As the Acting Chair of the CMF, I would like to wish all our members and Executive team Eid Mubarak.
Eid Al-Adha will be celebrated by Muslims across the United Kingdom on Tuesday 20th July 2021 (tomorrow). Eid Al-Adha celebrates the end of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca which every Muslim should undertake once during their lifetime if he or she is well enough and can afford to do so.
The festival remembers the devotion to God and obedience of the Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him), who did not hesitate when God commanded him to sacrifice his son, a story that is found in the Bible as well as in the Quran.
You can learn much more about Eid al-Adha from this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eid_al-Adha
Although restrictions have been eased, please do worship safely and keep in mind those that are vulnerable.
