Covai Post Network


Eid al-Adha, also called the Feast of Sacrifice is a unique festival that Muslims across the world observe. In Coimbatore several families from the Muslim community came together this morning to offer prayers. Eid-ul-Adha prayer ceremony was organized by Jama’ath-e-Islami Hind, Coimbatore.

“Around 10,000 men, women and children participated in this mass prayer ceremony. They prayed for world peace,” Abdul Hakim of Jama’ath-e-Islami Hind, said. The prayer ceremony was organized at Islamiyah Matriculation School Grounds, Karumbukkadai. The prayers began as scheduled around 7:30 a.m.

In the lunar-based Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and lasts for four days. This day is a celebration to honour the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God’s command, before God then intervened, through his angel Jibra’il and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.
