Celebrating Eid Al Adha on Wednesday - June 28, 2023
Eid Al Adha Prayer at 9:00AM on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at the Calgary Soccer Centre SE
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 glorify the rite of Eid and the three days following. If one can slaughter, they should do so on these days and share the meat with family, friends, and the poor. Lastly, let it be a fun-filled day for the children and family.
Eid Al Adha Prayer will be held on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at the Calgary Soccer Centre SE. We will only have ONE Eid prayer at 9:00 AM. Please note that there will be NO Eid prayer at the Dar Al Hijra - IISC North East, Fairview Southeast Mosque or the Calgary Downtown Masjid location.
Please prepare adequately for the prayer by leaving your home early enough to anticipate traffic or congestion. Please bring your own prayer mats, and have wudu before arrival.
We would like to take this opportunity to advise 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 including the initial takbeer (Takbeeratul Ihram). The Second unit has 5 takbeeraat. There is flexibility in the number of takbeer.
Eid prayer is followed by a khutbah. You are encouraged to listen, but it is not obligatory and concludes with a duaa.
Greet and congratulate one another with greetings. "Eid Mubarak" (May your Eid be blessed) and "Taqballa Allahu minna wa minkum" (May Allah accept from you and us) are acceptable.
It is preferable to take a different path home than the one you took to come to the Musallah.
On behalf of the IISC, its 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! Was salam 'alaikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakaatuhu Islamic Information Society of Calgary (IISC).
