The Day of Arafat is one of the days when supplications (du`a) are more likely to be accepted. [Ibn al-Haajj,al-Madhkhal; Saffarini, Ghidha’ al-Albab]


EID-UL-ADHA:  11TH SEPTEMBER 2016

Known as the 'Greater' of the two Eid's, Eid-Ul Adha commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's (AS) willingness to sacrifice his only child, Ismaeel (AS) for the sake of the Almighty Allah (SWT).  Allah (SWT) showed mercy to Ibrahim (AS) and replaced Ismaeel (AS) with a Ram.  Therefore, Muslims across the world remember this day by performing Qurbani (slaughtering of an animal) and distributing the meat between friends, relatives and the poor.
