Eid Al Adha Mubarak

Wishing all my sisters and brothers who celebrate a wonderful Eid Al Adha.

Eid Al Adha Mubarak!

This is the first celebration of Eid Al Adha that my family and I have in Wellington. We were lucky because we have the celebration of the Eid at our office, the Embassy of Indonesia in Wellington.

We started the praying session quite early at 8 AM and continued with breakfast together with Soto Ayam or the Indonesian chicken soup as the main menu. We also have potluck so various menus we also available. I brought perkedel kentang or potato fritters for this celebration. We had corn fritters, quiche, nuggets and some desserts like fruit pudding, cookies and cakes as well. It was a merry celebration indeed.

The khotbah or the sermont was given by one of our local staff, Ustadz Agam Jaya. He shared the story of qurban or the sacrifice as well as about Hajj or the pilgrimage. It was such a moving story and I sincerely hope my family and I can come and visit Makkah and Madinah for our holy pilgrimage. Ameeen.

We did our qurban in Indonesia, particularly in Lampung, our hometown. Alhamdulillah together with the big family, we can have the cow this year. 

As you might know, the values celebrated during Eid al Adha is the beauty of sharing with those who are less fortunate than us and ikhlas, or sincere, sacrificing or  letting go the things we love for our love to Allah SWT, the Almighty. Just like the story of Abraham and Ismail. Sometimes, this simple principle is the hardest in its implementation and that’s why we are reminded every year in this beautiful celebration.

After the prayer and breakfast, we took pictures together and called it a day. 

Hope we all always remember the beauty of sharing with others and our love to Our Creator.

Happy Eid Al Adha!

Eid al Adha is special as we celebrate the wisdom as well as the values of sacrifices and sharing with your fellow sisters, brothers, and families, particularly the less privileged ones.

Our sacrifice

Through the ritual of sacrifice, we learn more about the beauty of sharing and believe in God's willing, as well as sharing the joy of this festive celebration with others.

With my mom, brother and nice :)
We went back to Lampung, my hometown, and sacrificed one goat this year.
We had this ritual done in the local mosque and celebrated the rest of the day with big families.  
It was really nice to meet everyone after all those years.
Hope you all have a great Eid as well.
