Muslims in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and Malaysia, among other countries, are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha today amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has so far infected more than 17 million and killed nearly 668,000 people worldwide.

Wearing face masks and getting temperature checks as a precaution, Indonesian Muslims performed morning prayers on Friday to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha in mosques with reduced capacity as well as on the streets.

As the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country struggles to contain the spread of the virus, worshippers were advised to maintain social distancing during prayers.

Indonesia’s religious ministry also asked mosques to shorten the gatherings this year, while many mosques cancelled the traditional ceremony where livestock is slaughtered and meat distributed to the community.

Instead, the donated sheep, goats and cows will be killed in abattoirs.

“This year’s Eid ul Adha is very different from the previous years because we need to follow health protocols as we perform prayers, like maintaining social distancing,” said Devita Ilhami, 30, who was at the Sunda Kelapa mosque in Jakarta.

In Saudi Arabia, Eid prayers were offered at Masjid-e-Nabvi and the Grand Mosque in Makkah after the pilgrims spent the entire night on Mount Arafat offering prayers in Muzdalifa.

The pilgrims moved to Mina on Friday morning where they will performing the stoning of the devil at Jamarat Al-Aqba, sacrifice animals, shave their heads and then leave for Makkah to perform Tawaf Al-Ifada and Sai.

Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan also extended Eid greetings to mark the festival.

“On the occasion of Eid Al Adha, we congratulate the UAE president, Vice President, Rulers, and people in the UAE. We especially extend our wishes to our frontline heroes, martyrs’ children and families. A blessed and prosperous Eid to all,” he said.

In Turkey, people gathered outside the Hagia Sophia for Eid ul Adha prayers, the first time it has taken place since the building was reconverted to a mosque earlier this month.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in his message on the occasion of Eid praised the country’s fight against the coronavirus and urged the citizens to abide by social distancing rules as they marked the festival.

“I wish Eid-ul-Adha may bring serenity to our hearts, well-being to our country and peace to our world. Eid Mubarak!,” Erdogan said in a statement.

“Unfortunately, this year we observe Eid-ul-Adha with grief since Hajj will be fulfilled in a limited manner due to the coronavirus pandemic. InshaAllah, next year, millions of Muslims will once again take to the Holy Kaaba and sacred lands with love, enthusiasm, and joy,” he was quoted as saying by Anadolu Agency.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Friday urged Muslims in his country celebrating Eid-ul-Adha to stay away from big gatherings.

An outbreak in the state of Victoria has been partly linked to family gatherings after the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in his message said “Eid-ul-Adha was one of the most important Muslim holidays and a time to reflect on the lessons of sacrifice and the values of service, compassion, and charity.”

“On this important occasion, Muslims usually gather with families and loved ones to pray, share festive meals, provide food to those in need, and give thanks for the blessings in life. This year, as we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and follow health guidelines to keep each other and our communities safe, celebrations will look different – especially for those who were unable to participate in the pilgrimage,” he said.

“However, the values at the heart of Eid-ul-Adha have never been more important. Whether it is supporting a local charity, being there for neighbours, or helping those who are more vulnerable, Muslim Canadians continue to show us what it means to serve our community,” he added.

Eid Al Adha 2020: Rulers to release prisoners ahead of festival

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid has ordered the release of 203 Dubai prisoners ahead of Eid Al Adha.

The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai pardoned the inmates in order to allow them to spend the festivities with their families.

Dubai’s Attorney General, Essam Issa Al Humaidan, said Sheikh Mohammed’s directives would ease the burden on the prisoners’ families and afford them to opportunity to reintegrate themselves into society.

President Sheikh Khalifa ordered the release of 515 prisoners for Eid Al Adha on Friday.

Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, the Ruler of Ajman, pardoned 62 prisoners to mark the upcoming holiday.

The prisoners demonstrated good conduct during their sentences, state news agency Wam reported.

On Sunday, the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, ordered 110 prisoners, arrested under various charges, to be freed.

Sheikh Saud was keen to give these prisoners a second chance at a new life, as well as to ease the burden on their families, RAK’s government said in a statement.

Rulers of the Emirates traditionally pardon hundreds of prisoners during religious holidays.

Inmates are often chosen because of their good behaviour along with those jailed for financial crimes and debts.

Eid Al Adha is expected to begin at the end of July. Though the exact date is not yet known, some astronomers believe it will fall on July 31.

The final decision rests with the UAE government based on consultation with local Islamic authorities, who monitor the moon cycle to determine the beginning and end of months in the Hijri calendar.

The festival is the most important of two main holidays in the Muslim world. It begins on the 10th day of Dhu Al Hijjah, which is the 12th and final month in the Islamic calendar.

Al Adha means the sacrifice. The specific sacrifice this holiday is named after is explained in the Quran, which tells of how Prophet Ibrahim dreamt that God asked him to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as a test of his faith.

At first, Ibrahim dismissed the dream but it reoccurred several nights in a row. The prophet is said to have grappled with the decision but ultimately chose to submit to God’s will as an indication of his commitment to faith.

The devil tried to dissuade him, telling him not to kill his son, but Ibrahim responded by throwing rocks at him. This act is now repeated by pilgrims at Hajj who throw stones at symbolic pillars.

Just before Ibrahim went to carry out God’s command, God replaced his son with a goat and told him to sacrifice the animal instead. Now Muslims celebrate Eid by eating the halal meat of a sacrificed animal.

On World Milk Day, Dr Seema Khanna, consultant nutritionist, shares the much-needed facts about the various milks available in the market.

Goat milk is easy to digest as the fat molecules in the good milk are much smaller than the fat molecules in cow’s milk. This milk is cheaper to process because it does not require homogenisation.

Goat milk is being used in treatment of dengue. It has fewer allergenic proteins, and causes less inflammation. It is high in calcium, fatty acids and low in cholesterol. It has good amount of protein, fat iron vitamin C and vitamin D with less of lactose content. It is good for patient having stomach ulcers.

United States holidays 2021

Many Muslims in the United States celebrate Eid al-Fitr (also known as Id al-Fitr or Eid ul-Fitr) on the first day of Shawwal in the Islamic calendar. It marks the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan and the start of a feast that lasts up to three days in some countries.

Is Eid al-Fitr a Public Holiday?

Eid al-Fitr is not a public holiday. Businesses have normal opening hours.

What Do People Do?

Eid al-Fitr is an important Islamic holiday that involves many Muslims waking up early and praying either at an outdoor prayer ground or a mosque. Many Muslims dress in their finest clothes and adorn their homes with lights and other decorations. Old wrongs are forgiven and money is given to the poor. Special foods are prepared and friends or relatives are invited to share the feast. Gifts and greeting cards are exchanged and children receive presents. Eid al-Fitr is a joyous occasion but its underlying purpose is to praise God and give thanks to him, according to Islamic belief.

Some Muslim groups in the United States campaign for schools in some parts of the country to allocate Eid al-Fitr as a day off without being penalized on Eid al-Fitr. For example, the Coalition for Muslim School Holidays, which is a group of more than 80 religious and ethnic organizations, have been lobbying to have the two Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha designated as days off in New York City schools.

Public Life

Eid al-Fitr is not a federal public holiday in the United States. However, many Islamic businesses and organizations may alter their business hours during this event. There may be some congestion around mosques around this time of the year. In New York City, the day is a holiday for public schools.

Background

Eid al-Fitr is also known as the Feast of Fast-Breaking or the Lesser Feast. It marks the end of Ramadan and the start of a feast that lasts up to three days in some countries, such as Jordan and the United Arab Emirates. It is one of Islam’s two major festivals, with Eid al-Adha being the other major festival. Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of the fasting that occurs during Ramadan.

It is not possible to predict the date of Eid al-Fitr according to the Gregorian calendar accurately. This is because the month of Shawwal begins, and hence the month of Ramadan ends, after a confirmed sighting of the new moon. The new moon may be sighted earlier or later in specific locations. Hence, Muslims in different communities, for example on the east and west coasts of the USA and Canada, may begin the Eid-al-Fitr celebrations on different dates.

About Eid al-Fitr in Other Countries

Read more aboutEid al-Fitr.

Note: Regional customs or moon sightings may cause a variation of the date for Islamic holidays, which begin at sundown the day before the date specified for the holiday. The Islamic calendar is lunar and the days begin at sunset, so there may be one-day error depending on when the New Moon is first seen.

Year Weekday Date Name Holiday Type
2015 Sat Jul 18 Eid al-Fitr Muslim
