Eid Al-Adha!

Millions of Muslims across the world will celebrate Eid al-Adha, an Islamic religious festival to mark the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

This second Eid is also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, following after the first Eid al-Fitr which marked the end of fasting during the month of Ramadan. 

Eid al-Adha is a time for celebration over a two to three days period.  Activities include special morning prayers, decorating homes with lanterns, twinkling lights or flowers and eating specially prepared foods.

Due to recent restrictions during the pandemic, many families were unable to celebrate in full and get together. However, as the restrictions have finally eased hopefully once again we will all be able to celebrate and dine with our loved ones again.  This has been hard as many within the communities see family life/unity and Cultural and religious beliefs as the bed rock of their society.

The RAF wishes everyone around the world a happy Eid Al-Adha!
