Eid al-Adha or “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid” is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims all over the world to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma’il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead. Eid al-Adha is celebrated annually on the 10th day of the 12th and the last Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah of the lunar Islamic calendar. The day of Eid-ul-Azha starts with the recitation of Takbeer, in which the Muslims glorify the greatness of God and thank Him for His bounties. All the Muslims go to Eid Ghahs (open places) or to mosques to say prayers. After saying their prayer, they pray for the safety and unity of the Muslim Ummah.
Traditionally, the day is spent celebrating with family, friends and loved ones, often wearing new or best attire and the giving of gifts. On this note, Gd Goenka Public School, Sector -9 prays for your happiness, joy and prosperity and wishes you Eid-Ul-Adha.
