Muslims in London are planning a large Eid prayer event to express solidarity with Gaza, to be held in Harrow’s spacious Byron Hall. This significant gathering, orchestrated by the Palestinian Forum in Britain in collaboration with the British Yemeni community, the Muslim Association of Britain, and various mosques and Islamic centers, is set for the first of the first day of Eid al-Fitr (Shawwal 1445 Hijri), expected to coincide with Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

The Salah is not just a celebration of Eid but a powerful statement of solidarity with Gaza amid ongoing hostilities.

The event will be marked by the distribution of hundreds of Palestinian flags, symbolizing the community’s support for Gaza. Adnan Hmidan, the vice president of the Palestinian Forum in Britain, emphasized that the spirit of this Eid revolves around standing with Gaza, influencing every aspect of the event. The forum also intends to seize this moment to highlight the critical importance of participating in upcoming elections, offering a stage for community-endorsed candidates to connect with attendees.

Additionally, the Palestinian Forum has prepared thousands of brochures outlining ways to support Gaza, which will be distributed in key UK cities such as London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Newcastle, among others, on the day of Eid.
