Muslims across the world celebrate Eid-ul-Adha

Tomorrow, Nov 16, Muslims all across the world will be celebrating the second most significant holiday in Islam.

Those who can afford it, sacrifice a sheep (sometimes a goat), as a reminder of the sacrifices the prophet Ibrahim made to Allah. People then share the meat amongst their friends, family and impoverished loved ones.

Not only does this mark yet another auspicious day to celebrate the Islamic religion, but it marks the end of the holy pilgrimage to Mecca. Today, millions of people who traveled to mecca to complete Hajj will have finished in time for Eid-ul-Adha.

In Dallas, families will go to the Dallas convention Center to attend a 9 a.m. prayer and meet with family and friends afterwards.

Unfortunately, due to senior exemptions, I will not be joining my family for the days festivities, but will take part in whatever I can for the remainder of the week. Celebrations will continue until Sunday, just in time for Thanksgiving break.
