Eid Prayers

The Eid prayer times for this year will be updated during the sacred months of Ramadan for Eid ul-Fitr and Dhul-Hijjah for Eid ul-Adha.

The Eid in Bedford committee do not organise any Eid prayers in Bedford. Please contact your local Mosque’s for more information.

  1. Eid ul-Fitr, the breaking of the Ramadan fast. This comes upon the completion of the month of Ramadan, which is the third pillar of Islam. When the Muslims have finished fasting the month that is enjoined upon them, Allah has prescribed that they should follow the completion of their fast with a festival on which they gather to thank Allah, remember Him and glorify Him for His guidance. On that Eid it is prescribed for them to pray and give charity.
  2. The second Eid is Eid ul-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), which is the tenth day of the month of Dhu’l-Hijjah. This is the greater and better of the two feasts, which comes after the completion of the Hajj, for when the Muslims complete their Hajj they are forgiven.
