Insha Allah, ALMA will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, tomorrow Thursday, 8th August 2013. We apologise for any inconvenience due to this late announcement as we had to wait for confirmation.
Arrangements have been made to conduct Eid prayers at Auburn Park (map) [corner of Macquarie Rd and Simpson St, Auburn 2144]. The programme is scheduled as follows:
7:30 AM - Thakbeer (click here to listen)
8:00 AM - Eid Prayers & Sermon

Just in case if it rains in the morning (around the scheduled prayer time), we have made arrangements to shift the venue to the following location.
Turkish Welfare Association Inc. Hall

Please note that if we are shifting to the venue, the scheduled programme will too will be shifted by 30 minutes; thus starting Thakbeer at 8:00AM. You may contact one of the following to confirm in the morning:
As you are aware Zakath-ul-Fitr is obligatory upon every Muslim to be paid before the Eid Prayers. If you have not paid it yet, please make sure to pay it before the prayers. ALMA is facilitating this through Human Appeal which will be distributed overseas. The cost per person is $10
A Sunnah act to on the Day of Eid
Narrated by Anas bin Malik
Allah's Apostle never proceeded (for the prayer) on the Day of 'Id-ul-Fitr unless he had eaten some dates. Anas also narrated: The Prophet used to eat odd number of dates. Shahih Bukhari; Volume 2, Book 15, Number 73
