  • Eid ul-Fitr Announcement

    As per the announcement of Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) and Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) for Ramadan and Eid ul-Fitr, the end of the blessed month of Ramadan is on Saturday, May 23, 2020.  The first day of Shawwal and Eid ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Sunday, May 24, 2020.

    With the Governer’s “Stay home, Stay healthy” emergency order still in effect, the Spokane Islamic Center (SIC) will remain closed and will not hold Eid Prayer in the Masjid

    Based on the fatwa from the Fiqh Council of North America, Eid Prayer can be done at home with your family.  We advise families to observe all of the sunnahs of Eid (of taking a ghusl, eating breakfast, wearing one’s best cloths, saying the general takbeerat after Fajr, etc.) and then praying (2) rakat Eid Prayer at home with their own families, with the special takbeerat of Eid Prayer.  You are not required to give khutbah in every homeSIC will have a short lecture posed on Eid day that families can watch after they finish their own Eid Prayers.  Allah knows best.

    How to pray individually or lead your Family in Eid Prayer at Home:

    1. Intend – in your heart – to pray Eid

    2. Pray two Rakat aloud

    2a. First Rakat

    Begin the prayer with the Takbeerat-ul Ihram (the first takbeer i.e. Allahu Akbar) and then follow up with 7 more Takbeers (optionally, you may say silently: Subhanallah, alhamdulillah, wala ilaha illa Allah, Allahu akbar – between the takbeers).

    Once you finish the takbeers, recite surah Al-Fatihah followed by another Surah (Preferably Surah al-A’laa if you know it).

    2b. Second Rakat

    After you stand up for the 2nd rakat while saying Allahu Akbar, you will then repeat the Takbeer 5 more times (optionally, you may say silently: Subhanallah, alhamdulillah, wala ilaha illa Allah, Allahu akbar – between the takbeers). 

    Once you finish the takbeers, begin reciting Surah Al-Fatihah, followed by another Surah (preferably Al-Ghaashiya if you know it).

    4. Khutbak (Sermon)

    There is no khutbah to be read for Eid when prayed at home. Additionally, our Imam has prepared a short video of Eid reflections and reminders which you are encouraged to watch with your family after prayers.

    Sunna practices on the day of Eid:

    Before Eid Prayer:

    1. Perform Ghusl (bath)

    2. Eat before the Eid Prayer

    3. Wear your nicest clothes

    4. Recite takbeer starting after Fajr Prayer – “Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, laa ilaaha illa Allah, wa Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar wa lillah il-hamd”

    After Eid Prayer:

    Exchange congrats and well-wishes with your family by saying “Eid Mubarak” and “Taqabbala Allahu minna wa minkum” (translated: May Allah accept (good works) from us and from you). Use your favorite communication tools to reach out to your extended family and friends.

    Eid Mubarak! Taqabbala Allahu minna wa minkum.
