O Allah, accept our prayers. O Allah, accept our fasting. O Allah, accept our standing in worship. O Allah, accept our bowing. O Allah, accept our prostration.
The NIA Masjid & Community Center would like to wish you and your family a happy and blessed Eid. NIA will celebrate Eid al-Fitr on Sunday June 25, 2017. Inshallah, the Eid Salah will begin promptly at 8:30AM in the Branch Brook Park at the Prudential Concert Grove. In the event of rain, we will move the festivities to the Branch Brook Park Roller Skating Rink. If you have not done so already, please pay your Zakat-ul-Fitr immediately as its payment is required before the Eid Salah.
“Allah’s Apostle enjoined the payment of one Sa’ of dates or one Sa’ of barley as Zakat-ul-Fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the Eid prayer.”
– Narrated by Ibn Umar [Bukhari Volume 2, Book 25, Number 579]
After the salah and khutbah, we will enjoy a day of socialization and community bonding with family, friends, and community. A usual NIA will provide a light breakfast and a light lunch. We strongly encourage everyone to bring their coolers, small picnic baskets with snacks, and gazebos or umbrellas for sun protection. To add to the festivities, we will once again provide a “carnival,” which will consists of several attractions, games, and concession stands. Regardless of your age, there will be an activity for you!
