Muslims around the world celebrate Eid Al Adha – the Festival of Sacrifice during the 10th day of Dhul Hijjah, the last month of the Muslim calendar. The event marks the end of Hajj, a five-day pilgrimage of all able-bodied and financially capable Muslims who are obliged to undertake once in their lifetime. This is believed to cleanse the soul and instill a sense of equality and community. On the day of Eid, a morning prayer takes place, and a celebration begins. There are also animal sacrifices for the purpose of charity. The meat of the sacrificed animal is divided into three groups: the person sacrificing it and their family, extended family, and those who needed it.
Northern Lights Relief Foundation will organize an Eid al Adha donation to help bring joy to the community this Eid. We aim to reach out and as many people as we can such as woman’s asylums, homeless shelters, students, and refugee shelters to help them afford goods.
