Established in 2007 1Eid is the most culturally cohesive and multi-generational celebration for all to attend and enjoy the festival of Eid. The word ‘Eid’ meaning ‘to feast’ traditionally was celebrated with the whole community regardless of faith. The aim of Eid was to come together and celebrate the fabric of humanity, happiness, harmony and respect for all.
By the Grace of God, 1Eid™ has successfully Pioneered the revival of Eid whereby the Muslim community is able to share their festival with the wider community and celebrate together in a pool of diversity, dispelling any and all avenues for prejudice.
♥ Our Vision
We believe that people should get to know one another to achieve peace and unity.
♥ Our Mission
We will strengthen and unite local communities by reviving, celebrating and sharing the essence of Eid.
Who are you?
We don't have donors, we have patreons. Eid belongs to all of us. It is not like other charities nor a business. Eid will be what we make of it. Most beloved act of charity is a small but consistent one. Set up your monthly sadaqa now and forget about it until you meet your Lord. Let Him remind you of it.
Leave the Mosque?
At the time of the Prophet SAW, when it came to Eid the Prophet used to take his congregation out away from the mosque to an open area in a place where the whole community could gather and listen to the khutba. Obviously in today’s day and age the Mosques cannot cope with the demand for Jummah Salah let alone Eid Salah. On top of that the majority of Mosques do not cater to women and we have more women than men in our Ummah. The severity of the situation is mostly belittled and this Sunnah must be revived.
“O you who believe! Answer Allaah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life” [al-Anfaal 8:24]
Leave the women?
Or we can empower women through the Eid prayer in obedience to the Sunnah where we were commanded to include all of them to the Eid festival.
Sahih Bukhari Hadith no: 88
Narrated / Authority Of: Um-Atiya
We used to be ordered to come out on the Day of Eid and even bring out the virgin girls from their houses and menstruating women so that they might stand behind the men and say Takbir along with them and invoke Allah along with them and hope for the blessings of that day and for purification from sins.
“Every nation has its festival and these are yours!”
One of the main points that the 1Eid project is trying to revive is the status of Eid in the eyes of Muslim children. Unfortunately, due to our lack of adherence to the Sunnah Eid has become a boring chore in the eyes of many children, they hunger for fun but instead are dragged around visiting family and not doing anything engaging, stimulating or constructive. Their eyes, therefore, turn towards haram and harmful celebrations misleading them into evil places, actions and environments.
Ad-dawah is fardh!
Share the essence of Eid with the community [Da’wah]
• Introduce fun, food and culture to local communities
• Establish Eid as a national celebration for all
