Eid Mubarak 2024!

Before we get into the main purpose of this article, our legal professionals from S & S lawyers would like to take this chance to greet you and your family “Eid Mubarak!” may the rest of the year be filled with blessings and joy from Allah.

Ramadan ended with a big celebration for Eid Al Fitr, we celebrated this big holiday with our loved ones, had the rest we all deserved and had more time to be closer with Allah and at the same time show kindness and patience as this time of fasting encouraged our spiritual reflection to be stronger than ever.

However, it seems like the holiday didn’t feel long enough with the recent celebration of Eid Al Fitr because the next holidays are already being anticipated in the UAE, with astronomers predicting the first day of Eid al-adha most likely falling on 17th of June which will only be the case if the prediction of Arafat Day falling on the 16th of June is a correct estimation from the Emirates Astronomy Society. The day of Arafat marks the day Prophet Muhammad PBUH delivered a farewell sermon on Mount Arafat.

According to Ibrahim Al Jarwan, the chairman of the Emirates Astronomy Society, it is most likely that Thursday, 20th June will be the end of Tashriq and the end of Hajj season.

There are two Eids (Celebration of festivals) in Islam: Eid Al Fitr, which marks the completion of the Holy month of Ramadan and Eid Al Adha which is the greeter Eid and follows the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, at the time of Qurbani (sacrifice).

What is Eid Al Adha?

“Festival of the Sacrifice” is what they call “Eid Al Adha” - this festival observes how Prophet Ibrahim was willing to sacrifice his son Ishmail, as an act of obedience to Allah but then was later stopped when Allah offered him a lamb to kill instead of his son.

Ibrahim’s willingness and commitment to obey his Lord’s command, without question, is the reason why muslims commemorate this day. Traditionally, it is spent celebrating with family, friends and loved ones, often wearing new or best attire and the giving of gifts.

This upcoming holiday is not going to take long to come, so start taking notes and start planning your time off to maximize this chance.

And again, the accuracy of the days is based on the phases of the moon and will be later confirmed by the moon sighting committee.
