American Muslims Celebrate Eid of Sacrifice


Annual Muslim holiday commemorates Abrahamic sacrifice and marks the completion of Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca

American Muslims join Muslims worldwide to celebrate Islam’s most important holiday, Eid-ul-Adhia. Eid-ul-Adhia marks Prophet Abraham’s symbolic sacrifice and the close of the Hajj pilgrimage to the Holy Ka’aba in Mecca. This joyous day is celebrated to remind Muslims of the importance of sacrifice, service to humanity, and gratefulness to God.

“During these difficult times for our nation, it is more important now than ever to remember what God has given us,” said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, vice president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “As Muslims, we should strive to show our gratitude through prayers and service to humanity.”

The Eid service will begin with a congregational morning prayer followed by a sermon. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA invites all Americans to join or observe this important holiday.

Dr. Lateef accepted Islam in 1948 and was a selfless stalwart of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community for the last 65 years. Publically, he is best known for his Grammy Award-winning musical talents and his numerous books on music and spirituality. Dr. Lateef, affectionately known as the “Gentle Giant,” was a devout and practicing Muslim and believed his faith and music were inextricably intertwined. As an example of his religious devotion and exemplary faith, Dr. Lateef performed only in establishments that did not serve alcohol because he came to believe music shouldn't be presented in alcohol-and-smoke cellars.
