With the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, Lloydminster Muslims will celebrate their first in-person, Eid-ul-Adha on Tuesday July 20.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Lloydminster will join with Muslims the worldover in the festival, by greeting each other in-person, wearing festive outfits, exchanging gifts, enjoying special meals and visiting each other’s homes.

The festival which comes about ten weeks after Eid-ul-Fitr, marks the completion of Hajj or the Holy pilgrimage to Mecca.

The service will begin at the Baitul Amaan Mosque in Lloydminster, with prayer from 10 a.m.

Eid greetings will follow at 10:45 a.m.
