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.
