Eid was celebrated with students across all classes #Online on 31 July 2020

Id-ul-Zuha, commonly known as Bakr-Id in the Indian subcontinent is the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice. The festival is celebrated with great fervor by Muslims across continents. The word ‘id’ derived from the Arabic ‘iwd’ means ‘festival’ and zuha comes from ‘uzhaiyya’ which translates to ‘sacrifice’.

Id-ul-Zuha is not only a festival for Muslims, but a day to remember and honour the great sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismail. For people across the world, even those not following Islam, the story behind Id-ul-Zuha is a lesson in faith and obedience. It is a reminder to not overtly value worldly things, encouragement in community building and a reminder to help those in need.

To celebrate this festival one students from each class presented a speech in the class on Friday, 31 July emphasising on the main five tenants of Islam and importance of sacrifice. They appreciated and brought to focus the great sacrifices made by the unnamed heroes at the border, doctors, police department and all the other front line workers so that we can also carry on with our loves unharmed and peacefully.
