Volunteerism or Family Time: What is Best During Eid?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


In this Fatwa:

1- You should strike a balance between volunteering and spending time with the family.

2- You can volunteer in the morning and spend the evening with the family.

3- You can volunteer this year and spend the coming Eid with the family.

4- Families can also volunteer together.
