Eid Prayer Services to be Held at Homes

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA to continue to make its mosques open for essential services only

While the COVID-19 pandemic persists, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr at individual homes.  All mosques of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA remain open for essential services, such as blood and food donations. 

During Ramadan, members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA strengthened their relationship with God by serving His people. Self-sacrifice, the core teaching embodied by fasting in this Holy Month, propelled members to serve their local communities during the COVID-19 pandemic through blood drives, food drives and delivery of hygiene kits to needy.  In addition, the Community held Virtual Interfaith Iftars to draw people together of different spiritual backgrounds. 

Earlier this year, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifa (Worldwide Head) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, instructed that while “observing precautionary measures...help whoever [you] can. To please Allah, it is essential that one takes care of His creation and most importantly, beseech Allah the Almighty’s mercy for their own sake and for the sake of mankind.”

To support Eid services around the country, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA has provided all its members with guidance and instruction on how to conduct and lead an Eid service from their homes. Though the Community is unable to open their mosques for Eid prayer, its members will reflect with gratitude on all that it has learned during this Ramadan through service to humanity.  The Community continues to offer essential services through its aid organization, Humanity First USA (usa.humanityfirst.org).

Portland Virtual Interfaith Iftar!

Thank you to all those who joined Portland's first ever live Virtual Interfaith Iftar that was held on Saturday, May 9th. If you missed it, you can still experience it through the above video.

Typically, we host Ramadan Open House Iftar dinners at the Portland Rizwan Mosque and were especially looking forward to doing so this year since this is Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA's centennial year as the first Muslim organization to hit the 100-year milestone in America. But we look forward to future gathering at our beautiful mosque after the city re-opens, God Willing.
