Eid ul Fitr will be on Monday, July 28th

The new moon of the month of Shawal will be born on Saturday, July 26 in the western hemisphere but the moon will set before the sunset on that day everywhere in the western hemisphere, preventing its sighting that evening. Therefore In accordance with our policy that any reported sighting of the new crescent would be rejected based on the scientific fact of the moon setting before the sunset everywhere in the western hemisphere, we will complete 30 days of Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr will be on Monday, July 28th

Eid prayer will be held in the Exposition Center at the State Fairgrounds. There will be two shifts of Eid prayer.

The first shift gathering will begin at 7:00 AM and the prayer will begin at 8:00 AM sharp. Prayer led by Sh. Shaaban Sadek, Khutbah by Br. Motaz El-shafi, Title "Reconnecting with Allah".

The second shift gathering will begin at 9:00 AM and the prayer will begin at 10:00 AM sharp. Prayer led by Sh. Shaaban Sadek, Khutbah by Br. Nouman Siddiqui, Title "Reconnecting with Allah".

Zakat-ul-Fitr is $11 per person and is due before Eid Prayer. For your convenience, IAR collects and distributes Zakat ul Fitr. You may use our online option, cash or checks via donation box using marked envelopes or through a special drive in the last days of Ramadan.

To support this growth in the most effective manner possible, the IAR Shura, in collaboration with the ICM management team, has decided to transition the ICM's operations to a separate set up.
