Assalamu Alaikum brothers and sisters,
Eid Al Adha prayers at the Islamic Center of Naples.
Eid al Adha 1441, will be on Friday, 07/31/2020, Insha Allah.
We are planning two Eid prayers. The first one to start at 7:30 am and the second one at 8:30 am. With social distancing and all the CDC guidelines still in place, we can only accommodate 60 brothers and 15 sisters in each session. Kids under 14 still should not attend.
The first session starts at 7:30 am and ends at 7:55 am. The second session will start at 8:30 am and ends at 8:55 am. If our parking lot is full, please park at the Mayflower Church which is across the street from us. We have obtained their permission for this request.
To allow for proper social distancing, only 60 brothers and 15 sisters can be accommodated inside the masjid. First come, first seated. Those who arrive after the masjid reaches 75 people capacity will have to wait in their cars until the second Eid prayers start. No exceptions will be made due to Covid19.
Volunteers will be available to assist with traffic and entrance monitoring to the masjid including temperature check. We ask you to please respect their guidance and directions.
It is incumbent on the community to adhere to the guidelines to the best of our ability — for the benefit of each other more than our selves. Out of respect and trust that we have for each other we expect you to follow these guidelines:
- We will conduct a temperature check upon your arrival.
- Please make sure you wear your face mask during your stay inside the masjid. One free mask will be provided if you don’t have one.
- Please bring your prayer rug.
- Use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting the masjid.
- Come in with wudu. It is not recommended to make wudu at the masjid.
- Perform prayers in areas marked to maintain social distancing guidelines
Upon completion of your Eid prayers, please depart. No hugging or shaking hands due to Covid19 concerns.
No breakfast is planned for this day.
Also, a family is preparing an Eid gift bag for our kids. Alhamdulillah. These gift bags will be distributed via a drive-through process from 9:15 am to 10:15 am. Make Dua for this family for their generosity, kindness, and willingness to make this extra effort.
We appreciate your cooperation and support as we hold this special event safely and responsibly. Insha Allah.
