Eid mubarak!!

eid al adha. its one of the two holidays of islam. i dont think its as well known (for non muslims) as ramadan and eid al fitr but its equally as important. the origins of eid al adha are from a very familiar story. the story of a prophet. the prophet who has formed the three major religions...Ibrahim (abraham), pbuh. remember the story? remember how ibrahim's faith was tested over and over but the final test was that of sacrifice. God ordered Ibrahim to sacrifice his own son for the sake of Allah and Ibrahim agreed to do it. just as ibrahim was about to kill his son, God ordered him to stop. he had proven his love for Allah. this sacrifice is what is remembered during eid al adha but of course we dont sacrifice our children, we offer a sacrifice or a lamb or goat instead. we keep a portion of that meat for ourselves but we sacrifice most of it to others who are in need. we also thank Allah for what we have and make our own personal sacrifices to show God that we love Him.



  1. Eid Mubarak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Happy Eid! May Allah give you so many blessings.
