‘Hazara People Celebrate Eid Qurban”Eid Al-Adha” in Brisbane’
Eid Al-Adha or Eid ul Azha is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth month of Islamic Lunar Calendar, after Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah in Saudi Arabia. The underlying flavor is the spirit of sacrifice or Qurbani, commemorating Prophet Abraham’s great act of faith many centuries ago. Almighty God put Prophet Abraham to a most difficult trial, the details of which are described in the Glorious Qur’an. During this day, men, women, and children are expected to dress in their finest clothing. For the millions at Hajj pilgrimage, it is a big day. On this day, the pilgrims reach the grounds of Mina where they sacrifice an animal. It was here that Prophet Abraham is believed to have sacrificed his son Prophet Ishmael.
On the day there will be entertainments like Drama, poem, children group dance, and the young Hazara Artist Ali Omid will be live on concert to entertain the participants.
