Eid ul-Adha 2018 Celebration

The Prophet peace be upon him said: "There is no deed that is better in the sight of Allah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the (first) ten days of Thul Hijjah”. Increase from the worship of Allah during these blessed days and nights and aim to make positive changes in your life in these days.

The Messenger of Allah, Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, has said: "One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship of "Lailatul-Qadr". (Hadith-Tirmizi)

It was reported from Abu Qutaadah that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of 'Arafah ( 9 Zil Hijjah). He said: "It atones for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year". (Hadith-Muslim)

Prophet of Allah (pbuh) was asked: "What is this sacrifice?" He said: "It is the way of your forefather Ibrahim (AS)". They asked: “What (reward) is for us therein? He replied: "There is a reward for every hair (i.e. the reward for meat and useful parts of the animal's body will be very lofty in merit, but there will also be a great reward for the parts which are useless and thrown away such as the hair)". They asked: "For the wool, Ya Rasulullah?" He replied: "There is one reward for every strand of wool." (Hadith: Ahmed, Ibn Majah)
