Eid Mubarak!

Lettering with Eid Mubarak and decorative lanterns

We’d like to say Eid Mubarak to all residents celebrating Eid al-Adha.

Eid al-Adha is due to be marked by Muslims across the world from Friday, 31 July. Also called the Festival of the Sacrifice, Eid al-Adha is the second of 2 Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year and is a very special, holy time for the Muslim community.

Like Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr, which took place earlier this year, Eid al-Adha will again be a very different experience this year due to coronavirus government restrictions.

Various organisations have compiled guidance to help Muslims to make the most of Eid celebrations while staying safe.

The Muslim Council of Britain has worked with the British Islamic Medical Association to produce advice on how Muslims can celebrate Eid al-Adha safely. Please visit the Muslim Council of Britain website.

The government’s updated places of worship guidance also now includes a section on celebrating Eid safely. Visit GOV.UK for their special religious services and gatherings checklist.

Public Health England has also created a staying safe for Eid al-Adha blog.

We wish you a happy and peaceful Eid al-Adha.
