Eid Prayer 2018

According to Fiqh Council of America, Eid ul-Fitr will be on the 15th of June based on the statements below;

“The Astronomical New Moon is on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 19:43 Universal Time. On that day there is no place on earth where at sunset the elongation is 8 degrees and moon is 5 degrees above the sun. Therefore, Shawwal cannot start the next day. Hence, first day of Shawwal 1439 is on Friday, June 15, 2018, insha’Allah.”

EID prayer will be held on the 15th of June at Masjid Bilal.

Door opens at 8.00 am and prayer starts at 8.30 am.

In addition, if there is no moon sighting on the 14th of June, there will be a second Eid prayer arranged by a second group that determines Eid Fitr strictly based on visual sighting of the new moon.

We will be updating our website on the 14th of June with the details inshallah.
