Eid Mubarak from the Islamic Society of Baltimore!
May Allah (swt) accept all our qiyaam, sayaam and forgive our shortcomings, iA. Ameen.
The Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB) will host Eid prayer tomorrow at our facility. Due to inclement weather, we will have the prayers inside our facility similar to how we have been conducting our weekly Jumuah prayers. We will abide by all State and Local guidelines with regards to COVID-19. We will be well below our 50% capacity and will require masks, 6 feet social distancing and prayer rugs. If you are sick please do not come and endanger your fellow Muslims. Temperature checks will occur.
It is worth noting that due to the uncertainty around this virus, unexpected and unforeseen circumstances could at any time force us to reconsider this decision.
Eid Prayers (similar setup to Jumuah):

- No socializing before or after salah
- Please avoid crowding
- Please head to your cars immediately after the prayer has concluded – while maintaining 6 foot social distancing
- Please be patient and wait for the next salah if we reach capacity
- Bring an umbrella in case it rains and we decide to open up some space outdoors
- Please follow the directions of our volunteers, security staff and Police
- Be kind to our volunteers who are sacrificing time with their families to help bring you a safe and pleasant experience
In order to protect our congregants, the following rules will be strictly enforced:
- No Mask No Entry
- Masks must remain on at all times inside and outside of our facility
- Prayer rugs are required
- Bathroom/Wudu Stations will be closed
- No socializing or gathering on ISB property

To summarize, if you are sick please stay home and help protect our congregation. We highly recommend children under the age of 13, individuals over the age of 65 and, most importantly, individuals with underlying health conditions stay home for their protection. Restrooms and all indoor washroom facilities will be closed to the public, so please come with wudu. Please be patient as we navigate through these unprecedented challenges while trying to provide a fruitful experience for everyone. We are coordinating with Baltimore County Police to ensure a safe and secure experience for all attendees.
