رَبَّنا وَاجعَلنا مُسلِمَينِ لَكَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِنا أُمَّةً مُسلِمَةً لَكَ وَأَرِنا مَناسِكَنا وَتُب عَلَينا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ التَّوّابُ الرَّحيمُ
‘Our Lord, make us submissive to You, and [raise] from our progeny a nation submissive to You, and show us our holy rites, and turn to us clemently. You are the All-clement, the All-merciful.'
- Qur'an 2:128

Dear community members, Assalam alaykum.

With the grace of Allah, Eid al-Adha this year will be on Wednesday, August 22, 2018. This blessed day commemorates the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (a) and his family and their total submission to the cause of monotheism. It is customary for believers to perform a sacrifice (qurbani) in emulation of this noble practice. For those who are not performing hajj, this sacrifice is highly recommended but not obligatory.

The Day of `Arafah, which is the day before Eid, will fall on Tuesday, August 21, 2018. The Day of `Arafah is a special day of prayer and worship.
