Eid al-Adha: Seeking Closeness to Allah

2024 Vol. 3: May/June

From June 16-18, millions of Muslims from around the world will arrive in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, for Islamic pilgrimage (Hajj). Adult Muslims must perform the Hajj at least once in their lifetime, if possible, to earn spiritual merit, wipe away past sins, and start afresh. During the Hajj, Muslims will rehearse for the Day of Judgment and perform the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice, known as Eid al-Adha, seeking closeness to Allah.
