Eid Al Adha Prayer is Happening Tomorrow

Eid Al Adha is a celebration for Muslims all around the world. It is the most significant Eid of the two Eids and also includes many events and rituals that start even before the first day of Eid.

At the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, a vast prayer will be ongoing on the first day of Eid, which is happening tomorrow. It is a prayer that unites all of the Muslims in Winnipeg, and large swaths of people are present every Eid.

Moreover, the number of people attending the prayer has increased so much in the past years that they have had to carry out the Eid prayer three times during the morning hours to fit the enormous number of people into the centre’s capacity. The praying hours will be 7:00 am, 8:30 am, and 10:00 am.

When asked about his feelings about the prayer, a volunteer at the Eid Prayers said, “I’m delighted to be volunteering and helping all of my brothers and sisters get organized in the praying lines; I get very excited every Eid to be here to help and enjoy the Takbeerat, a heartwarming event that melts all of the ice built on my heart in between the two Eids.”

Eid Al Adha is an event that is awaited by all the Muslims in Winnipeg because before and after the prayer everyone gets to meet friends that they haven’t seen in a while, make new relationships, and give and take advice from different people. It is an event meant to unite the hearts of all Muslims worldwide, including in Canada and Winnipeg. 

“It is a prayer that I start to miss right after I’m done with it. It is a prayer that has an exceptional place in my heart and every Muslim’s heart,” said Nawal Attar, an attendee of the Eid prayer.

Eid prayer is an event that isn’t just about praying, it is an event that is about helping, caring, laughing, and enjoying. An event that is considered the most fabulous event among them all to the Muslim community.
