2 Eids

18 12 2008

After Ramadan, there were some Eid festivities at Dar Al-Noor and at Six Flags.  There are also pictures from the more recent Eid that just passed, or rather from the DC Green Muslims Dinner #6, which was 2 days before Eid.   I also got a roll of film developed that had pictures in it from the summer, I threw in some of those shots as well 🙂

We were at the mosque for an Eid BBQ.  Tayeeb was chilling after waiting in line for half an hour to get food.

Ali was hanging out at a Halloween bash down in Richmond.  Guess who he’s dressed as?  (Hint: read the caption)

Mufti came down to visit for the Eid BBQ.  The smoke behind her is from the grills, this isn’t a protest or anything.  Just burgers and hot dogs.

This was at the Butler Center in DC, during the DC Green Muslims Dinner #6.  The room got so packed that some of us had to sit on the stairs in the hallway to eat dinner.  Sarwar was chillin on the steps afterwards.

Later on in the evening, everyone was mingling and networking.  I should mention, I took these pictures using NJ‘s camera.  She edited them and added the color effect, so she should def get credit.

This was from a program at the Islamic Study Center in Charlottesville.  Sheikh Ninowy was visiting and delivered an excellent presentation to a packed house.

Ibrahim stood up to give a presentation towards the end of the program and captured the full attention of the entire audience.

Arafat was dressed up as a prisoner, next to Shakeeb who came dressed as Obama.  Here, they’re both teamed up in a game of foosball against two others.

Sheikh Ninowy receives some guidance about the program from Shaykh Nooruddeen during the lunch break.  This program at the Islamic Study Center was focused on learning from The Book Of Wisdom by Ibn Ata Illah.

Six Flags hosted the Muslim Family Day, in celebration of Eid.  The park opened early and had a special section set aside with Halal food vendors and prayer areas.  All in all, it was a fun day.  I went with my cousins and had a great time, would def recommend something like this in the future.

 

Life Coaching?

Life Coaching?

Tariq (right) speaks with Esa after the Green Dinner.  Tariq is a Life Coach by profession, but Esa is a teacher.  Hmm, I wonder who is schooling whom?

The grass around Dar Al-Noor was strictly taped off during the masjid’s Eid BBQ.  I guess they really wanted to protect the lawn…with caution tape.
