Eid Salaah Times
|Prayer times will be shown closer to Eid Celebration|
HOLBORN MUSLIM COMMUNITY AND WELFARE ASSOCIATION would like to convey Eid greetings to all its worshippers and Muslims across the world.
Eid is a time of joy and celebration, to be spent with loved ones, family and friends. Eid is a time to continue further on the path towards spiritual development, through recitation of Qur’an, dhikr of Allah and reflection.
Eid ul-Fitr marks the conclusion of fasting in the month of Ramadan.
We remind our congregation that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal, it is as if they fasted the entire year.” (Sahih Muslim)
Eid-ul-Adha, the greater Eid, which follows the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, at the time of Qurbani (sacrifice).
Although Eid-ul-Adha has no direct relation to the Hajj Pilgrimage, it is but a day after the completion of Hajj and therefore has significance in time.
The celebration of Eid-ul-Adha is to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to Allah SWT and his readiness to sacrifice his son, Ismail. At the very point of sacrifice, Allah SWT replaced Ismail with a ram, which was to be slaughtered in place of his son. This command from Allah SWT was a test of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness and commitment to obey his Lord’s command, without question. Therefore, Eid-ul-Adha means the festival of sacrifice.
