Happy Eid al-Adha

Eid al-Adha is a joyous commemoration of the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim and his firm submission to god’s commands.

It begins on the 10th day of Dhull Hijjah, after the pilgrims begin to descend from Mount ‘Arafah.
Here are 6 ways you and your family can celebrate!

1) Wake up early and perform Ghusl: The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to make ghusl before going to the ‘Eid prayers.

2) Wear beautiful clothing: Follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) by wearing your most beautiful and clean garments to go out to pray.

3) Attend the ‘Eid prayer: The ‘Eid prayer happens in congregation at the masjid or at other public places such as a musallah or park.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) used to go out to and come back from the ‘Eid prayer walking.

4) Say the takbeerat abundantly!

Allahu Akbar (Allah is the greatest الله أكبر)

Laa ilaaha illAllah (There is no god but Allah لا إله إلا الله)

Allahu Akbar (Allah is the greatest الله أكبر)

Wa lil laah il- hamd ولله الحمد

الله أكبر، الله أكبر، الله أكبر، لا إله إلا الله، الله أكبر، الله أكبر، ولله الحمد

Say it often on the way, during and after the ‘Eid prayer.

5) Visit family and friends: After offering Eid prayer, visit and exchange dua, greetings and gifts with others.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “give gifts, and you will love one another”. [Sahih Bukhari].

6) Remember Prophet Ibrahim
The history of ‘Eid al-Adha goes back to Prophet Ibrahim AS. Remember and share his story with others, and read the verses about him in the Qur’an.

Eid Mubarak to all our brothers and sisters around the world!
