Karimia Institute was proud to have organised Eid in the Park for the residents of Nottingham, we performed Eid prayer on Friday 9th August 2013. Eid in the Park is a unique opportunity for you and your family to comfortably perform your Eid-ul-Fitr under the open skies of Nottingham in accordance with the traditional practice of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
The majority opinion of all four schools of Fiqh agree that it is better to pray the Eid prayers outside than within the mosque. “The practical Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was to leave his mosque for the Eid prayers and perform these prayers in the musalla that was at the outer gate of Medina” Zad al-Ma’ad, 1/441, Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah.
“Going out to the prayer-place for Eid prayer is Sunnah, even if the Jaami’ Mosque is large enough to accommodate them. This is the view of the majority of sheikhs and it is the correct view” Fatawa-e-Alamgiri / Fatawa-i-Hindiya , compiled by Shah Abdul Rahim (father of Shah Waliullah).
