    eid gifts for the stylish

    Eid al-Adha- the holiest Muslim holiday- is celebrated in the United States on September 12th this year.  Eid al-Adha is known as the 'feast of sacrifice' and commemorates the day when prophet Abraham was going to sacrifice his son but was instructed by God to offer an animal instead. The festival traditionally lasts for four days but that varies by country-this year in Turkey it will last nine days. The date the Eid celebration starts is decided by authorities in Saudi Arabia. They confirm the actual dates of the Muslim festival- and the pilgrimage to Hajj in Mecca -on September 1 based on the sighting of the moon. In the Islamic calendar Eid al-Adha is celebrated 10 days later. This is the second of the Eid holidays and marks the end of Hajj.

    "The Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam's holiest site, and is an integral part of the Muslim faith. According to the Koran, all Muslims who can afford to should make the journey to Saudi Arabia at least once in their lifetime. Every year, at least two million will make the pilgrimage, circle the Kaaba, a shrine built by Ibrahim, and pray to Allah. The prophet Muhammad said that a person who performs Hajj properly "will return as a newly born baby [free of all sins]"." The Week

    The celebration of Eid is a public holiday that involves animal sacrifice, prayers and public gatherings. The family and friends exchange food and gifts and they are also required to share with the poor and the needy so they can celebrate as well.
