Eid Mubarak to our Muslim Sisters and Brothers in the Lehigh Valley

On the Holy occasion of Eid Al-Adha that celebrates the Hajj, may you be filled with happiness and may every step of your journey through life be blessed by Allah. Eid Mubarak!

We especially remember in prayer our friends at the Lehigh Dialogue Center.

Eid al-Adha, also known as The Festival of Sacrifice or ‘Big Eid,’  is considered the holier of the two Eids, and marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage. The festival remembers the story of Ibrahim’s sacrifice when Allah appeared to him in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son Isma’il as an act of obedience to God. As Abraham was about to kill his son, Allah stopped him and gave him a lamb to sacrifice instead. The story demonstrates Abraham’s dedication to surrendering to Allah and Muslims celebrate Eid as a reminder of their own commitment to God.”
