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 Tuesday June 4th, 2019. 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. 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 breakfast and lunch. We strongly encourage everyone to bring sweaters/jackets, 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!
If you require a letter of absence for school or work, please contact Sister Summayyah at 973 482 8996
