Eid & Friday Prayers Outside Tomorrow

Eid Mubarak!

Dar us Salaam in College Park and the Prince George’s Muslim Association in Lanham have come together in a spirit of unity and mutual cooperation to enliven the sunnah of having the eid prayer outside in Watkins Regional Park on Friday at 10AM. No more squeezing into all corners of the masjid including the hallways or jockeying for a prime prayer spot in the musallah.

In sha Allah, the Friday prayers will also be held at the park and there will be lots of food and activities for all ages. After the eid prayer, some are going to IHOP in College Park for a community brunch. And there may be house-hopping afterward.

May Allah accept our fast in this month of Ramadan, and our standing in prayer, and our dua, and our good deeds, and forgive our sins, and enter us into paradise and save us from the hellfire. Ameen.

  1. Ameen! Ma’assalama ya Shahrul Ramadan, you will be missed. I liked that gem you posted last Ramadan, whoever worships Ramadan then know that Ramadan is gone and whoever worships Allah know that Allah is Al-Hayyu la yamutuh! Allahu Akbar wa lillahi hamd.

    See you tomorrow inshaAllah! Don’t forget the frisbee, even though it will be a lil chilly outside.

  2. Asalamu alaykum,

    In sha Allah, I’ll bring your frisbee but I might not be able to play, I’ve come down pretty hard with something today and I’m super sick, medicated, and just hoping and praying I’ll be well by tomorrow. I’m actually going to the store in a bit to pick up another medication. Make dua for me.

    May Allah accept it from us and from you. Ameen. I miss Ramadan already.

    On a side note: Tonight, I brought in Kalimah, my bonsai, from outside, she has been living outside since last spring but now she’ll probably live inside until next spring in sha Allah.

  3. Ameen to your du’a. If your not up for the frisbee, then you can bring the UNO cards!!! requires no extra movement just skillzzzz

    InshaAllah I’ll be in your area.. do you need anything?? Orange Juice, tissues anything? Just let me know!!

  4. Asalamu alaykum Jammy Jam,

    Dua, tissues, hot tea, orange juice, chicken noodle soup, talbina, and a warm sweater all sound good to me right now.

    Update: Took care of most of the the list except for dua because I can always use more, hot tea, and talbina.

  5. Make dua for Jams, she went out late last night to bring me some items on the list.

    May Allah reward everyone for their duas, alhamdulillah, I woke up feeling much better this morning.

  6. Eid Mubarak, may Allah accept of us. Eid prayers outside! how fun! Houston decided to stick to ISNA guidelines and so we will be praying on Saturday! then again that leaves me all confused about today, to fast or not to fast? Seriously, its all too much, can’t we all just get along, then i dont have to be so confused 😦

    May Allah grant you a speedy recovery and good health — Ameen

  7. Alhamdulillah, no frisbee or UNO…I propose that you keep that frisbee with you until we can actually play with it inshaAllah!

    SubhanAllah I didn’t know you were sick, were you feeling OK today or were you just hiding your sickness? Sorry MA, I feel bad now, I would have brought you somethings as well bi’ithnillah.

    btw, whats Talbina?

  8. Samira: Eid Mubarak, I love Islam and the valid differences of opinion only increase my love of this religion. It still boggles my mind and makers my eyes moisten when I’m praying in congregation or in a large group of Muslims and I think that all of these people say and believe in the same shahadah as I do.

    Amatullah: Alhamdulillah, yesterday I was feeling miserable but I woke up feeling much better, not 100% but so much better than yesterday. I brought the frisbee but it never made it out of my bag, Umm Aziza had UNO and Scrabble but the food and conversation was too good so we never opened them. In sha Allah, next time.

  9. Amatullah: You should ask my former housemate about at-talbina, I learned about it from her.

    From the Miraculous Prophetic Medicine:

    Narrated ‘Ursa: Aisha used to recommend At-Talbina for the sick and for such a person as grieved over a dead person. She used to say, “I heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, ‘At-Talbina gives rest to the heart of the patient and makes it active and relieves some of his sorrow and grief.’ ” [Bukhari]

    At-Talbina is a porridge made from barley flour and bran, milk, and honey.
