Eid-ul-Adha


While in the US Eid-ul-Adha comes and goes without much notice, in some Muslim cultures, Eid-ul-Adha, is called Eid Kabeer or the bigger Eid, compared to Eid-ul-Fitr. Yet, the latter celebration gets more attention for many, perhaps because it follows a month of intense spiritual interaction through extra prayer and fasting, Ramadan. In contrast, Eid-ul-Adha springs up unexpectedly for many, and is then given less attention.

Eid-ul-Adha, in many ways is the bigger Eid. It is a three-day long celebration, four according to some, and commemorates the struggle of Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him, and his family.

How is Eid al Adha celebrated? Eid-ul-Adha tends to fall by the wayside in terms of excitement and attention every year. But like Eid-ul-Fitr, this Eid needs planning and preparation as well. Here are some tips and ideas on how to make Eid-ul-Adha exciting for individuals, families, and the whole community.
