Al Salam Alaykom wa Rahmat Allah wa Barakatu
The Letterkenny Islamic Association wishes to congratulate all Muslims in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal and all around the world on the occasion of Eid ul-Adha which is confirmed for Sunday the 11th of August insha Allah.
May Allah accept from us and from you.
There will be two Eid prayer sessions this year to accommodate the possible increase in numbers with Eid falling on a Sunday. The last time Eid prayers fell on a Sunday, the numbers were greater than the hall could accommodate with people coming from far and wide to pray in Letterkenny.
Session 1: Takbeer starts at 7:45 am with prayer at 8:15 am sharp.
Session 2: Takbeer starts at 10 am with prayer at 10:30 am sharp.
Venue: Letterkenny Community Centre
Please do come along early and join us in the takbeer. It’s part of the pleasure of Eid 🙂
The words of the takbeer are as follows.
الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر، لا إله إلا الله
الله أكبر الله أكبر، و لله الحمد
God is The Greatest, God is The Greatest. There is no deity except for God.
God is The Greatest, God is The Greatest. All praise is to God.
You can listen to what it sounds like here:
As with other Eid prayers, the whole family is encouraged to come so sisters and children can enjoy the occasion as well. We ask everyone to please bring prayer mats with them from home as the numbers have gotten very high in recent times.
There will be an Eid dish party later the same day so be sure to join us for that as well! More info here.
