In preparation for Eid al-Adha, many in the community are eager to find out if the final date has been announced. ISNA follows the decision of the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) to determine the date for both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. In the case of Eid al-Adha, the Fiqh Council uses the date determined by the Hajj authorities in Makkah.
This date has only been tentatively calculated at this point for Sunday November 6, 2011.
The official date will be announced by the Hajj authorities, and followed by FCNA and ISNA, later this month. As soon as the Hajj authorities announce the official date, FCNA and ISNA will let the community know. ISNA will send an email announcement to every person on our mailing list and will also post it at the top of our website.
For more information, please refer to a statement released by FCNA earlier this week regarding the determination of the date of Eid al-Adha in the year 2011 (1432).
