Alsalam Alikum Dear brothers and sisters,
We pray to Allah SWT that everyone is making maximum effort in Ibadah these glorious 10 days of Thul Hijjah. We pray that everyone capable is planning on fasting the day of Arafa which falls tomorrow, Monday the 19th Insha Allah.
Eid Prayer Timings
The heavy rain we received made part of our soccer unusable.
Therefore, we are adding a third Salah and changing the timing of second Salah slightly:
First Salah: 7:30
Second Salah: 8:45
Third Salah: 10:00
We encourage you Car pool as mush as possible and leave as soon as the khutbah is done so we can manage our parking
Please remember that in Eid, Salah comes before Khutbah and that it will start promptly as scheduled Insha Allah. So plan to come at least 20 minutes earlier to find parking and make it to the prayer area.
Prayer Location and Arrangements if No Rain
Men will pray in the outside basketball area while sisters in the gym. The first 15 rows in both places will be reserved for vaccinated people praying shoulder to shoulder and the remaining rows will maintain social distancing.
Prayer Location and Arrangements if Rain
Men will pray in the indoor gym and small men Mussallah while sisters upstairs. The first 15 rows in gym and sister area will be reserved for vaccinated people praying shoulder to shoulder and the remaining rows will maintain social distancing.
Masks and Your Own Prayer Rugs Required
Safety is a top priority and we urge you to follow our guidelines regardless of your vaccination status
Sweet Box will be given at the entrance.
Eid Picnic will be on Saturday July 31st
A small token of Eid celebration. The picnic will start at noon and end at 4 PM.
Lunch will be served at 2:30 pm Insha Allah.
Requesting Minimum $25 Per Family to Cover Eid Expenses,
There are many expenses that the Masjid incurs the day of Eid as well as the picnic. $25 per family will help cover that Insha Allah.
No Parking at Metcam Under Any Circumstance
Our next door business neighbor Metcam has been supporting us since we purchased the land. They allow us to use their parking in Ramadan evenings and when either Eid falls on weekend. This Eid being on Tuesday and being a workday for Metcam makes their parking lot not available to us. We must strictly enforce this rule and not allow any of our community members to park at Metcam.
Our Volunteers Sacrifice a Lot
Our volunteers, be it every Jumaa or Eid, sacrifice their time and energy to make sure we can all have smooth prayer arrangements. Not only we urge you to follow their instructions but recommend that you extend them a pleasant Jazakum Allah Khairan. Prophet Muhammad PBUH said: “He, who does not thank people, does not thank Allah”.
We need additional volunteers, so please come forward and reply to this email if you are willing to dedicate some of your time to help us manage the prayers. Please email us at email@example.com if you are interested in helping us out with any volunteer activities.
Eid Mubarak to all and see you Tuesday morning Insha Allah.
