Eid ul-Adha Activities for Children

Welcome to our Eid ul-Adha section!

The celebrations will begin on 31st July 2020 and on 20th July 2021.

Eid ul-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice, also known as the Greater Eid)  remembers the prophet Ibrahim's readiness to sacrifice his son in obedience to Allah. It is celebrated at the end of the Hajj. The Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca which all Muslims, who are strong enough and can afford it, are expected to do at least once in their lives.

The story of Ibrahim, or Abraham, is also in the Jewish Torah and the Christian Old Testament.
