Aslm Beautiful Hijabistas
Algamdoelilah, what a beautiful Eid.
Eid Ul Adha celebration, also known as the Festival of the Sacrifice.
The story of Nabiy Ibrahim’s sacrifice is a beautiful one of faith, love and mercy. Nabiy Ibrahim sees in a dream to sacrifice his son, Nabiy Ismail. This was extremely difficult for Nabiy Ibrahim as He continuously prayed to Allah SWT for a son. Years before, Nabiy Ibrahim was ordered to leave Nabiy Ismail and his mother Hajar in the desert. Hajar in desperation and supplication to Allah SWT for any resource, runs between mount Sa’fa & Mar’wa. Allah SWT blessed them with water, known today as the well of Zam Zam.
These rituals are ‘replayed’ during the days of Hadj, and at the end of the holy pilgrimage marks the day of Eid Ul Adha. This year I was blessed to host our annual Qurbaan at my home. Fortunately for me, my family as well as my husbands family celebrates Eid Ul Adha on the same day as those who have completed their Hadj.
Eid Ul Fitr we’d celebrate at my moms and Eid Ul Adha we take turns to Qurbaan at my moms and two sisters, hence my excitement as the opportunity comes around every four years.
Here’s some pics of our day
I wore a coral LEGENDARY dress, so comfortable & cool on the 35deg heat.
