EID ANNOUCEMENT

At Masjid Al-Furqan, we have decided, after consultation with the Scholars, that we recommend our community make their Eid salat at home. This is in line with the predominant view of our larger Metro Atlanta community and the logistical challenges that it presents with crowding, distancing, and socialization control, even if Eid salat were to be conducted in an outdoor setting. Scholars have also made it clear that the Eid Salat and Eid Khutbah is a Sunnah (not Fard) as there is precedence in our tradition about praying Eid salat at home. Our highest priority is the health and safety of the community and to not put them at any risk.

However, in order to keep the spirit of Eid, we are having a Drive-In Eid, InshaAllah. 

Let’s Celebrate Drive-In – Eid Al Fitr… event starts at 11AM (Either Saturday May 23rd or Sunday May 24th)
