Holding Eid prayers in a sports stadium
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
We are university students, and we do not have a place to hold Eid prayers or prayers for rain. For the last four years we have held these prayers in the sports stadium of the college, which is open and has a plastic surface covering the floor. What is the ruling on these prayers in this place?

Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing wrong with your praying in this place. The events that happen there (sports) do not mean that the Eid prayers and prayers for rain cannot be held there, so long as it is clean and pure (taahir) and there are no impurities (najaasah) present. If you can find a better place of your own, that would be preferable. And Allaah is the Source of strength.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
