NEW Eid Mubarak!

We confirm that the new moon was not sighted on Friday 22nd May 2020, so Eid al-Fitr will be on Sunday 24th May 2020. We will NOT be holding any Eid Jama'at due to coronavirus.

In light of the current COVID-19 lockdown, those who follow the Shafi'i, Maliki and Hanbali Schools of Sunni Islamic law may perform the Eid prayer at home, even individually according to some schools. However, there is no requirement for the khutba.

As for those who follow the Hanafi School, the position taken by Shaykh Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani and many other scholars, is that the Eid prayer will not be performed in private homes where there is no public access. Rather, one may offer four raka'at supererogatory (nafl/duha) prayers. However, the position of some other contemporary Hanafi scholars is that the Eid prayer can be performed at home, but in a minimum congregation of four people.

Please stay safe and socially distant from friends and family while celebrating. Read more about this discussion here.
