Eid Al Adha Mubarak “May your Eid be blessed”

Friday 26th October 2012
Eid al-Adhais a religious festival celebrated by Muslims worldwide as a commemoration of Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) willingness to sacrifice his son Ismael for God. Eid ul-Adha begins with a short prayer followed by a sermon. It is also called the bigger Eid because it lasts a day longer than Eid ul-Fitr.
Men, women and children are expected to dress in their finest clothing to perform Eid prayer in a mosque. People these days are expected to visit their relatives, starting with their parents, then their families and friends.
Muslims who can afford to do so, sacrifice a goat as a symbol of Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) sacrifice. According to the Quran a large portion of the meat has to be given to the poor and hungry people, so they can all join in the feast which is held on Eid-Al-Adha.
