Ahmadiyya Muslims: Festival of Sacrifice
Ahmadiyya American Muslims Celebrate Festival of Sacrifice
Annual Muslim holiday commemorates Abraham’s sacrifice and marks completion of pilgrimage to Mecca
American Muslims join Muslims worldwide to celebrate Islam’s most important holiday, Eid-ul-Adha.
Eid-ul-Adha 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 Hazeem Phudiapura, 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 our celebrations.
