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.

American-Muslims observe 30-day fast to enhance spirituality and increase their service to humanity

 

Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide. It will commence Wednesday, July 10th and end on August 8th.

Tens of thousands of American Muslims belonging to one of the nation’s oldest Muslim organizations, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, will observe Ramadan across 73 chapters nationwide this year. During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. Fasting, a discipline also practiced by Jesus Christ and many honored Biblical Prophets, is a time to reflect, repent, and become spiritually pure, which, in turn, helps lead to societal peace. Ramadan is also a time to increase charity and service to the poor.
