Festival of the Sacrifice

This year “Festival of the Sacrifice” began this Sunday, August 11, and end four days later on Thursday, August 15.
The festival marks the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah, but his son was then replaced with a lamb.
Millions of Muslims around the world will gather to mark one of the holiest days in the religious calendar.
Large groups get together to pray while enjoying feasts and wearing their best clothing.
Traditionally, the festival lasts for four days but public holidays vary around the world – with Arab countries observing a nine-day public holiday.
Our Family performs our Eid pray at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Canada place. It was not a so hot summer morning, we had breakfast in downtown and came home to prepare for the evening pot luck gathering at our location in the Heights. Here a few photos from our small group with friends and family.
