The Festival of the Sacrifice
Eid ul Adha is a three day celebration, which
occurs on the 10th day of the Islamic month
of Dhul Hijjah
Eid is a happy time and the festival is
celebrated in many different ways in
different countries.
Everyone wears new clothes - in bright
colours - and many have beautiful
embroidery and shiny sequins.
• Eid-ul-Adha is the celebration of sacrifice and marks
the end of Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca.
• This celebration is to remember Prophet Abraham
who was very obedient to God and was ready to
sacrifice his most precious possession when he was
asked to do so. Abraham was very patient and in
constant search for truth.
• Muslims all over the world reflect on these qualities
in their lives at this time of the year.
• At Tredworth Infant School muslim children came to school
in their beautiful Eid clothes. They had an assembly where
a parent volunteered to describe and name the different
clothes and styles.
• Children shared their experiences of how they spent their
special day and the different presents they received.
• They all named their favourite food. Some of the parents
brought samoosa, bhajis, pakoras, barfee, jalebees , cakes
and biscuits to share with their teachers and classmates.

hands and feet. Some children had a go at making henna
designs on hand outlines on paper.
