Eid Al Adha in Dubai

About seventy days after Eid Al Fitr, Eid Al Adha begins on Zul Hijja 10, triggering great celebrations all over the Islamic world. In the meantime, pilgrims in Mecca will have completed their rituals on Zul Hijja 12 after performing their main ritual of standing on Mount Arafat in Mecca on Zul Hijja 9. To celebrate the event, the Islamic world offers sacrifices following the example of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham).

Eid Al Adha celebrations, which continue for four days, begin with performing the Eid prayers in the early morning on Zul Hijja 10, followed by a short sermon by the leader of the prayer or Imam. This ceremony is generally held in a large open place and attended by thousands of Muslims. As soon as they have performed their Eid prayers, it is customary for Muslims to greet each other by shaking hands and saying Eid Mubarak (Blessed Eid).
 
Islamic cities and villages are colourfully decorated while children usually wear new clothes and get Eidiyya (money offerings) from adult relatives. Traditional sweets and fruits are served in the houses of all Muslims during visits by friends and relatives.
 

Muslims get together during both Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha to remember Allah's bounties and celebrate His glory and greatness. During these two religious festivals, they also remember those who are not as fortunate as them. Donations towards Zakat, Eid clothing, animal sacrifices etc become paramount.

The Dubai Events and Promotions Establishment (DEPE) ensures a festival atmosphere and organizes many festivities to coincide with Eid celebrations. These include acrobatic, musical and comedy shows in major malls, an Eidyat Dubai raffle, Dhiyafat Al Eid (traditional Emarati welcome with coffee & sweets) at Dubai Airport and major malls and various concerts including an Arabic concert by renowned Arabic singer Mohammed Abdo.
