Eid al-fitr will inshallah be Sunday, May 24, 2020. Roy Cooper the governor announced yesterday phase 2 opening will start on Friday 5 pm. This allows religious organizations to open but only 10 people inside and 20 people outside are allowed because of risk for Covid-19 infection. It is for this reason that IAENC will not have Eid Salat and we ask our Muslim community to pray in your homes with family.
There will be a drive thru Eid gift pick up for children from 12-2 pm on Sunday.
The fiqh council’s fatwa on eid salat during Covid-19 supports our decision.
We realize that this is hard for some members to accept but we need to follow the rules of the state and governor like everyone else is doing. We strongly request that NO PLANS be made to offer eid salat ON THE MASJID property.
The masjid will inshallah open for the 5 daily prayers on Tuesday, May 26, 2020 but there will be NO JUMMAH because no more than 10 people are allowed at one time right now. Please wear a mask, keep 6 ft apart and wash your hands. All of the carpets in the masjid will inshallah be professionally cleaned on Monday for everyone’s safety.
We wish everyone a very happy Eid Mubarak and make dua that the next Eid is celebrated under more normal circumstances.
