Why is Eid al Adha celebrated?
This festival commemorates Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to sacrifice his son to God. This festival also marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Eid al-Adha is a time for wishing one another well. Many Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha with prayers and social gatherings.
Even us Catholic, we enjoyed the long holiday, we usually make it sure that it will never pass us without celebration. So for this year, I & my friends have decided to have a getaway from Dubai. We went to Umm Al Quwain, which is the least populous of the seven sovereign emirates in the United Arab Emirates, located in the north of the country.
We grilled our food fresh from the market.
Drinking beer is one of our bonding moments together; get drunk, share stories, teasing and making fun of each other, laughing and making its memories.
