Eid-ul Qurban: Celebration of the Sacrifice

2008 Vol. 6: Nov/Dec

Living in a Muslim country, in a Muslim neighborhood, and in an upstairs flat of a building owned by a Muslim landlord who lived with his family of twelve downstairs —was a great way to learn about Muslims and their religion. This Muslim family adopted us as their own and were extremely kind to include us in their festive holidays. One of the highlights of the calendar year was Eid-ul Qurban, Celebration of the Sacrifice (also known as Eid-ul Adha). I remember the first time we were introduced to this holiday. We had just moved to our new location from the capital city after two years of language study. Our children were six and two years of age.
