Eid Moo-barak!



My favourite festival I think yes. Eid-ul-Adha.


Reasons? Food, food and FOOD.


Haha, no but really. It's awesome. The BBQs plus eidi, plus tending to the animals. 


I named my goat 'cheero' this year. Made everyone at home call it cheero. CHEERO.


RIP cheero.


Some stuff I'd like to point out today is firstly for us Muslims to remember the essence of Qurbani. The essence of sacrifice. Rejoicing with the poor, so that they have what you have all year round. Rising above our own wishes and giving them up for a higher purpose. Secondly, please please be nice to your animals. Take care of them. They are the vessels that carry your sacrifice to God, and you need to be kind to them. Not make them run all night in the streets like crazed lunatics when you know the animal will be sacrificed the next morning.


I got very interesting greetings this year, two of which I'd like to type out here:


"Wishing you and your family a very blessed eid day. May our sacrifices transcend from material to spiritual. Let us share our happiness with everyone." - Manaal Memon


and


"I saw a cow pooping. LITERALLY. I was in the car and this cow was at eye level, and I turn around to see youknowwhat coming out of it's youknowwhere. I have been scarred for life. I must scar you too now. So there. Eid Moobarak." - Huda Qadir


Two very different, very touching greetings. Ha ha.


Lastly, remember this:


"It's neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him" 22:37
