PostSubject: Aid Adha (Sacrifice Festival)   Sun 6 Dec - 0:10

Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) is an important Islamic religious festival that is observed by MuslimsAlgeria world-wide. In , a predominantly Muslim country, this festival is also referred to as Eid el-Kbir.
This is one of the two Eid festivals that are celebrated by Muslims –
the other being Eid ul-Fitr that marks the end of Ramadan.

Eid al-Adha is a commemoration of the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael for Allah. According to Islam,the
son that Ibrahim was willing to sacrifice was Ishmael - who later
became the forefather of the Arabs – and not Isaac as recorded in the
Old Testament of the Bible. As Ibrahim was about to sacrifice Ishmael a
voice from heaven stopped him and he was directed to sacrifice a ram
instead.

This four day event starts on the 10th day of
the lunar Islamic calendar month of Dhul Hijja. While Eid al-Adha is
always on the same Islamic calendar date,the date on the Gregorian
calendar varies each year. This is becausethe Islamic calendar is lunar
and about ten days shorter than the Gregorian solar calendar. The
beginning of Eid al-Adha is the day after the Muslim pilgrims descend
from Mount Arafat at the end of Hajj. As the fifth pillar of Islam, Hajj is a pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, an obligation that every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so must fulfill.

There are a number of traditions and practices related to Eid al-Adha which must be observed by followers of the Islamic religion.
Men,
women and children dress in their best clothing and attend a mosque to
perform the Eid prayer. Those that can afford to do so will sacrifice
one of their prime domestic animals in commemoration of Ibrahim’s
sacrifice. This is symbolic of a Muslim’s willingness to make
sacrifices in order to continue pleasing Allah. As the sacrifice is
being made, participants recite the name of Allah along with an
offering statement and supplication as a reminder that all life is
sacred. About two-thirds of the meat is given to less fortunate people
so that they can also join in the feast of Eid al-Adha. The balance of
the meat is cooked as part of a celebration meal to share with family
and friends.

Muslims in Algeria, and all over the world, look
forward to Eid al-Adha as a time of worship, to participate in
charitable acts as an acknowledgement that all blessings come from
Allah, and to strengthen ties with family and friends.
