Asalaamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,
We are delighted to announce that the crescent moon of Shawwal was sighted this evening locally; therefore, Eid al-Fitr will be observed on Friday, April 21 and will be prayed in the Masjid. Takbeerat will begin at 8:30 AM, and prayer will begin promptly at 9:00 AM followed by the khutba. After the program refreshments will be served.
Please be advised that parking will be limited; therefore, it is our strong recommendation that you carpool as able. Overflow parking will be available at the SDA Church on Manoa road and is a 4 minute walk from the Masjid.
Additional parking is available at Manoa Valley District Park. A group of brothers have generously offered to shuttle people in their minivans from the park to the Masjid between 8:00 AM to 8:45 AM. They have informed us that they will have an “Eid Mubarak” placard on their windshield for identification. May Allah (SWT) reward their kind generosity.
As previously announced, we will continue our Eid celebration on Sunday, April 23 at Keehi Lagoon Memorial Burns Hall starting at 8:30 AM. The family-friendly festivities will include games, activities, gifts, bounce castles, and concessions. We strongly encourage parents to bring their children so they may experience the joyous occasion of Eid with other children. Lunch will be served promptly at 11:30 AM. The program will conclude following Dhuhr prayer at 1:00 PM.
We wish you and your loved ones a most blessed Eid and look forward to celebrating the occasion with you all.
Jazaakom Allah Kheir,
MAH Executive Committee
