Eid al-Adha 2018

Eid al-Adha 2018


The Saudi official moonsighting team have reported a positive moon sighting so please note the following dates:

1st Dhul Hijjah: Sunday 12th August

Day of Arafah: Monday 20th August

Eid al-Adha/Yaum an-Nahr: Tuesday 21st August

The first ten days of the month of Dhul Hijjah are great in virtue and it is from the Sunnah to increase in worship and good deeds; especially fasting on the Day of Arafah.

Abu Qutadah (RA) reports that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wasallam) was asked about fasting on the Day of Arafah. He said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” (Muslim)

May Allah accept the Hajj of all pilgrims and the efforts of all those at home.
