Eid Ul Adha 1440 Fete
The Prophet Peace Be Upon him said ‘لكل قوم عيد وهذا عيدنا’ which means ‘for every people there is Eid and this our Eid’- narrated by Al Bukhariyy. Eid is a prestigious holiday celebrated by all Muslims around the world. Al Amanah SRC primary and secondary held a successful Eid fete on Wednesday 21 August 2019 to celebrate the glorious occasion of Eid Ul Adha and the achievement of Muslims who have completed the annual Hajj. The High School students were provided with an insightful religious lesson by the school Imam Shakyh Amr Alshelh about this glorious occasion and was followed by a beautiful chanting performance by the school chanting band.
The school committee introduced food trucks which sold pizzas, gozlemes, potato-on-a-stick, milkshakes, ice cream and fairy floss. The school Eid fete also consisted of rides such as jumping castles, Pirate ship, Bungee Run, Sumo Wrestling, arcade games, ice hockey and pool tables. The main feature of the day was the students were able to handle different types reptiles including crocodiles, snakes, lizards and turtles. The day ended with the laughter of the students and the screams of joy; it was indeed a day well spent and was thoroughly enjoyed by the student.
May Allah accept the fasting of those who fasted the day of Arafah and grant forgiveness and reward for those who attended Hajj. We would like to congratulate the Muslim community and in particular parents and students on this great occasion.
