American Muslims join Muslims worldwide to celebrate Islam’s most important holiday, Eid-ul-Adha. Eid-ul-Adha marks Prophet Abraham’s spirit of sacrifice and the close of the Hajj pilgrimage at the Holy Ka’aba in Mecca. This day is celebrated to remind Muslims of the importance of sacrifice, service to humanity, and gratefulness to God.
“During these difficult times for our nation, it is more important now than ever to remember what God has given us,” said Suhail Kausar, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Dallas Chapter. “As Muslims, we should strive to show our gratitude through prayers to God and service to humanity.”
The Eid service and program will begin with a congregational morning prayer on Friday, September 1 at 10:30 am followed by a sermon at Baitul Ikram Mosque, 1850 Hedgcoxe Rd, Allen, TX 75013. We will also be holding a Ground Breaking Ceremony of the Mosque Construction project followed by Friday prayers and lunch as well as a special ‘Muslims for Life’ blood drive with Carter Blood Care (10am to 2pm). Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Dallas invites our neighbors to join us in our special program and donate blood to help save lives.
