NEW YORK, NY (August 21, 2018) – The Islamic Circle of North America wishes all a blessed Eid Al-Adha.
Today we are reminded of the universal spirit of brotherhood that is embodied by the Hajj pilgrimage, as 3 million Muslims descend upon Makkah in these blessed days. We hope that American Muslims will observe this day with full piety and dignity—making dawah to our neighbors, co-workers and friends as we embrace this joyous season.
Eid Al-Adha commemorates the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH), and Muslims around the world sacrifice an animal and share it with those in need to mark this day.
May Allah Most High accept our efforts in His way and allow us to reap the benefits of Dhul Hijja. May He accept the Hajj of those brothers and sisters fortunate enough to embark on this unforgettable journey and allow us all to visit His beloved house in the years to come. Ameen.
Please accept our warmest congratulations on this blessed occasion and keep us in your prayers! Eid Al-Adha Kareem!
