What is Eid Salah?
Prayer is a crucial part of Eid celebrations. On this day, Muslims join in congregational prayer and give thanks to Allah (SWT). The Eid celebration lasts for three days and is welcomed by the Eid Salah (prayer).
Following the Eid prayer on the first day of Eid al-Adha, we offer a sacrifice – Korban (Qurban) – to remember the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to Allah (SWT).
A portion of this meat (from a sheep, goat, cow, or camel) then goes to help those in need.
Where does prayer happen?
The Eid prayer, which takes place in the early morning (after Fajr) on the first day of Eid, is traditionally prayed in an open space or field subject to the weather conditions. The Eid prayer also takes place inside of mosques. Muslims are encouraged to pray in Jama’ah (congregation) with their local Muslim community on occasions such as Eid.
Please check with your local mosque for the prayer schedule in your local area.
