  • Eid Prayers Pre-Registration: Socially distanced Eid Al Adha

    Eid Prayers Pre-Registration: Socially distanced Eid Al Adha Dear Brothers and Sisters, As salam 'alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakaatuhu, Alhamdulillah, Allah has privileged us to witness another hajj in our life time. Just because we weren't able to go for hajj this year it doesn't mean that we will be deprived of reward. It was narrated from the companion Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari that: "Allah accepts supplications on the day of Ararfah". So let us make the most out from the rest of day with your supplication to Allah. Following the day of Arafah is the blessed day of Eid, on Friday - July 31, 2020. It is encouraged to praise, glorify, and magnify Allah on this day and the 3 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 Prayers will be held at the IISE (at 7:00 AM, 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM) with pre-registration opening on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 6:00 PM. Please click on the following poster for pre-registration, including the following additional links.
