Every year the Mosque faces an issue with accommodating all attendees during the third eid prayer (10am) – we simply do not have the space and capacity to fit everyone in who wishes to attend at this time.
Of course, we are overjoyed at the incredible numbers of Muslims to come together to attend the prayers and engage in worship, praise and remembrance of our Lord.
However, due to the number of people who try to attend the last prayer, we often find many people are not able to join the prayer as a result of insufficient space and therefore miss out on this rewardable act.
We are making a sincere appeal to encourage anyone who is able to, ideally students, couples without children, families with older children, or single brothers or sisters to please attend the 6am or 8am prayer to leave adequate space for families with young children attending the 10am prayer. We hope, in this way, that more people will be able to join our eid prayers on this joyous occasion and not miss out.
Finally, please be aware that the 8am prayer will be followed by a khutbah in Arabic only.
