Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha are the two major yearly holidays of Islam.
Eid-ul-Fitr follows the month of fasting, Ramadan. Eid-ul-Adha falls on
the 10th day of the Islamic month of Zul Hijjah. It commemorates the willingness
of Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael for the sake of God. May
Allah's peace be upon these two great Prophets.
For Muslims living in North America, it is a challenge to maintain Islamic
holidays and traditions in a predominantly non-Muslim environment. It
is particularly difficult for children, who see their friends and classmates
celebrating Christmas with lots of hoopla, gifts and excitement, while
Eid is not celebrated in the same way.
It is with this in mind that Sound Vision has put together the articles
below. They feature practical and creative tips and ideas that can help
Muslim individuals and families make the most of the Eid celebration.
