Eid al-Adha 2022 will start after Maghrib on the evening of Saturday, July 9th. Eid lasts for three days, ending on Wednesday, July 13th.
Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha after the pilgrims in Mecca complete Hajj. Hajj begins on the 8th of Dhul Hijjah and ends on the 9th day. The last day of Hajj, the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims stand on the mountain of Arafah, making dua to Allah. The celebration of Eid al-Adha marks the 10th day of Dhul Hijjah, where Muslims offer a sacrifice commemorating the devotion of Prophet Ibrahim (as).
The Holy Quran recounts:
“And when they had both submitted and he put him down upon his forehead, We called to him, ‘O Ibrahim, You have fulfilled the vision.’ … Indeed, this was the clear trial. And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice…” (Chapter 37: Verses 103-8).
Celebrating Eid is a privilege many Muslims worldwide cannot afford to participate in. Here at Human Concern International, we firmly believe that Eid is for Everyone.
All it takes is $60 to help a family join the celebration of Eid al-Adha. They will receive a share of your Qurbani, and their children will enjoy both the sweetness of candy and the tenderness of the meat.
Warm their hearts and bring a smile to their faces on the blessed day of Eid.
Eid Mubarak in advance!
