As the month of Ramadan is coming to an end, we will be celebrating Eid ul-Fitr at the Islamic Center at NYU on Friday, July 17th with prayers and a brunch. The IC is following the opinion of the Fiqh Council of North America and the Islamic Society of North America.
We are asking that everyone please RSVP to ensure a place at our services and to help us plan better. To RSVP, please visit HERE.
Eid Prayers will begin at 9:30am and will be followed by a community brunch at 10:30 am. Guests will be allowed to arrive from 9:00 amonwards. A second prayer time might be added should the need arise.
All services will be held in the Grand Hall on the 5th Floor in GCASL, 238 Thompson Street, NY, NY 10012.

If you have not yet made a contribution to the IC this Ramadan please do so by visiting HERE. Our programs, including this one, are run completely on donations and, as such, we rely heavily on the generosity of the community to provide the services that we do.
The IC will be collecting Zakatul Fitr in the morning prior to theEid prayer IN CASH ONLY and will ensure that it is distributed properly inshallah to those in need in the community. Zakat ul Fitr is a form of charity that is unique to the month of Ramadan and should be paid before the Eid Prayer commences inshallah.
Ibn `Abbas has said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) enjoined Zakat-ul-Fitr so that those who fast are purified of their sins and the poor and needy people are enabled to arrange for their basic needs of food, clothing etc. Therefore, the Sadaqah (charity) of the person who gives before the `Eid prayer is the real Sadaqah, but if someone delays and gives it afterwards, his charity will be an ordinary one.”
We are calculating the Zakat ul Fitr to be about $10 per person and should be given on your own behalf as well as on behalf of your individual family members inshallah.
