My First Event - Feast of Sacrifice



Welcome to My First Event - Feast of Sacrifice. 

Salams. Eid al Adha or Greater Eid are celebrated by the muslims all over the world to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim  to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to a command from Allah and Ismail's acceptance of this command. In the Indian Sub Continent, the festival is known as Bakr -Id, because of the tradition  of  sacrifice a goat which is called Bakr in Urdu.

The festival is also known as Id-ul-Zuha. The word "id" derived from the Arabic "iwd" means "festival" and "zuha" comes from "uzhaiyya" which translates to "sacrifice".
 The basis for the Eid al- Adha comes from the 196 th verse of Sura 2 (Al-Baqara) of the Quran.
The days of Eid al Adha are the 10th of Dhul Hijjah upto the 12th of Dhul Hijjah (3 days and 2 nights) sacrifice may take place until sunset on the 13th Day The days of Eid have been singled out in the Hadith as days of remembrance, eating, and drinking."
The days of Tashriq are from the Fajr of the 9th of Dhul Hijjah upto the Asr of the 13th of Dhul Hijjah (5 days and 4 nights). This equals 23 prayers: 5 on the 9th-12th which equal 20 and 3 on the 13th. This includes the Friday congregational prayer if it falls within these days. There is no harm in saying it after the Eid al- Adha prayer
Like Eid ul-Fitr, Eid al-Adha begins with a Sunnah prayer of two Raka'ah (units) followed by a sermon (khuṭbah).
The word "Eid" appears in Sura al-Mai'da of the Qur'an, meaning 'solemn festival'.
Eid al-Adha is celebrated annually on the 10th, 11th and 12th day of the twelfth and the last Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar. Eid al-Adha celebrations start after the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. The date is approximately 70 days (2 Months & 10 days) after the end of the month of Ramadan, i.e. Eid-ul-Fitr. 
At the conclusion of the prayers and sermon, the Muslims embrace and exchange greetings with one other (Eid Mubarak), give gifts (Eidi) to children, and visit one another. Many Muslims also take this opportunity to invite their non-Muslims friends, neighbours, co-workers and classmates to their Eid festivities to better acquaint them about Islam and Muslim culture.
This year Eid al Adha is on Friday, 26 th October.
