Tomorrow! Eid Al Adha!

In several countries of Muslim Africa such as Mali, Niger, Senegal, Benin… the festival of Aid EL Kebir is called Tabaski, and part of the Amazighs in North Africa call it Tafaska.
According to history, the feast of Aid El Kebir commemorates the enslavement of Ibrahim (Abraham) to God who ordered him to sacrifice his son Ishmael. Ibrahim did not hesitate to sacrifice his son Ishmael to show his submission to God, the latter then sent him a sheep to sacrifice to spare him the sacrifice of his own son. Ibrahim is thus for Muslims a model of the true believer. He is also the first Muslim and one of God’s messengers. The message of the prophet Muhammad returns to the traditions of Ibrahim, which is why Muslims celebrate Aid al-Kebir.
This feast also called the « Feast of Sacrifice » marks the end of the pilgrimage (Al Hajj), it takes place every year on the 10th of the month of Dhou Al Hijja which is the last month of the Muslim calendar.
However, as it is traditionally established, the Muslim calendar does not allow to know precisely, in advance, the days of celebration of events such as the first day of Ramadan, or Eid al-Fitr, or Eid al-Adha.
Thus, the day of celebration of Aid el-Kebir varies geographically depending on when the full moon is observed.
For the year 2018/1439 the day of Aid Al-Adha ( 10 Dhou Al Hijja 1439 of the hegira) is August 21, 2018 plus at least one day.
This feast, which is more than a simple religious event, is an opportunity to meet with family and friends, it is also synonymous with sharing and generosity towards the poor and needy.
You will find on this site the exact date of the al-Adha festival for several countries, and this just after the official announcement of the organizations that deal with the determination of the beginning of the hijri months
