Celebrate the completion of the holy month at NWMI’s 10th Eid al-Fitr celebration. We’ve put together our best program yet!


Takbirat will start at 9:45am, with salat starting promptly at 10:00am. The khutba (sermon) will be delivered in English. To commemorate our 10-year anniversary, Basil Eldadah, co-founder and board member of NWMI and our inaugural khateeb, will reprise his role as this year's khateeb. 

complimentary offerings

Brunch | Enjoy delicious and diverse food offerings, including pancakes, eggs, sliders, wraps, wings, donuts, pizza, and more!

In light of the unusual circumstances surrounding the expected sighting of the moon this year, NWMI will be celebrating Eid on Wednesday, June 5th. If you would like to know more about the rationale for this date, please click here. A description of how NWMI performs Eid Salat can be found here.


This event is successful because of your support! We welcome you to join us as a volunteer.  There are lots of ways to participate on Eid, so please choose what works best for you and your family.
