Learning more about Eid ul Adha
Posted by Yacoob on December 5, 2008
With Eid ul Adha just around the corner, I’ve been collecting some information about things like Udhiyah (the sacrifice), the benefits of the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, and other issues related to this time of year.
I’ve saved everything into a document, which you can download here. It is very rough, as I didn’t have time to properly categorise it and have links on the contents page – but hopefully it’ll be easy enough to navigate. I didn’t keep references, but most of it is from www.islamonline.net.
There’s an interesting piece on the concept of animal sacrifice in Islam – which refutes a misconception of the Islamic sacrifice, which some think is tantamount to the sacrifices offered by idol-worshippers.
I hope the information is useful to you – not only the rulings, but the articles as well.
Eid Mubarak to everyone
