Eid Prayer

Eid is a major festival celebrated by Muslims worldwide twice a year, known as Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

The Eid service in a mosque usually begins with a congregational prayer known as the Eid prayer, which is performed shortly after sunrise. Muslims gather at the mosque or in an open area, such as a park or field, to perform the prayer together. The prayer is led by an Imam, who delivers a sermon or khutbah along with the prayer.

The khutbah typically includes a message of unity, brotherhood, and the importance of serving Allah and the community. It may also include reminders about the significance of the Eid festival and its historical and religious importance.

After the Eid prayer and khutbah, Muslims usually exchange greetings and well-wishes with one another, embrace and share gifts, and enjoy a festive meal or breakfast together. The Eid service in the mosque is an essential part of the Eid celebration and is an occasion for Muslims to come together to pray, reflect, and celebrate.
