Eid Al-Fitr Announcement 2017

Assalaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh,

As we are approaching the end of Ramadaan, the UQ Muslim Chaplain and MSAUQ would like to take this opportunity to thank Allah and then all our imams, volunteers and sponsors who made this Ramadaan really special.

Alhamdu lillah by the grace of Allah and then generous contributions from the UQ Muslim community we were able to provide iftaar every day in Ramadaan. We ask Allah to reward and bless all the volunteers and sponsors.

Taraweeh prayers were held every night and in the last 10 nights of Ramadaan we have been fortunate enough to have Tahajjud prayers as well. A big thank you to our imams for their efforts, Jazaahum Allahu khairan!

As the Eid is approaching quickly, please take note of the following important Eid announcements.

EID in QLD is either on Monday 26th June or Tuesday 27th June based on moon sighting announcement of Council of Imams Queensland (CIQ).
