Eid al-Adha will be celebrated tomorrow (Monday, Nov 07) -- EID MUBARAK to All: Watch video of the biggest cow of Asia

KARACHI, Pakistan (Nov. 06) – Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival which is celebrated to commemorate the obedience of Prophet Ibrahim towards Allah (S.W.T).

Prophet Ibrahim who was a very aged man had only one son named Ismaeel who was born to him only in his old age. When Allah (S.W.T) commanded him to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ibrahim didn’t hesitate and was about to do so. Allah (S.W.T) accepted his sacrifice and exchanged a goat with his son Ismaeel.

Today Eid al-Adha was celebragted in Middle East, central and far-east Asia and Europe.

Muslims residing in UK and other European countries were also among those who made the day by sacrificing animals. In United States, public slaughter of animals is banned; therefore, people perform the religious duty at Slaughter House.

In addition, Eid is being observed in Philippine, Indonesia, Malaysia and other far-east Asian countries.

In subcontinent, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, Eid al-Adha 2011 will be celebrated tomorrow (Monday, Nov. 07). People are ready to celebrate the big eve with scarifying their animals.

I found the video, shared below, while searching for some material on Eid al-Adha and want to share here with my readers and friends across the globe. Watch video and enjoy!

In the end ….. Wish Happy Eid to All Muslims. EID MUBARAK and …. Don’t forget each other in your supplications and do remember those who need your support the most.

The Hajj (Pilgrimage) – Fifth Pillar of Islam: Watch Hajj 2011 Live From Saudi Arabia on Youtube

The Hajj (Pilgrimage) – Fifth Pillar of Islam:

Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam, is a mandatory act of worship (Ibadat); means to visit the Kaa'ba in Makkah on the specified dates in the month of Zul-Hijjah (Dhul-Hijjah) and perform the religious rites in accordance with the Islamic Laws.

In the forenoon of the eighth day of Zul-Hijjah (Dhul-Hijjah), a pilgrim purifies himself once again by bathing as he did before ‘Umrah in the place in which he is staying, if convenient. He puts on his Ihram and recites few Arabic verses called Talbeeh:

"Labbaik, Allahumma Labbaik. Labbaik La Shareeka-lak Labbaik. Innal hamdah wan-naimatah laka walmulk. La Shareeka-lak."

The above verses translate as…

"Here I am, oh Allah, here I am. Here I am. You have no partner. Here I am. Surely all praise, grace and dominion is yours, and you have no partners."

This year Hajj will begin from 5th November and approximately 2.5 million Muslims from around the globe have reached Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj. Only Muslims are allowed to enter these sacred areas, Mina’, Muzdalifah, Arafat but now everyone can watch it live on YouTube.
