Celebrating Eid-ul Adha at KBRI (Indonesian Embassy)

On this date, we Indonesian Muslims in New Delhi celebrated Eid-ul Adha, but actually, Indian Muslims here would celebrate it on the next day. Our embassy followed the wukuf time in Arafah Makkah, Saudi Arabiah which reported that the time felt on December 9th, 2006, and the Indian Muslim here argued that the exact time was on December 11th 2006.

At this celebration, there were Indonesian students along with KBRI staffs, some Muslim diplomats from neighboring countries like Malaysia, Brunei, and Singapore. We were taking praying together at KBRI. After taking praying, we were welcomed to have breakfast together hosted by our embassador. Not only Muslims, the breakfast was also served to non-Muslim who came after the Eid prayer had been done.

Like in every celebrations held at KBRI, the food served were Indonesian foods, like ketupat, ikan asin (salty fish), satai, etc. All of us enjoyed the moment together. just like we were in our home-country, Indonesia. After eating, we talked in a friendly way and joking endlessly.

I went back home at 14.00 pm. and went to bed as soon as iarrived home because i felt very tired.

Happy Eid

"Eid ul-Adha" means the major festival. It is also called the "Eid of Sacrifice" or the "Eid ul-Hajj". The "Eid ul-Adha" is a commemoration and a reminder to Muslims of several things; for example:

• The story of Prophet Ebrahim (AS) (Abraham) and Prophet Ismail (AS) (Ishmael) and their willingness to make great sacrifices for Allah.

• To be ready to make sacrifices for the religion of Islam.

• For those who have not gone for Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mekka), it is showing support for their fellow Muslims who are completing the Hajj on that day (i.e., 10th Dhu al Hejja).
