Performing Eid prayer at home:
Due to the ongoing lockdown, there will be NO Eid prayers at any of the Lehigh Valley masajid. We encourage everyone to pray at home with their own families or individually, observing all of the Sunnahs of Eid (taking a ghusl, wearing best garments, saying the takbeerat, etc). Here is a link to Imam Basheer explaining the fiqh of Eid prayer per the various schools of thought:
The Easton Phillipsburg Muslim Association (EPMA) is a non profit 501c(3) organization, serving religious, educational and social needs of the Muslim community in Easton, Phillipsburg and surrounding areas.
Alhamdulillah we have completed several projects in the masjid since the last fundraiser. These include the installation of a new roof, repaving both parking lots, conversion of boiler from oil to gas, Free Clinic renovations, and several other smaller projects. Aside from critical tasks like the repair of the bell-tower, we also replaced the floor in the upper hall. InshaAllah next we need to construct wudu are for sisters and remodeling the kitchen. We appreciate your continual support.
