Eid al-Adha is known as the greater Eid due to the sanctity of Dhul Hijjah. Eid al-Adha coincides with the great pilgrimage of Hajj and the sacred time of Qurbani. Sacrifice is at the heart of Eid al-Adha, inspiring the practice of Qurbani as well as the other modes of celebration. The day begins with the glorification of Allah (SWT) and collective Eid prayers. In many countries, the offering of Qurbani takes place straight after Eid prayers, but the believers are allowed to offer sacrifice any time during the three days of Eid.

Spirit of Giving at Eid

Eid al-Adha is a time of sharing and giving. In addition to Qurbani, the believers engage in various acts of kindness and generosity. Some people make donations to help the poor and needy to share the joy of Eid with them. Others distribute sweets to children and members of the congregation. Some families bring food and snacks for everyone to enjoy. Another common observation includes handing out of balloons and small gifts to young children. All these actions are influenced by the spirit of generosity and self-sacrifice that accompanies Eid al-Adha.

These kind gestures are a means of increasing love and compassion between members of the Muslim community. However, it is also important to remember the less fortunate on this blessed occasion. Many orphans in poorer countries are not able to enjoy Eid after losing their parents. You can brighten up their day by donating to the Eid Gift appeal of Orphans in Need.

Eid Gifts for Orphaned Children

Traditionally, Eid presents for children include snacks, Eid money, activity books and toys. An Eid gift package from Orphans in Need contains necessary clothing, food, and constructive toys for orphans. Donate generously to provide a child in need with vital survival aid and restore their joy of Eid al-Adha.

The Virtue of Looking After Orphans

It is essential to support the vulnerable individuals during times of misfortune as well as times of happiness. In a hadith, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:

“None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.”

The Prophet (PBUH) promised the reward of paradise in his own company for those who look after the orphaned children.

“I and the one who sponsors an orphan will be in Paradise like these two” – and he gestured with his forefinger and middle finger, holding them apart.”

Bukhari, 5304
