Campaign: Bolton 'Eidgâh / Musallâ 'Eid al-Adh-Hâ 1435

Bolton 'Eidgâh / Musallâ - Revive the Sunnah to fulfil a forgotten Sunnah

On 'Eid al-Fitr 1435 (Monday 28th July 2014), we witnessed a momentous occasion for the people of Bolton. After many years, we were blessed with the first 'Eidgâh/Musallâ ('Eid performed outside on open ground) in Bolton. Inshâ-Allâh, this will be the first of many. After this great success where hundreds attended (with the Tawfiq of Allâh), let us make an effort again to continue this blessed Sunnah.

Sayyidunâ Abû Sa'îd al-Khudrî RadhiyAllâhu 'anh says: "The Messenger of Allâh SallAllâhu 'alayhi wasallam would go out on the Day of Fitr and Adh-Hâ to the Musallâ ('Eidgâh)." [1]

Once more, we should remind ourselves and others that praying 'Eid Salâh in the musallâ (an outdoor place of prayer) is an emphasised Sunnah. For more information on why we should pray at the musallâ (and not in the Masjid), please see Eid Salâh at the Musallâ: A Forgotten Sunnah.

With a view to fulfilling and reviving this Sunnah, alhamdulillâh, a musallâ has once again been arranged in Bolton at the same venue. The people of Bolton have the opportunity to gain a tremendous reward by fulfilling this Sunnah.

VENUE: Deane & Derby Cricket Club, Sunnyside Park, Chelsea Road, Bolton, BL3 3BA
DATE: Saturday 4th October 2014
7:15am: Speech
7:45am: Salâh and Khutbah

Here are a few ways in which you could help.


Please make du'â for the continued success of the Musallâ ('Eidgâh) and to keep us steadfast upon the Sunnah.


To arrange the Musallâ does not come without some costs, e.g. an all-weather Marquee to protect against the elements (double the size from last time), speaker/PA system and council fees. You can donate in a number of ways:

  • Donate quickly and securely on our dedicated 'Eid Musallâ page on BT MyDonate. All proceeds (100% including Gift Aid) will go towards the Musallâ costs. Alternative methods of payment are available on our donate page.
  • Gather money from friends and family and pass on the raised amount to the 'Eid Musallâ organisers.
  • Donate on the day in one of the bright orange buckets.

Raise awareness

Please help spread the word! Share with (via social media or word of mouth) and encourage all your contacts, friends, relatives and acquaintances. Make sure they don't miss out. Don't be shy to bring it up in conversation.

JazâkAllâhu khayran for your support.
