Eid Al Adha or Aidiladha celebration is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as an act of his submission to God’s command. However, God being the merciful, then intervened, and through his angel Jibril (Gabriel) informed him that his sacrifice has been accepted. Muslims around the world observe and commemorate this event; and this year, Muslims in Malaysia will celebrate this auspicious occasion on 01 September 2017 or in Islamic lunar calendar, on 10th day of Dhul al-Hijjah 1438H.

Eid Al-Adha takes place on the 10th of Dhul-Hajj

Where many come together with love and without grudge;

Families sacrifice an animal and feed the poor,

And exchange greetings with neighbours next door,

We go to the mosque in our best clothes,

But first we must make sure we are clean from our head,

To our toes

On this day I am so grateful

To be alive and living in this world that is so beautiful

Eid is always a blessed day,

Filled with joy and blessing I must say!

Eid Mubarak Everyone!

Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha and Happy National Day
