  • Observing and Celebrating Eid Al Adha - July 20, 2021

    July 19, 2021 Observing and Celebrating Eid Al Adha - July 20, 2021 Dear Brothers and Sisters, As salam 'alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakaatuhu, Alhamdulillah, Allah has privileged us to witness another Arafah and Eid. May Allah accept from us all. Ameen! It is encouraged to praise and glorify on this day Eid and the three days following. If one is able to slaughter, they should do so on these days and share the meat with family, friends, and the poor. Lastly, let it be a day filled with fun for the children and family. Eid Al Adha Prayer will be held on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, at the Calgary Soccer Centre SE. We will only have one Eid prayer at 8:45 AM. Please note that there will be no Eid prayer at the North East location or in our downtown location. Please prepare adequately for the prayer by leaving your home early enough to anticipate any traffic or congestion. Please bring your own prayer mats, have wudhu prior to arrival, and please bring a mask with you to be worn while indoors. We would like to take this opportunity to enlighten you about the day of Eid Al Adha and some of the recommended acts for this day: Taking a bath (Ghusl). Wearing one’s best clothes, and for the men perfuming themselves. Joining Eid Prayer with the congregation. Even if the woman is not praying she is encouraged to come and attend. The Eid prayer consists of 2 units. The first unit has 7 takbeeraat in it including the initial takbeer (Takbeeratul Ihram). The Second unit has 5 takbeeraat in it. There is flexibility in the number of takbeer. Eid prayer is followed by a Khutbah, which is encouraged to listen to but not obligatory, and concluded with a dua. Greet and congratulate one another with greetings. "Eid Mubarak" (May your Eid be blessed) and "Taqballa Allahu minna wa minkum" (May Allah accept from us and from you) are acceptable. It is preferable to take a different path home than the one that you took to come to the Musallah. On behalf of the IISC, it's administration, volunteers and our Imams, we wish you all a blessed and happy Eid. May Allah (SWT) accept all of our good deeds and forgive all of our sins. Ameen!

COVID-19: As vaccinations become more accessible and cases of COVID-19 continue to rapidly decrease across the country, we look forward to a near future where we can return to normal congregations at the mosque and at home, Insha’Allah. To achieve this reality and protect our communities in the face of spreading variants of concern, it is critically important that we work together to help as many community members get vaccinated as possible, while continuing to abide by the latest local public health guidelines. With this in mind, we have provided recommendations for a safe observance and celebration of Eid-ul-Adha this year. Masking during prayer is optional as long as you are following local public health guidelines, including upon entry and exit. Individuals that are at high risk, not fully vaccinated (i.e. it has not been 14 days since the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine), or otherwise not comfortable should consider wearing a mask for additional protection. You shall stay home, when you are not feeling well. All individuals should ensure all celebrations and gatherings are in compliance with both provincial and municipal public health bylaws and requirements.
