I have a GCSE Spanish Writing or Physics (depending on the day) Exam on Eid.
What should I do? What is everyone else doing?

I cannot relate to this but anyone with common sense would not even need to pose this question, Exams take priority, any sort of religious celebration does not. Missing this celebration won't impact on your life whereas your GCSEs potentially could.

Well, personally I am going to the exam, then come home and then celebrate, most likely it will be Physics for me as it is my last exam.

I am Muslim and I would do my exam and then come home to celebrate Eid. It’s an exam which will have an impact on your entire future, whereas eid can be celebrated for three days! Hope this helps ☺️

I'd recommend everyone to do this. The exam is only a few hours. Please everyone try not to stress and to remain optimistic if it is Eid.

come on, i'm doing my A levels and fasted throughout GCSE exams and will have the same issue with Eid and exams this year- Use you common sense and go to your exam, Eid doesn't mean you gotta ruin your future, celebrate after your exam and inshAllah you'll feel better for it as well
good luck

On eid, you have to pray in the morning, thats partly why i was asking, i didn't intend on saying i was thinking about missing the exam.

My muslim friends at uni (quite a few) see it as God would be just as disatisfied if you failed an exam as if you missed one day due to it...

assalamu Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

u can give ur exam and then celebrate eid.
and as far as for that depending on the day for physics, prepare it beforehand so that if it may come on eid day..... u simply just go and take the exam and not spend the rest of time of eid celebration in reviewing notes and all as u would had studied before...... plz tell me if this helps u.....hope it may help

may Allah SWT grant you success in both worlds, this and the hereafter

best of luck for ur exams and one more thing......recite: Ya-Mutakabbir before taking exam. reciting this name of Allah SWT makes us successful in our doing/work.

Assalamu Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

Yeah I have Physics on the 15th as well. I’d be attending my exam of course as it holds priority whereas Eid can still be celebrated after your exam anyways

[EDIT]: Just read the rest of the thread, Looking at the exam is at 9 because its a morning exam, its a bit tricky tbh considering that a lot of jama’ahs are at that time. But to stay safe? Don’t risk it. Do your exam because you have a legitimate excuse. Islam isn’t strict upon this to say that you have to sacrifice everything in your life for religion. Read this for confirmation:

1 – that Eid prayer is Sunnah mu’akkadah (a confirmed Sunnah). This is the view of Imam Maalik and Imam al-Shaafa’i.

2 – that it is a communal obligation. This is the view of Imam Ahmad (may Allaah have mercy on him).

3 – that it is a duty for each Muslim and is obligatory for men; those who do not do it with no excuse are sinning thereby. This is the view of Imam Abu Haneefah (may Allaah have mercy on him), and was also narrated from Imam Ahmad. Among those who favoured this view were Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah and al-Shawkaani (may Allaah have mercy on them).

Bottom-line is that you dont have to miss your exam just for Eid. Sure, you may miss Eid prayers in the morning but it has to be done. After all, after the exam you can celebrate when you get back.

Good Luck on all of your exams!

the physics exam is a morning one so you can sit your exam then come home in time for lunch to celebrate it.

Hi/Assalamu alaikum

As you are probably aware, Eid is on Friday, but lucky enough there are many mosques who do Eid Salat early and late. By this I mean that Physics is only a 1hr long paper and you should be done by 10am. This leaves you the opportunity to either go to Eid prayer early in the morning at 5/6am depending on the mosque or some mosques such as Regents Park and East London do prayers at 11am as well which is after the exam so you won't be stressed.

This is assuming you live in London, please check your local mosque times wherever you live and I'm sure you will find something. The ruling for Eid salat is that it is compulsory for every man and the prophet (pbuh) also encouraged women to attend Eid prayer. HOWEVER, if there is a legitimate excuse (such as an exam) then it is not required for you to attend Eid salat. Saying this, you should make the effort to attend it as it has been made possible with the various different prayer timings which are not in the space of your exam.

To sum up, many mosques have different prayer timings, so you should be able to attend salat either before or after your exam, but try your best to attend it even though not compulsory with a legitimate excuse such as an exam.

Eid Mubarak and good luck with your exam
