Ramadan 2017 / 1438h

Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Sunday, June 25, 2017

The crescent of the new moon has been sighted per our reference guidelines. Families should break their fast on Sunday and begin festivities and celebration. IAR reserves Eid facilities 3 years in advance with an aim to accommodate one large prayer; however, due to logistical constraints stemming from weather and limited availability due to July 4, we will pray in multiple shifts at our beloved Islamic Center of Raleigh masjid.

Doors for Eid Prayer will open and gathering begins at 6:00am for prayer at 7:00am sharp; at 8:00am for a prayer at 9:00am sharp; and at 10:00am for prayer at 11:00am sharp. Please arrive early and follow the direction of law enforcement and IAR Security staff.

Zakaat-ul-Fitr is $11 per person in your household and must be given before the Eid Prayer. We will collect Zakat-ul-Fitr during the remaining time of Ramadan and until the beginning of the prayer. Donate on our website, by texting 'iarzakat' to 50155, or in the boxes at the masjid or before prayer.

May Allah accept our fasting and worship, and Eid Mubarak to you and yours.
