahumma inne as’aluka khayra ma sa’alaka `ibaduka alssalihuna

O Allah: I pray You for the best of all that for which Your righteous servants have prayed You,

وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِمَّا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُونَ.

wa a`udhu bika mimma ista`adha minhu `ibaduka alssalihuna

And I seek Your protection against all that against which Your righteous servants have asked Your protection.

You may then say the takber for the sixth time, and do the genuflection (ruku`), and prostrate yourself (sujud). When you stand up for the second Rak`ah, recite Surah of al-Fatihah and Surah As Shams Mp3(No. 91) and then say the takbeer four times only raising the hands for the Qunut after each takbeer. After that, say the fifth takbeer and continue the prayer. After accomplishment of the prayer, say the famous Tasbeh al-Zahra’ (a.s).

It is recommended to offer the Eid Prayer outdoors, directly on the ground without putting a carpet or any other thing under the feet, to return from a way other than the one taken in the coming, to pray Almighty Allah for accepting the acts of one’s brethren-in-faith.
