Islamic Institute of Toronto (IIT), Toronto: Eid ul Adha salat schedule - Fri. Nov. 27, 2009

Eid mubarak

Eid prayer: 9:00 am, Friday November 27
Khateeb: Shaikh Ahmad Kutty

The Saudi Supreme Court has announced that November 18 is the first day of Dhul-Hijjah. Accordingly, the day of Arafat (the ninth of Dhul-Hijjah) falls on Thursday November 26. Eid Al-Adha is therefore on Friday November 27.

The IIT's observance of eid is determined by the day of Arafat (when the pilgrims on hajj gather in the plain of Arafat) and is in accordance with the position of the Fiqh Council of North America, ISNA, and other organisations. For more information please refer to the Fiqh Council's statement.

Some suggestions for eid:
  • arrive early to avoid parking issues (and carpool if possible)
  • make wudhu before leaving home
  • recite takbiraat on your way to the mosque and on your way home
  • bring a dish of sweets or finger food to share with others
Fasting is especially mentioned as a most meritorious act of devotion to be performed in the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah; this is true of those who are not performing Hajj. According to some traditions, by fasting these days, one is accorded a tremendous opportunity to gain repentance and forgiveness. If, however, a person cannot afford to fast all nine days, he may at least fast the ninth day of Dhul-Hijjah, which is known as the Day of `Arafah. However, it is also worth mentioning that while fasting the first nine days of Dhul-Hijjah is recommended, it is forbidden to fast during the days of the `Eid. This prohibition is not limited to the tenth of Dhul-Hijjah; rather it extends also to the eleventh, twelfth, and thirteenth, for all of these are days of festivities and celebrations.
