EĪD AL-AḌḤĀ (10th of Dhul-Ḥijjah 1441AH)

WILL BE

FRIDAY, JULY 31, 2020

IN SHĀ ALLĀH.

 

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF AND SHARE 

THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES FOR SALAT AL-EĪD THIS YEAR:

There will be no Eīd Salāh with the Masjid this year due to COVID-19. Families are advised and encouraged to pray Eīd Salāh in Jamā‘at (congregation) on their own and to observe all of the Sunnah actions of Eīd.

 

The Sunnah actions of Eīd al-Aḍḥā are:

  • To refrain from personal grooming (clipping nails, trimming/cutting hair, beard, etc.) from the beginning of Dhul-Ḥijjah for all those intending to perform an Uḍḥiyah/Qurbānī (animal sacrifice) during the days of 'Eīd until after the animal has been sacrificed (or at least until 'Eid day).

  • To fast on the Day of 'Arafah (9th of Dhul-Ḥijjah, the day before 'Eīd).

  • To loudly recite the Takbīr of Tashrīq at least one time after each Fard Ṣalāh for 23 prayers, starting from after Fajr on 'Arafah Day, until 'Aṣr on the 13th of Dhul-Ḥijjah (Monday, August 3rd, 2020). The Takbīr is:

اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ، اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ ، وَاللهُ أَكْبَرُ، اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ ،وَ لِلّٰهِ الْحَمْدُ

Allāhu Akbar Allāhu Akbar Lā Ilāha Ill Allāhu

Allāhu Akbar Allāh Akbar wa Lillāhil Hamd

  • To have a bath/shower (ghusl) before Eīd Salāh.

  • To brush one’s teeth with the Miswāk (wood-bristle toothbrush) before the Eīd Salāh.

  • To wear one’s best clothing.

  • To apply fragrance.

  • To refrain from eating anything from before Fajr until at least after praying Eīd al-Adhā Ṣalāt.

  • To take a different route for going to and coming from the place of 'Eīd Ṣalāh.

  • To recite the Takbīrāt until the Imām arrives to lead Eīd Salāh. 

 

The general guidelines for Eīd Salāh are:

 

  • The timing for Eīd Salāh is any time after the sun has fully risen (Ishrāq) until approximately 10-15 minutes before Zuhr beginning time (Zawāl).

  • There is no Adhān or Iqāmah for Eīd Salāh.

  • There is no Sunnah or Nafl prayers immediately before or after Eīd Salāh.

  • There should be a minimum of at least four (4) adult males to perform Eīd Salāh in Jamaat (congregation) according to the Hanafī School of Fiqh. According to the Mālikī, Shāfi'ī, and Hanbalī Schools of Fiqh, Eīd Salāh can be prayed in Jamā'at with less than four adult males as long as the Imam is an adult male. In addition, Eīd Salāh can be performed individually if Jamā'at is not possible according to the Mālikī, Shāfi'ī, and Hanbalī Schools.

  • If there isn't a minimum of at least four (4) adult males to perform Eīd Salāh in Jama'at, then according to the Hanafī School of Fiqh, individuals should pray two or four Rak‘ats Nafl of Salāt al-Duhā/Ishrāq. These will not be prayed in Jamā'at, there will be no extra Takbīrāt, the Qirā'at (recitation) will not be loud, and there is no Khutbah afterward.

  • It is Sunnah to give a short Khutbah (sermon) after Eīd Salāh and to sit between the two Khutbah. If the Khutbah is not given however, the Salāh will still be valid. Please click here for a sample of a short Arabic Khutbah for Eīd al-Aḍḥā.

  • There is no Qadā (makeup/replacement) for Eīd Salāh.

 

Please click here to read and download the detailed procedures for Eīd al-Aḍḥā Salah according to the Four Sunni Schools of Fiqh.

 

The Masjid will broadcast a live Eīd al-Aḍḥā Sermon by Mufti Niaz at 9:00AM on ‘Eīd day.

ICSJ reminds everyone to turn their attention towards Allāh ﷻ during these blessed days of Dhul-Ḥijjah.

May Allāh ﷻ accept our efforts and grant ʿĀfiyah.

Eīd al-Aḍḥā Mubārak.
