My Eid Tradition in Cape Town

Eid Mubarak to all Muslim brothers and sisters who celebrated yesterday. I had an awesome time with my family and friends. This day is all about family. For those who don’t know why we celebrate two Eid’s which is Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha, I have sourced a summarised explanation for yesterdays Eid Celebration.

Eid al-Adha, or “Festival of Sacrifice”, is celebrated by Muslims to mark the occasion when Allah appeared to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, to demonstrate his devotion to the Almighty.

Ignoring the advice of the Devil, who tried to tempt Ibrahim into disobeying God by saying he should spare Ishmael, Ibrahim was about to press ahead with the sacrifice when Allah stopped him and gave him a lamb to kill instead.

The story is designed to demonstrate how Ibrahim’s devotion passed even the sternest test, and is told in similar fashion in the Jewish Torah and Christian Old Testament, where God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac.

Yesterday the story was commemorated on Eid by the sacrifice of a sheep, or sometimes a goat, although in Britain the animal must be killed at a slaughterhouse. The day is a public holiday in Muslim countries, and the festival’s Arabic title has connotations of a period of rejoicing that comes back time and again. – http://www.telegraph.co.uk

Men is White Salaah Tops is what you will see when they attend mosque in the early morning round about 7:30. This is my family and family friends. Whilst the men are in mosque the females set the tables for a light breakfast including samoosas, pies and other delicacies of their choice.

Dyaab always cracks me up, his really not keen on taking selfies with me!! 

Monochome is still huge, so I decided to fly in that same direction.
