Useful things to know for those attending the Eid prayers at Masjid AlSalam located at 16700 Old Louetta Road, Spring, TX 77379:

- 10:00 am – led by Sh. Fahad Tasleem
Please note that there is road construction happening on Old Louetta Road which could delay cars coming towards the masjid, especially for the 2nd and the 3rd prayers. Please CARPOOL to reduce the number of cars coming towards the masjid.
- Men will pray in the Multi-Purpose Hall (gym)
- Women will pray in the prayer halls in the main building – both upstairs and downstairs halls will be available
Pay Your Fitrah:
Fitrah must be paid before salat-ul-Eid. Please pay it as soon as possible instead of waiting until the prayer. Teams that are responsible for distributing the Fitrah to the right people require time and paying at the last minute means that your money does NOT reach the right people in time. Fitrah is $10 per person and can be paid in person or electronically using either of the following methods:
Please follow the instructions by the parking volunteers and officers present there to guide the flow of traffic. It is VERY important that no one blocks the way for another car, unless instructed to do so by the parking team. You are expected to return immediately following the prayer if your car is blocking anyone.
