Eid-ul Fitr 2020 will be on Sunday the 24th of May
*Eid-ul Fitr 2020 will be on Sunday the 24th of May*
We make duaa that Allah SWA accepts our good deeds of Ramadhan and he grants a joyous and spiritual day of Eid to Muslims around the globe. (Ameen)
The Masjid will remain closed to the public due to the lockdown and there will be no Eid Jamaat in the park this year. Eid Jamaat should be offered according to Islamic guidance at home, workplace or elsewhere. Please ensure that you comply with the lockdown regulations at all times, pay the Sadaqatul Fitr via a reputable charity before Eid Salah time and observe the Sunnahs of Eid day.
The Eid Salah will be offered by a few key workers in the Masjid in accordance with the law. To help make this day special for everyone, Worthing Masjid will be broadcasting the Eid service live via its Masjid Facebook page:
The timings for this are as follows:
9.30am: English Bayan (Speech)
9.50am: Eid Salah (Do not follow from home. Please offer separately following the Islamic Guidance)
10.00am: Arabic Khutbah
Please observe all the etiquetes of Eid before 9.30am and thereafter join us to listen to the speech.
I know many people have questions regarding the fiqh of offering Eid Salah at home. To find the answer I would advise that you read the following portal endorsed by senior scholars around the U.K.
Everyone is requested to maintain respect for the various positions of scholars in this regard, and supplicate to Allah Almighty to protect us all and remove this calamity, so we can perform Ṣalah in the Masjids as soon as possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if any of your questions remain unanswered.
Finally on behalf of everyone at Worthing Masjid, I make duaa that you have an extremely profitable end to the month of Ramadhan as well as a joyous and spiritually uplifting day of Eid. (Ameen)
Imam Idris Nawab
