What to do on Eid?

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of prayers for the public at Madina Mosque Trust, Clapton, London, we would like to advise the following for the blessed day of Eid.

General Advice for Eid

Eid is a great blessing of Allah Almighty. It is therefore important to adopt the Sunnah practices of Eid even if one does not perform Eid Ṣalāh, expressing his gratitude to Allah Almighty and marking the occasion of happiness and joy. Some of the etiquettes of Eid that should be adopted during the lock down include:

1. Performing Fajr Ṣalāh in congregation at home.
2. Undertaking Ghusl (bath) before Eid Ṣalāh (or the Nafl Ṣalāh) and using the Miswak.
3. Applying itr (perfume).
4. Wearing the best clothes available, it is not necessary to go shopping to purchase new clothes.
5. Eating dates or something sweet before Eid Ṣalāh (or the Nafl Ṣalāh).
6. Reciting Takbīr in abundance.
7. Congratulating others in person and over the phone by saying تقبل الله منا ومنكم (may Allaah accept [the worship] from us and you) (al-Tārīkh al-Kabīr, 1:116; al-Thiqāt, 9:90; al-Duʿāʾ, p.288; al-Sunan al-Kubrā, 3:446).
8. Donating charity and keeping the poor and vulnerable in mind.
