Eid-al-Adha Prayer in Makkah, 1442 AH / 2021


This Eid Adha Prayer is perfom in Masjdi Al-Haram Makkah, on 10th of Dzulhijjah 1442 AH or 20th July 2021. It's lead by Dr. Bandar Abdul Aziz Baleela as Imam and Khatib (speaker).

Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) also called Eid al-Qurbān or Eid al-Kabīr (Major Festival), it's the second of two great Muslim festivals, the other being Eid al-Fitr.

Eid al-Adha marks the culmination of the hajj (pilgrimage) rites at Mina, near Mecca, but is celebrated by Muslims throughout the world. As with Eid al-Fitr, it is distinguished by the performance of communal prayer (salat) at daybreak on its first day.

It begins on the 10th of Dhū al-Ḥijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar, and continues for an additional three days (though the Muslim use of a lunar calendar means that it may occur during any season of the year).

During the festival, families that can afford to sacrifice a ritually acceptable animal (sheep, goat, camel, or cow) do so and then divide the flesh equally among themselves, the poor, and friends and neighbours.

Eid al-Adha is also a time for visiting with friends and family and for exchanging gifts.
