Eid Mubarak

Since it is the Hajj vacation, we all got to prepare for Eid. Are you fasting today?
Eid Mubarak for every one around the world. Today (15th October 2013) is the Eid Adha, which means Festival of the Sacrifice, where Muslims around the world sacrifice a sheep, goat, cow, or anything similar, and it is only for those who can afford it. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts: a third for oneself, a third for the friends and family, and a third for the poor people. Islam has plenty of charity-motivating acts or even times when charity becomes obligatory, such as the case when you do sacrifice the animal at Eid.
Thus, Eid brings happiness to everybody, and it is important to realize how important charity is. Islam encourages charity in various ways as well.
