What did you do for Eid?
Muslims will start their Eid celebration by waking up early and performing morning prayer. Before going to the mosque to pray, Muslims eat dates. They perform zakat (charity) to purify any indecent acts or speech they did during fasting. Then, Muslims will offer their Salat al-Fitr or Eid prayers.
How was your Eid meaning?
Eid means happiness. There are two major Eids, or holidays, that are celebrated by Muslims worldwide. Each of these have many names, but they are most commonly called Eid al-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking Fast, and Eid al-Adha, the Festival of the Sacrifice.
How did you celebrate your Eid ul Adha?
Sacrifice of a sheep, cow, goat, buffalo or camel, Eid prayers
Why is Eid-ul-Adha important?
Eid ul-Adha is another important festival in the Muslim calendar. Some Muslims may regard this as the most important festival as it remembers the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son when ordered to by Allah . This shows Ibrahim’s obedience to God.
How many Eid are there?
Why are there two Eids? The word ‘Eid’ means ‘feast’ or ‘festival’. Each year Muslims celebrate both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha – but the names often get shortened to just ‘Eid’, which is why it can be confusing.
