20 Jul Eid Ul Adha
As we celebrate the diversity of our country and indeed our company, let’s wish our Saltie Muslim’s well over Eid Ul Adha, ending on the 23rd July in South Africa.
Coming at a time when we can all do with some comfort, Muslims prepare to share kindness and love with all regardless of religion, belief or culture.
At this time, believers emulate prophet Ibrahim’s faith in Allah by offering animal sacrifices.
Although not a public holiday in South Africa, Eid Ul Adha is celebrated with family, friends and loved ones, often wearing new or their best clothing and also involves the giving of gifts.
