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.
