Ladies - we're all too familiar with the Eid morning scene. No, it's not a picturesque family lovingly preparing for Eid prayer.
It's a red-eyed face behind disheveled hair (mom) dragging confused creatures at the crossroads of sleepiness and premature excitement (kids) out of bed after a month-long terrible sleep routine.
It's the mom who's debating whether to shower her kids or just spray water in their hair, to do the elaborate hair-do she saw on YouTube for her daughter or resort to a braid and stick a flower in it, to insist that the kids brush their teeth or just slap a Listerine breath strip on each tongue, and then, oh yes! Breakfast.

Husband is asking if his clothes are ironed.
(Bloodshot eyes glare in his direction. Husband decides to iron his own clothes.)

And all this at 6:30 AM just to make it in time for prayer at 8 AM!

Many sisters asked to have Eid prayer at 9 am. So, we'll be proposing it to the board Wednesday, June 29th, inshaAllah.

Will the extra hour turn that scenario into a calm, loving morning?

Not completely, but it'll give a few more minutes to sleep, a little more time to wake up the kids, and a more probable chance of enjoying Eid morning *that* much more.

Sign the petition!
