The Festival of the Sacrifice
Eid ul Adha is a three day celebration, which occurs on the 10 th day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah Eid is a happy time and the festival is celebrated in many different ways in different countries. Everyone wears new clothes - in bright colours - and many have beautiful embroidery and shiny sequins.
Eid-ul-Adha is the celebration of sacrifice and marks the end of Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. This celebration is to remember Prophet Abraham who was very obedient to God and was ready to sacrifice his most precious possession when he was asked to do so. Abraham was very patient and in constant search for truth. Muslims all over the world reflect on these qualities in their lives at this time of the year.
At Tredworth Infant School muslim children came to school in their beautiful Eid clothes. They had an assembly where a parent volunteered to describe and name the different clothes and styles. Children shared their experiences of how they spent their special day and the different presents they received. They all named their favourite food. Some of the parents brought samoosa, bhajis, pakoras, barfee, jalebees, cakes and biscuits to share with their teachers and classmates. Some girls had beautiful artistic henna designs on their hands and feet. Some children had a go at making henna designs on hand outlines on paper. Eid-ul-Adha display was made for the main hall.
