Eid Salat & Celebrations

Benevolence brings together the Muslim and wider community to foster social harmony, cohesion and connectedness.

There are two holy days of celebration in Islam: Eid-al-Fitr at the conclusion of Ramadan - the month of fasting, and Eid-al-Adha, which marks the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage for Muslims. These blessed days commence with the congregational Eid salat (prayer), followed by festivities throughout the day, and are celebrated by Muslims worldwide.

Benevolence's Eid Salat & Celebrations brings together its diverse community of Muslims and converts for a day of festivities and fun. We warmly invite you, your family and friends, to enjoy this blessed day with us - celebrate Eid with Benevolence!


Eid-al-Fitr falls on the first day Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic lunar  calendar. It is celebrated at the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting for Muslims from dawn to sunset. An obligatory amount of charity, zakat-al-fitr, is required to be paid to the poor and needy before the Eid salat, which is performed differently to the ritual five daily prayers.


Eid-al-Adha, the festival of sacrifice, falls on the tenth day of the Islamic month Dhul Hijjah, being two months and ten days after Eid-al-Fitr. This day of remembrance commemorates Prophet Ibrahim's submission to God's command over his personal love for his family. Muslims who can afford to do so are required to perform a similar sacrifice in the form of offering udhiyah.
