The Islamic Circle of North America wishes you and your loved ones a blessed Eid Al-Adha!
In lieu of making a moon sighting decision to mark the beginning of this month, ICNA invites you to build a sense of unity amongst the Muslim community and celebrate Eid Al-Adha with your local Islamic centers and masaajid. As per the Saudi Central Hajj Committee, this year Hajj will be on Thursday, November 26.
We also encourage you to take advantage of these first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, of which the Messenger of Allah (S) said:
“There are no days more loved to Allah for you to worship Him therein than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting any day during it is equivalent to fasting one year and to offer Salatul Tahajjud [late-night prayer] during one of its nights is like performing the late night prayer on the Night of Power.” (Tirmidhi)
May Allah (SWT) accept our efforts in His way and allow us to reap the benefits of the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. May He (SWT) accept the Hajj of those brothers and sisters fortunate enough to embark on this unforgettable journey and allow us all to visit His beloved house in the years to come. Ameen. Eid Al-Adha Kareem!
