Assalamu alaikum brothers & sisters in Islam,
As we near the end of this blessed month of Ramadan and prepare to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, we are again reminded of the impact the current pandemic continues to have on the activities we have become accustomed to throughout our lives. Although the NYS restrictions have just recently been modified to allow for religious services of a maximum of ten people, including an Imam, gatherings such as Eid Salaah will still not be permissible by law, as hundreds of our community members would be in attendance.
Similar to our request regarding Jummah Salaah, we ask that you pray Eid Salaah at home as well. Please make use of the directions below, on the conditions and steps for performing this Salaah at home with your family members.
Conditions required to perform Eid Salaah:
Eid Salaah can be performed with a minimum of 4 male adults including the Imam, with 6 extra Takbeers and Khutbah.
If the minimum is not met, one may perform 2 or 4 Rakaats of Duha (Chasht) individually without extra Takbeers or Khutbah (between Ishraq & Zawal time).
Female family members and children can also join.
May Allah Taala protect one and all, Aameen.
