  Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And God heareth and knoweth all things. (2:256)

And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (which is Islam) and be not divided among yourselves.”

Islamic Center of Minnesota to Mark End of Ramadan with Prayers, Festivities

 

(FRIDLEY, MN, 6/24/17) ¬ On Sunday, June 25, Minnesota Muslims will celebrate the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan with communal prayers and celebrations.

 

The prayers mark the beginning of the Eid ul-Fitr (EED-al-FITTER), or “feast of fast breaking” holiday, in which Muslims exchange social visits and seek to strengthen family and community bonds. During this holiday, Muslims greet each other by saying “Eid mubarak” (EED-moo-BAR-ak), meaning “blessed Eid,” and “taqabbalallah ta’atakum,” or “may God accept your deeds.”

 

Eid ul-Fitr is the first of the two major Muslim holidays. The second holiday, Eid ul-Adha (EED-al-ODD-ha), comes near the end of the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca.

 

The Islamic Center of Minnesota (ICM) will hold Eid prayers at the National Sports Center in Blaine at 8:00am and 9:30am. A multicultural celebration will be held at the Islamic Center of Minnesota in Fridley from 10:00am-1:00pm.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY: Each year, Muslims come to the prayers in colorful attire representative of different areas of the Islamic world. The prayers themselves are quite visual, with worshipers arranged in neat rows and bowing in prayer in unison. Participants exchange embraces at the conclusion of the prayers.

 

NOTE: Because the prayer session is a religious service, reporters and photographers of both sexes should dress modestly. Some communities may ask female reporters and photographers to put a scarf over their hair while in the actual prayer area. Photographers should arrive early to get into position for the best shots. Photographers are also advised not to step directly in front of worshipers and to seek permission for close-up shots. Shots of shoes removed for prayer, and rear-angle shots of prostrating worshipers are considered inappropriate.

 

The ICM is one of the oldest Islamic organizations in the state. It serves the community by providing Islamic education to children and adults; speakers on basic Islamic practices and world affairs; a food shelf; funeral services; book publishing; youth activities; marriage licenses; counseling services; Arabic classes; daily, Friday, Eid, and Ramadan prayer services; and is home to one of the longest running interfaith dialogues in the nation.
