Eid-ul-Adha 2017

Eid-ul-Adha will be on Friday 1st September 2017 insha’Allah.

Eid jamaat will be at 830 AM (City Jami’ Masjid, M12 4DT).

Important dates:

– 8th Dhul Hijjah/Start of Hajj: Wednesday 30th August.

– Day of Arafah (Yawm ul Istighfar or Yawm ur Rahmah): Thursday 31st August

– Eid al-Adha / Yaum an-Nahr: Friday 1st September

The first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah are great in virtue and it is from the Sunnah to increase in worship and good deeds; especially fasting on the Day of Arafah.

Abu Qutadah (ra) reports that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasallam) was asked about fasting on the Day of Arafah. He said, β€œIt expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” (Muslim)
