Last Friday was the Eid Prayer. As you remember, we’ve been attending our little mosque’s Eid Prayer for several years and each year it the attendance keeps getting larger and larger. Why? Well, I think that the community likes to pray behind our Imam. I also think that they like to pray outside. I think that our youth group does a really great job of organizing the event, from parking attendants to entertainment and the food.
This year, the youth, in cooperation with the Imams of 5 of our mosques, organized 1 huge Unified Prayer Event. It was a beautiful thing to be able to pray with all of our friends. The khutba was in English first and Arabic second. There was more than enough room for everyone. We had a parking shuttle, a photo booth and food trucks! I took many pictures, and even a video of the prayer so I could show you. I’m having a difficult time uploading it though, since it is 8 minutes long. If anyone has advise on how to upload a video that size, please share.
