November 7, 2011 declared regular holiday for Eid'l Adha

Eid'l Adha falls on November 7 [Monday], which has been declared a regular holiday.

The muslim celebration celebrated worldwide is a "festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid" in commemoration of the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God.

"Eid'l Adha" is like a feast celebration for our Muslim brethren, rich families slaughtered cow or goat and half of it they give to their poor brethren.

Sometimes they have different way to do this in different countries but the meaning is the same share your blessings to the poor.

We should not generalize the Muslim that they are always the villain, their are no different as Christian we are also capable of horrible things. We should accept that in this world there's always good and bad be it Christian or Muslim.

Wow I'm learning a lot of Muslim ideas from this blog. My mother has converted herself into a Muslim while still working in Qatar and now she's encouraging me to follow her, but I refused. Her tidbits about her Islamic experiences are rather fine.

It's really a wonderful thing to do help the poor. I am Christian but I have high respect to Muslims and other religions because I have many friends from different religions and they are exceptionally nice. I totally agree with you that there's always good and bad people no matter what religion they are in or what country they came from. It's just a fact of life. :)
