Eid al-Adha Celebration

It’s holiday!

We will leave the busy and hustle street in Dubai right now in celebration with our Muslim’s festival, the Eid al-Adha.  We are heading to one of the seven Emirates States of the UAE, Ajman.  I might share something about it after my returns.

What is Eid al-Adha? 

“It is called the “Sacrifice Feast” where it honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, as an act of obedience to God’s command. Before he sacrificed his son God intervened by sending his angel Jibra’il (Gabriel), who then put a sheep in his son’s place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: the family retains one-third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends, and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy”

I haven’t celebrated this festivity with a Muslim friend so I cannot share anything about it. But I would like to greet our fellow friends to have a wonderful celebration and may all our prayers be answered with Allah.
