Happy Aidil-Adha 1430

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you
Welcome to my blog.


To all muslim around the world, Happy Aidil Adha. Aidil Adha or in other spelling Eid Al-Adha, is the second festive day in Islam after Eid Al-Fitr (Malay = Aidil Fitri). The festive start with a prayer in the Mosque and followed by a sermon just like Eid Al-Fitr. The difference between this two festive day are Eid Al-Fitr is a celebration day after fasting for 1 month while Eid Al-Adha is a day to commemorate the willingness of Nabi Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Nabi Ismail as an act of obedience to God. Thus, Eid Al-Adha also called as ‘Festival of Sacrifice’.

In Malaysia, it is also named as Hari Raya Haji as the festival is celebrated during the Hajj season.


Eid Al-Adha starts in every 10, 11, 12 and 13 of Zulhijjah in the Islamic Calendar. But in the Gregory calendar, usually there a slight difference according to the place. It is due to the difference angle of view of the visibility of the moon.

In the morning 10 Zulhijjah, the prayer will be held in the mosque followed by a sermon. After the prayer, the sacrifice will begin. Muslims who can afford to do it will sacrifice their best domestic animals. What kind of animal? It must be any domestic animal that has four legs and has reach maturity, For example; camel, cows, goat and sheep. The sacrificial meat later will be given to the poor as a gift.

Birds and pigs are not an option.






My family has done the sacrifice along with my father’s relative a year ago in Shah Alam, Selangor. So, for this year we do not make any sacrifice.
