Eid Mubarak – Sunday the 24th insha Allah


Al Salam Alaykom wa Rahmat Allah wa Barakatu

The Letterkenny Islamic Association wishes all Muslims in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal and all around the world a blessed Eid Mubarak on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr which is confirmed for Sunday the 24th of May insha Allah.

May God accept all our deeds during the holy month of Ramadan from us and from you.

Sadly, we will not be able to have Eid prayer together like we normally do and this is something we all shall miss. Just like we missed the taraweeh prayers during Ramadan. But alhamdulilah, we can still pray the Eid prayer and celebrate Eid with our families and even with 1 or 2 of our friends outside as long as we keep to social distancing.

We remember those who have lost loved ones due to the pandemic and pray to God for them and their families as well as pray for those who are working on the front lines to help our health service and keep our essential services running.

We remind all that Zakat ul-Fitr/Fitrana of course still needs to be paid before Eid prayer is offered. You may like to donate online to any number of Islamic charity websites. Three such sites are One Ummah, Islamic Relief and Iqra International. Or, if you still can, you could send the money to your other home country. Zakat ul-Fitr is €7 per person.

This might be a different Eid and while we can’t celebrate like we normally can, please remember to have fun and make sure that our children especially feel the fun of Eid. They need it. And we do too.

Jazakum Allah khairan.

Eid Mubarak to one and all.
