SIDMA College Sabah Distributed Eid Al-Adha Goodies to its Staff.

Eid Al-Adha, which is also known Aidiladha celebration or “Festival of Sacrifice” is an Islamic festival meant to commemorate the obedience of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as an act of his submission to God’s command. Obeying the word of God, Abraham complied, but as he was to sacrifice his son, God replaced him with a goat, which was sacrifice in his stead. Thus, during the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves sacrificing an animal such as a sheep, camel, or a goat.

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!

Sumaiira Zaheer & Family.
