Prescribed Acts for the Day of Eid

Eid is approaching and we have therefore included this reminder of prescribed acts from the authentic Sunnah that should be done on the day of Eid:

  • Start the day with a bath, wear your best clothes and use perfume.
  • Recite takbir.
  • Eat something sweet prior to the Eid prayer.
  • The route to and from the Eid prayer should be different.
  • Arrive the Eid prayer early and listen carefully to the khutbah (sermon) after the Eid prayer.
  • Sacrificean animal that is affordable to you and distribute its meat.
  • Meet and greet others.

We hope Eid will be a day of joy and happiness to everyone, we should therefore welcome into our homes to those who are alone and without loved ones.Sharing food with those who are poor is also a great act of charity, as most families make more food than they can consume themselves. We hope parents create a positive and fun environment at home and arrange exciting activities for the children. Quality family time and creating new memories should always be a part of Eid.

The School wishes everyone a wonderful Eid-ul-Adha!
