In the name of Allaah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
It is the Sunnah of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi wa sallam) and his virtuous Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) to pray the Eid Prayers in a Musallah (an outdoor Prayer Area) and not inside the Masjid.
Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree (may Allaah be pleased with him) said, “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to go out to the Musallah (outdoor Prayer area) on the day of al-Fitr and al-Adha. The first thing that he did was to pray, then he would move away and stand facing the people, when the people were (still) sitting in their rows, and he would exhort them and advise them and issue commands to them. If he wanted to dispatch an army he would do so, and if he wanted to issue some commands, he would do so; then he would leave.” [al-Bukhaaree & Muslim]
Therefore in accordance to the prophetic sunnah the Luton Islamic Centre will be holding Eid Prayer at Wardown Park Cricket Pitch, New Bedford Road, opposite Montrose Avenue roundabout.
