Today is Eid-el-Kabir, so I wish my Muslim family and friends Eid Mubarak.
Alhamdulillahi Robil Alamin for witnessing another Eid. May Allah grant us the blessings and rewards therein and anwer our prayers. May the lessons of the celebration live with us. May He grant us more Eid in good health and wealth, ameen.
We in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada had our Eid prayers at the BMO soccer center in Halifax. May all our prayers be answered, ameen.
More about Eid according to www.quora.com:
“Eid el-Adha or Eid-el Kabir (the Festival/Feast of Sacrifice or sometimes called the greater or big Eid) is done in remembrance of Abraham’s (Ibrahim’s) willingness to sacrifice his son out of faith in Allah and Allah’s mercy on us all. As Ismail was replaced with a sheep, lamb is the traditional thing to eat on Eid al-Adha.”
