    `Eid Al-Fitr festivities are set to return to Small Heath Park for 2023 in the annual event that has become the biggest `Eid gathering in Europe.

    Hosting the prayer, Birmingham mosque Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre (GLMCC) announced that it will be holding its annual `Eid Al-Fitr celebration in Small Heath Park this month after two years of disruption due to pandemic.

    Awaiting the moonsighting, Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre said they would host a huge `Eid celebration on either April 21 or 22.

    “There will be activities at Small Heath Park, including the regular Robert Wilkinson FunFair, for families to enjoy after prayers have concluded.

    “There will be a wet weather contingency for indoor prayers at Green Lane Masjid if the weather does not permit prayers to be held outside. Indoor prayers will run from 7am through to 10am. Further details will be provided closer to the time.”

    Two Prayers

    A separate prayer gathering will also be held at Edgbaston Stadium, as happened last year, officials later confirmed.

    “`Eid Al-Fitr is one of the two major annual celebrations for the Muslim community, where we come together to celebrate the end of Ramadan, after a whole month of fasting,” Mohammed Saeed, Chair of Trustees at Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre said.

    “Eid is a time for the community to worship together, be thankful and spend time with family.”

    Marking the end of Ramadan fasting, `Eid Al-Fitr is one the two main Islamic religious festivals along with `Eid Al-Adha.

    After special prayers to mark the day, festivities and merriment start with visits to the homes of friends and relatives.
