“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could be present here today.

Eidgah or Idgah عیدگاہ

September 21, 2009

Muslims offering Id prayers at an Eidgah in Jammu on Friday.

Eidgah or Idgah (Urdu: عیدگاہ) is an open-air mosque usually outside of city (or at the outskirts) to perform Eid salah.

It was a practice of Prophet Muhammadsawa to perform Eid Salaah in Eidgah at the outskirts of the city. Hence, It is Sunnah to perform Eid Salaah at the Eidgah.

The very first Eidgah was at the outskirts of Madina nearly 1000 footsteps from Masjid-e-Nabawi.

My late grandmother Daw Daw Kyaw used to tell me about this ‘Jummat’al-Wida’ (Jummat Al-Beda) or The Farewell Khutbah(Friday Prayers) of Ramadan with the tears welling in her eyes. She told me about how the old people used to cry on these last Friday of Ramdam because they are not sure whether they would be still alive on next year t o get a chance to pray again on the auspicious day like this.
