Eid ul Adha 2022 is just around the corner. Although it’s not as popular as Eid ul Fitr, exchanging Eid gifts with your loved ones is one of the best feelings in the world! Eid is celebrated all over the world. Everyone, from friends and colleagues to extended family members, exchanges gifts to show their gratitude.
Eid al-Adha: Feast of Sacrifice
Muslims around the world celebrate Eid ul Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice. It is a major holiday that lasts three to four days. Most Muslims attend special prayers at various major mosques around the globe.
Muslims often wear new clothes, exchange gifts, and entertain their children. They also take a day off school for college students. Many Muslims do not work that day.
Eid ul Adha is a special holiday because it marks the culmination of Hajj or Pilgrimage, the fifth pillar of Islam, and is of high significance. Only those who can physically and financially afford to make the annual pilgrimage to Makkah and Madinah in Saudi Arabia are obligated to do so.
The Tradition of Exchanging Gifts
Arabians value exchanging gifts as a sign of strong relationships and close bonds. According to Islamic scripture, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) frequently gave and received gifts such as perfume, livestock, clothing, and food. This is why exchanging gifts has become an integral part of regional culture. Despite the difficulties of the coronavirus pandemic in the past few years, this tradition has grown stronger. Gifts can now be ordered online to remind loved ones that even though they may be far away, we are always close to them.
