InshaAllah, tomorrow is the first day of Dhul Hijjah, which means that the day of Arafat falls on Thursday, July 30th  and Eid el-Adha will fall on Friday, July 31st. Unfortunately eid festivities will not be held this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the unavailability of venues to hold such activities. However, beginning tonight at 9pm, the imam will be holding talks on Zoom to discuss the virtues of the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Please click here to join the Zoom meeting.

2020.05.29 masjid remains closed

posted May 29, 2020, 12:22 PM by Shereen El-Kadi   [ updated May 29, 2020, 12:45 PM ]

Asalamu alaikum dear brothers and sisters,
 
Insha’Allah this message finds you and your families in the best of health and the strongest of Iman. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone in our community, in our state, in our country, in the world in some shape or form. It has changed how we interact, how we learn. how we do anything from this point forward.

Our masjid has also been affected by this pandemic, and although is currently closed, preparations to responsibly reopen are underway in a manner consistent with the State and C&C of Honolulu supplemental emergency proclamations.

The MAH is working hard to open responsibly in order to ensure the health and safety of our worshipers consistent with all CDC and DOH guidelines, recommendations, as well as SEP mandates, including but not limited to physical distancing, sanitizing and contact tracing requirements. MAH is eager to open as soon as possible and will do so immediately after ensuring that all measures needed to comply with the law and with health recommendations are able to be implemented. We expect that there will be major changes including but not limited to a substantial reduction in number of prayer participants due to the mandatory 6ft distancing, temporary suspension of wudu area, prohibition of gathering before and after prayers, prohibition of hand-shaking while on masjid grounds, age restriction of participants, requirement of keeping masks on at all times and registration prior to prayers for contact tracing. 

We will post as soon as we have a firm reopening date.

We look forward to resuming our prayers at the masjid as soon as possible and to seeing you all.

Stay safe, take great care and have a blessed day!

2020.05.23 eid festivities not being held by the Muslim Association of Hawaii

posted May 24, 2020, 3:55 AM by Shereen El-Kadi

We have received notice with regards to an event currently planned for tomorrow. This event is NOT endorsed by the Muslim Association of Hawaii (MAH). As we understand it, this event is in violation of the City & County of Honolulu proclamation prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people, along with the current stay-at-home order. Keeping this proclamation in mind, MAH has not planned any eid festivities. While we are social creatures and miss one another, and we also want to be able to celebrate our eid and make our children happy, we also have a responsibility to represent Muslims positively as law-abiding citizens. Anyone attending such events is doing so at their own risk of violating the stay-at-home order.

2020.05.22 eid mubarak!

Eid mubarak! This year, Eid el-Fitr falls on Saturday, May 23, 2020.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we will not be holding congregational prayers or festivities.

If you pay after tonight it will no longer be considered Zakat el-Fitr. It will only be considered sadaqa.

2020.05.22 Eid update

posted May 22, 2020, 4:39 PM by Shereen El-Kadi   [ updated May 22, 2020, 4:58 PM ]

As-salamu alaikum dear brothers & sisters,

As we do every year, a few teams will be posted at different locations across the island with the task of sighting the moon. The state of Hawaii Muslim community has not yet declared when Eid will be, and we will wait, as we do every year, until we hear back from the sighting teams.

Hawai’i Muslims do not follow any country. Rather, we follow the sunnah of our beloved Prophet (SWS). Although it is a small chance, we have an opportunity to sight the moon.

So please disregard information transmitted by any unofficial individuals who follow other countries, as such behavior causes fitna and division within communities. We will provide an update as soon as we hear from the teams tasked with sighting of the moon. Of course, if we sight the moon tonight, Eid will be tomorrow. Otherwise, Eid will be Sunday. We will post the update after sunset, inshaAllah. Jazak Allah khair and may Allah accept your worship.
