Over 15,000 people attended Eid ul-Adha prayers at the East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre yesterday (Sunday 6 Nov 2011), spread over four ‘sittings’ to accommodate the huge demand.

Worshippers gave about £25,000 in charitable donations, to go towards the Maryam Centre development. Hundreds of Eid balloons were given out to excited children, to help support and raise awareness for the new centre, which is now 50% complete.

We would like to thank all those who donated. May Allah accept your donations and generosity during the blessed days of Eid and Tashreeq.
