Aceh, November 13, 2011

This month we celebrated Eid El-Adha. Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. This action is very often misunderstood by those outside the faith. Muslims have gathered early in the dawn in mosques to perform the Eid prayer. In this holy day, Muslims celebrate with family and enjoy blessings and joy. The classes held here at the IHF Aceh Center closed for a week during the holiday. Because in Aceh the Idul Adha is a very important celebration. All Aceh people have holidays and go to their villages so they didn’t come to the classes.
