Eid Al-Adha Mubarak

Assalammualaikum W.B.T

 Eid al-Adha also called Feast of the Sacrifice, the Major Festival, theGreater Eid and Bakrid, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honour the willingness of the prophet ʾIbrāhīm (Abraham) to sacrifice his young first-born son Ismā'īl (Ishmael)a as an act of submission to God's command and his son's acceptance to being sacrificed, before God intervened to provide Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead.

Alhamdulillah,after 4 years celebrated Eid abroad,this is the time where i can be with my family for both Eid,Eid Fitri and Eid Adha.As an athlete,time with families is really limited and u will only get a chance once in a million years.Sometimes,i didnt celebrate because there are a lot of tournaments that i have to participate. However,life as an athlete is really short..sacrificing is needed. Alhamdulillah, this year, i can celebrate my Eid Adha with my wife at Malaysia.

Since my wife is 9 months pregnant,I just celebrated my Eid at Ipoh.I can feel the differences.When you celebrated at East Coast and Utara.They still manage to do all those special raya's menu but the celebration is kinda simple compared to Terengganu .But yes,,the place doesnt matter as long we as Muslim,understand the real meaning of Eid al-Adha.

FYI,during the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham's trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. This action is very often misunderstood by those outside the faith.Furthermore,Allah has given us power over animals and allowed us to eat meat, but only if we pronounce His name at the solemn act of taking life. Muslims slaughter animals in the same way throughout the year. By saying the name of Allah at the time of slaughter, we are reminded that life is sacred.

As,Eid Al Adha is on Friday, we had our Qurban on Saturday .The duration of sacrifice is three days (10th, 11th and 12th) and two nights (11th and 12th). The 10th of Zul Hijja is the most preferred day of sacrifice, followed by 11th Zul Hijja and then 12th Zul Hijja. The mosque nearby Meru heights had 10 Cows to be slaughtered.
So ,our family cow is ready to be slaughtering .The cow is totally ready to meet Allah .

Gotong-royong session with all the Meru's people.Alhamdulillah..Everything is going so well.And the event ended at 12 pm.

Results from the Qurban..I had yummy gear box soup prepared by my wifey!How about you?
