Celebrating Eid al-Adha The Prophetic Way

Make Du’a on the Night Before Eid al-Adha

Begin your Eid al-Adha preparations with heartfelt supplications (Du’a) on the night preceding the festival. Remember, these blessed nights hold immense significance in the eyes of Allah, as mentioned in the Qur’an [89:2]. It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) likened the merit of one of these nights to that of Laylat al-Qadr (The Night of Power) [Ibn Majah].

Engage in Dhikr (remembrance of Allah) and recite verses from the Qur’an to enhance your connection with Allah.

Greet Eid with Positivity

Follow the tradition of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by adorning your finest attire and applying your favourite perfume on the days of Eid. Emulate his example of wearing a special cloak reserved for Eid and Fridays [Ibn Khuzaymah]. By dressing impeccably and radiating positivity, you honour the spirit of this joyous occasion.

Additionally, reaching out to family and friends with Eid greetings carries the essence of worship when done with the intention of pleasing Allah.

Make Takbir From the Day of Arafah

Immerse yourself in the remembrance of Allah during the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah by reciting the Eid Takbeer. These serve as a beautiful reminder of the greatness of Allah and can be easily learned and recited.

Eid Prayer

Participate in the Eid prayer, a fundamental aspect of this blessed day. Following the Sunnah, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) emphasized the importance of offering the Eid prayer before engaging in other festivities [Bukhari].

Make the Greatest Sacrifice

In line with the Prophetic tradition, prioritise the act of sacrifice after the Eid prayer. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) exemplified this practice by sacrificing two animals—one for himself and one for those who couldn't afford it [Hadith]. You can revive this Sunnah by arranging your Qurbani before the Eid prayer to ensure it is not overlooked.

Eat Breakfast

While breakfast typically marks the beginning of the day, on Eid al-Adha, it follows the completion of the Eid prayer. Emulate the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by delaying your breakfast until after the Eid prayer.

Celebrate By Providing Eid Gifts for Those in Need

Elevate your Eid celebration by sharing the joy with those in need through thoughtful gifts. Your generosity not only brings joy to the recipient but also earns you ongoing rewards in the form of Sadaqah Jariyah.

In conclusion, as we embark on the festivities of Eid al-Adha, let us strive to emulate the noble example set by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in all our actions. From everyone at Hayaa The Label LTD, we extend our warmest wishes for a blessed Eid to you and your loved ones.
