EID!


Eid Mubarak everybody! I hope your Eid is fun and spent with people you love.

 It's a little early but we're leaving in the morning for Luxor, inshaAllah. I could just schedule the post but I couldn't wait to wish everyone a joyous holiday.

Here's a little info on Eid and what it is, for non-Muslims.  To be honest, the best part of going away for Eid ul Adha for me is skipping the whole meat thing. I don't want to cook on a holiday and I'm not a fan of sheep or lamb meat. I hope that doesn't make me a bad Muslim.

  1. Happy Eid! Enjoy your holiday in Luxor! So jealous I wish we were going away but we're stuck in Cairo for the holiday.However most people will be traveling so Cairo should be a bit quiet Insha'allah!

    P.S I am not a big fan of lamb either and I nearly passed out the couple of times I went to see the sacrifice.

  2. kol sana wenty tayeba :)

    Hm, I had no clue until this year that eid was celebrated throughout the days. Over here in Toronto most of us will be celebrating it on just Tuesday I think. But Hamdolilah the Muslims that want to celebrate it for a couple of days have the long weekend. I hope you and your family have a wonderful eid :)

  3. A'salaamu alaikum sis. I don't like lamb either; it's a big joke with my in-laws, the American beef-eater. ;-) I didn't grow up eating it and I just can't train my tastebuds to like it!

  6. Happy Eid!
    Im not a lamb fan either. Im pretty sure between my light skin and dislike for lamb Im not allowed to call myself an Arab anymore lol! But I make up for it in my love of falafel and olives. Maybe that counts LOL!!

    Have fun!!
