 Eid ul-Adha Holiday Resource
About Eid ul-Adha
It begins on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar, and falls at the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.The Eid-Ul-Adha celebrations start with attendance at the Eid Prayer and sermon in the morning. Eid-Ul-Adha is a three-day Muslim holiday and celebration. People wear their nicest clothes, visit each other’s homes, beginning with their parents, and share feasts and present gifts and sweets to children. It is considered obligatory to donate money to charities at this time, enabling poor people to buy new clothes and food so that they, too, can celebrate the holiday. Known as the ‘Feast of Sacrifice,’ The holiday commemorates the Prophet Abraham’s unselfishness in sacrificing his son, Ishmael. God had asked him to do this in a dream and Abraham, though tempted by the devil to refuse, agreed to kill his boy. In return, God spared the boy’s life, substituting a sheep for Abraham to slaughter instead. To celebrate Abraham’s unselfishness, people sacrifice a lamb, goat, cow or other animal, and share the meat with their family, friends and, most importantly, with the poor. Make dessert (something simple that everyone likes, like chocolate cake) and write up a small decorative definition of Eid day. Share this with your neighbors.
