Eid Ul-Adha Mubarak | URBAN HIJAB

They ask you (O Muhammad [PBUH]) what they should spend.  Say: “Whatever you spend of good must be for parents and kindred and orphans and Al-Masaakeen (the poor) and the wayfarer, and whatever you do of good deeds, truly, Allaah knows it well.”  Translation of the Holy Qur’an 2:215

Eid ul-Adha is the “Festival of Sacrifice” celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice his first son Ismail (AS) as an act of obedience to Allaah (SWT) – God Almighty.  Upon his willingness to follow the commands of Allaah (SWT), He provided Ibrahim a ram to sacrifice in place of his son.

Eid al-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims in Makkah conducting the Hajj descend from Mount Arafat.  This holiday falls on the 10th day of the holy month of Dhul Hijja.  Dhul Hijja is the 12th month of the Islamic lunar calendar.

And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice (a ram);  And We left for him (a goodly remembrance) among the later generations.  “Salaam (peace) be upon Ibraaheem (Abraham)!”  Translation of the Holy Qur’an 37:107-109

“Taqabbala Allaah minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept from us and from you).”

To you and your family, we send you greetings for a very blessed Eid ul-Adha.  Eid Mubarak.

What we say:

الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر
لا إله إلا الله
