2015 Eid-Il Kabir: It’s the Feast of the Sacrifice for Muslims the world over – Tola Adenle

September 23, 2015


The Muslim World will tomorrow, Thursday September 24, celebrate the Feast of the Sacrifice.

In Nigeria that has Christianity and Islam as the two main religions, the air of celebration has been in the air for weeks with ram markets springing up everywhere. In Southwestern Nigeria, especially where some areas have Muslims and Christians in the same families, festivities often extend to more people than are Muslim adherents. People visit Muslim relations and friends, and partake of slaughtered ram meat. It’s a gesture that is often repeated at Christmas.

This kind of interactions – peace among us all – is basic to all the great religions of the world, and as our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate with two-day public holiday in Nigeria tomorrow and Friday just as it’s done at Christmas for Christians, it is a practice highly recommended to the rest of Nigeria – and the world – so that we can all live in peace and harmony.

I say, A Happy Eid Al-Adha to all my blog visitors from Nigeria to Indonesia to Egypt and many other countries. As we say in Nigeria, Barka de Sallah!
