Assalam-o-Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatahu Brothers and Sisters, (Peace and Blessings be upon you)
Eid-ul- Fitr will be inn-sha-Allah (God Willingly) either on Sunday June 25th or Monday June 26th, 2017, depending on the sighting of the new moon for the month of Shawwal . Either day, the Eid ul Fitr Congregation will be at 9:00 am and prayers will start at 9:30 am SHARP at Hilton Stamford Hotel. (See detail address below) .
Dr Haqqani Mian Qadri, Imam Stamford Islamic Center will inn-sha-Allah lead the EID prayers. Indoor Parking is available at the hotel free of charge please allow extra 15 minutes for parking and also please bring your prayer rugs. Refreshments will be served.
Please note that Zakat ul Fitr this year is $12 per person. It is obligatory on the head of household to pay this before Eid prayers. The idea is to get this to the intended party (poor and needy) before the Eid day.
Please note once the moon is sighted (or not) we will announce the news on Saturday night by posting it on the website and via social media Facebook, Twitter.
