Eid Mubarak From Salam Ottawa

Eid Mubarak to all our listeners and visitors. May Allah Accept all our good deeds and accept us amongst the righteous.

Eid Mubarak

Here is a Letter from the Deputy Imam of the Main Mosque, Abdurrahman Al-Hijazi

AsSalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh,

Alhamdu lellah, it seems that this time all Muslims are going to celebrate Eid on the same day (Monday, Dec. 8, 2008). Indeed, this is a real blessing!

Well, I thought of listing the places I am aware of where we will have Eid prayers at, and also remind myself and everyone with the Etiquette of Eid.

About the Etiquette of Eid, I found the following link of a great interest: Please read it and distribute to all your beloved ones.

As for the Eid prayer plans, I know about the followings:

1) AsSalam Mosque, (2335 St. Laurent Blvd, Ottawa):

a) 1st prayer @ 8:00AM.
b) 2nd prayer @ 9:00AM. I will be giving this Khutbah in chaa Allah
c) 3rd prayer @ 10:00AM.

2) Ottawa civic center, Aberdeen Pavilion (1015 Bank Street, Ottawa):

a) 1st prayer @ 9:00AM.

3) Gatineau Mosque (4 Lois Street, Gatineau):

a) 1st prayer @ 9:00AM.

4) Nepean Sportsplex (1701 Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa):

a) 1st prayer @ 8:30AM.
b) 2nd prayer @ 9:30AM.

Eid Mubarak to everyone… May Allah accept from all of us. Amen.

Background Information
Islamic History Month Canada was launched in October 2007 to celebrate and enhance Muslims’ contributions to civilization, old and new, and inspire dialogue among all facets in the multicultural, multiethnic and multi-faith nation that Canada has become. The goals of IHMC are being achieved through a wide range of community and public events across Canada, such as exhibitions, lectures, film showings, awardpresentations and other complementary activities.

The IHMC Advisory Board includes senators, public figures, academics,inter-faith activists, Muslim community leaders and others.

In the words of IHMC’s Honorary Chair, Senator Mobina Jaffer:

“Canada’s national cultural heritage is the sum total of the wayCanadians from every background and every walk of life identify and express themselves. Islamic civilization does not belong only to MuslimCanadians, but to all Canadians. In fact, for more than 1,000 years
(about 600 AD through 1600 AD), Muslims made significant contributions to the well-being of humanity in numerous fields of endeavor. There are so many good stories to share and new learning to experience; we intend to do all that, and more, during Islamic History Month Canada.”

Ramadan 30? Moon sighting wars

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

HOST: GreenKufi (Omar)

When is Eid?
That is simple. Eid is the first day of Shawal, which is the month that follows Ramadan.

When does Shawal Start?
That’s easy. Shawal starts when the Crescent of the new moon is sighted.

What’s all this talk about calculation?
Just as we use calculations to determine the various times of the day that correspond to the time of prayer (i.e., dhuhr=noon time, which is at 12:54 – as in the schedule you see on the left), we can calculate when and where it is possible to see the crescent of the new month, so we can determine the likelihood of the beginning of the new month.

So when and where is it possible to sight the crescent of Eid/Shawal?
Another easy one. If you navigate your favourite web browser (i.e., firefox) to the following site: you will find a really nice diagram of where you can see the crecsent and when it will be visible. Go a head try it out. Ok, if you are shy I’ve included the image for teh visibility of the crecsent of Shawal bellow:

Here’s a head count of the different organization in North America and Ottawa for when Eid-ul-Fitr 1429 will be:

ISNA/FCNA: October 1, 2008

MAC: October 1st, 2008

OMA: September 30, 2008

Assunnah Muslim Association AMA (Dar As-sunnah): September 30, 2008

Centre islamique de l’Outaouais (CIO):
September 30, 2008

Jami Omar and Masjid Bilal: Wednesday October 1st OR Thursday October 2nd.

Why the Mess in the dates? Here’s the answer. It is simple really.

No sighting to our knowledge has been made anywhere in North America.

*For more on this, including the Fatawa of Saudi Scholars who say North American Muslims should not follow Saudi Arabia per se, please read this essay.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT Miss our special Eid Program Today (we’ll talk a bit about this crescent sighting business) and will have some awesome, brand new, fresh material never heard before. But you’ve got to tune in at 5 PM today at 93.1fm or click on “Listen Live” on the left.
Eid Mubarak?
