NOTE: NWMI celebrates with the hajjis and holds salat and celebrations on the day after they stand at Arafat.

The takbirat will start at 9:45 am, with salat starting promptly at 10:00 am. The khutba (sermon) will be delivered in English by Brother Mahdi Gharavi, educator and co-founder of Oasis Educational Institute where he also serves as an instructor and speaker.

A description of how NWMI performs Eid salat can be found here.

After Salat we will have a potluck brunch followed by a children's program, where the children will enjoy hajj-themed carnival games, including a Jamaraat sling shot, ZamZam ring toss, and more!

NWMI will also be conducting a school supply drive for Syrian refugees in the area in conjunction with Mozaic, a local nonprofit organization. Please bring pencils, notebooks, erasers, or other school supplies to help fill the backpacks of children in need. 

VOLUNTEER: We rely on volunteers to help make Eid a success. Sign up here.

REGISTER: Please take a moment to let us know you're coming by registering for our Eid salat and children's carnival here. While the children’s carnival is free, you will need to register your child for him/her to participate in the carnival. There is a suggested donation of $10 to assist with the cost of the event.
