From all of us at ICNA-SoCal, ‘Eid-ul-Adha Mubarak!
We ask Allah SWT to grant the Muslim ummah bountiful blessings, as we celebrate with those who have completed the best of journeys – the Hajj – and commemorate the ultimate sacrifice of our beloved Prophet Ibrahim AS.
This is a day of joy, a day of remembrance, and a day to culminate our sacrifices. Whatever we have sacrificed – the great toil and exertion of the holy pilgrimage; our daily work in the service of our families and livelihoods; the precious time spent in spiritual betterment; or the animal we slaughter and distribute on this ‘Eid day – we pray that Allah the Almighty makes our sacrifice pure and good, elevates its worth to the highest degree, and is pleased to accept it from us insha’allah.
As we celebrate, let us also keep in our du’as our brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity who are suffering around the world. Jazakallahu khairan for your continued support as we work to bring aid to the needy at home and abroad through ICNA Relief and Helping Hands.
‘Eid is an occasion for family and friends, so we invite you to join this weekend for Muslim Family Day at Six Flags Magic Mountain. We look forward to seeing all of you with your families next Saturday!
May you have a joyous ‘Eid!
Interim President, ICNA Southern California
