Eid al-Adha is due to begin on Tuesday 15th October 2013. No doubt we’ll want to send out Eid al-Adha greeting card to all you know.
This is the second Eid of year which also marks the time of the Hajj Pilgrimage, an annual visit to the holy land of Makkah.
In Eid al-Adha, muslims who couldn’t go to Hajj still need to offer a sacrificial animal on the day of Eid after the morning Eid prayer.
As usual it is a time to meet and greet family and friends and have a good time. Before Eid starts you’ll no doubt will be receiving lots of messages about Eid. And Eid al-Adha greetings will bombard your phone and emails.
As usual I like having a nice collections of pictures or Eid cards so that I can email or WhatsApp them to my friends and family. Since we started this blog we’ve had a few posts on Eid Cards they were made for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.
Eid al-Adha in the West
Eid in the muslim world is an official holiday so many shops are not open but here in the west, everything is open and it is like any other day of the week. Although I usually can take time of work and spend the entire Eid day with my family and friends. Most muslim school children take the day off and in some cases the schools are also closed.
A lot of young muslims in the west go around their friends and families house after the morning prayer. The animal is usually sacrificed in the shops so people aren’t really busy with that in Eid day here in the west. I usually have to take a trip to my in-laws but this year they have gone to Hajj so I may not have to go around which means more time for my family at home 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful and joyous Eid! Here are a good collection of Eid al-Adha Greeting Cards for 2013. It is spread over two pages so click on page number two to see the rest.
