Solar Eclipse Prayer

WHEN: Monday, April 8th, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

WHERE: Masjid AlSalam Prayer halls

  • Eclipse prayer is a sunnah and is advisable for all Muslims that are able to attend it.
  • On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will be visible in the U.S. for the first time in seven years. This rare cosmic phenomenon occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking out the face of the Sun, and darkening the sky as if it were dawn or dusk. The eclipse will trace a path of totality—where the Moon’s shadow completely covers the Sun— through Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. It will be the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous U.S. until 2044.
