Eid-ul-Fitr Prayer - Madinah - 1st Shawwal 1441/2020

Eid prayer, also known as Salat al-Eid is the special prayer offered to celebrate the two Islamic festivals, which is traditionally performed in an open space or field available for prayer. The two festivals when these prayers are conducted in large congregations are:

Eid al-Fitr, which is celebrated on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal after fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid al-Adha, which is celebrated on the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijjah after the Day of Arafah, the main day of the Hajj pilgrimage season.

During the eve of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, until just before the Eid Prayer, it is recommended to recite takbeerat (glorifyng God)
