Why We Celebrate Eid-Remembering The True Meaning
Muslims will be celerating Eid in honour of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his child, Ishamael .His willingness was brought from a dream he had from Allah who ordered im to sacrifice Ismahel in Allah’s name.ProphetIbrahim knew that this was a real order and followed the command.Just when Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son who was more than willing to partake in the process, Allah removed Ismail and replaced it with a sheep.This is why Muslims in Hajj sacrifice a sheep in the name of God every year.We do it to symbolize our love for God .
Eid is celebrated with many festive activities.Both me and women wear their best clothes as they attend morning Eid prayers.Gatherings amongst friends and family occur as celerators enjoy meals together.Gifts are also exchanged between children and teenagers.Greetings also occur inthe form of Eid Mubarak!
As we do every Eid, our site is inviting Muslim readers to extend Eid wishes to each other in the comments section of this post.This is apart of our ongoing Muslim unity efforts.We hope that YOU will participate to help make the effort a success.
Non Muslims are also invited to partake in the discussion to learn more about this Islamic festival.
Eid Mubarak and thank you for celebrating Eid with us!
