1430 â€˜Eid al Fitr, Sept. 20 2009
Some people began fasting Friday rather than Saturday, for example people in Turkey and Albania began fasting Friday, and many Lebanese Shiâ€™a began fastin Friday.
Nevertheless, likely nearly all local mosques will be celebrating â€˜Eid on Sunday.
The Bloomfield Muslim Unity Center is also among those mosques, and they have announced â€˜eid will be Sunday the 20th.
Expecting overcrowding, the BMUC has arranged a shuttle back and forth from 9am – 2pm from overflow parking at the Forest Lake Country Club at 1401 Club Dr. (close to BMUC).
BMUC will hold two â€˜eid prayers, at 8 and at 10. There will be an â€˜eid breakfast after the second prayer service at 11AM, $10 per person for members and $12/person for non members, $15 at the door, with children 5 years and under free.
