Once again we would remind brothers and sisters about parking. Please arrive early, car share where possible and park responsibly, following the instructions of our stewards and volunteers.
Finally, SADAQAH AL-FITR (also Fitrana) is Wajib (compulsory) upon all Muslims – men, women and children – who on the day of Eid Al Fitr possess the Nisab (threshold) of Zakah. This is £4 per person and should be paid BEFORE Eid Salah.
On the day of Eid it is recommended by our Ulema to :
-Wake early for Tahajjud and Fajr
-Wear your best available clothes
-Use Miswak and fragrance
-Eat something sweet before leaving for Eid Salaat
-Have paid Sadqatul Fitr
-Go one way to masjid and return a different way
-When going to Eid Salaat, recite the following takbir softly
الله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، لا إله إلا الله ، والله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، ولله الحمد
Finally, we must keep the momentum which we have built up in Ramadhan going all year round with the support of Allah swt to keep us on the straight path. May Allah swt shower his mercy on this blessed day of Eid and may it be a new beginning of greater prosperity, success and happiness. And may the Noor of Allah swt enlighten our hearts. Ameen
