Eid al – Adha

October 15, 2013

Today we wish all those in our school community who are Muslim, Eid Mubarak.

Eid al-Adha is one of the most auspicious festivals in the Islamic calendar, when Muslims honor Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his first-born son Ishmael as an act of devotion to God, before God intervened and provided him with a ram to sacrifice instead.

Livestock ranging from sheep to cows are sacrificed in commemoration of the festival, which also coincides with the annual Hajj, when millions gather in Saudi Arabia to conduct the holy pilgrimage.
