Eid Mubarak!

Friday, May 22, 2020 11:34 pm

Based on confirmation of multiple sightings, Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta and Masjid Omar bin Abdul Aziz declare Eid-ul-Fitr for Saturday, May 23, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, we encourage all community members to pray home with the below guidance.

A Message from Our Imam's: 
Assalamu Alaikum & Eid Mubarak to all brothers and sisters.

We would like to clarify our position regarding sighting the new moon. It has been our practice to follow global moonsighting since decades. We consider it the most correct method. This is also the mainstream view by classical jurists from the Hanafi, Maliki and Hanbali jurisprudence. Our declaration of Eidul Fitr for today, Saturday, May 23, 2020, is based on our practice. We received the confirmation and the Shahadah of multiple sightings in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Gambia and Tanzania. Besides us, some other organizations and Masajid of North America have declared Eidul Fitr for today. We understand that other organizations were not able to verify the sightings and was not scientifically possible to sight the moon. We give preference to testimony (Shahadah) over astronomy. Please note that we have completed 29 days of fasting which completes the month according to the Hadith of Prophet of Allah (s). He (s) said: “"The month is of 29 days and if the sky is overcast, then complete thirty days." So, either we fast for 29 days and have Eid or complete 30 days, we are within the boundaries of Shariah. There is no need to debate about it. Masha Allah, our Deen is beautiful and has the solution for every problem.

Regardless of when one chooses to celebrate Eid, we must respect and love each other. May Allah (S) accept our fasting, Ibadaat and all the good deeds. Ameen!

Imam Muhammad Sajid and Imam Afsar Ali
Al-Farooq Masjid and Masjid Omar Bin Abdul Aziz
