We would like to wish all our Muslim colleagues, friends and supporters a wonderful week of celebration and positivity this EID ul-Adha 2021.
What is Eid ul-Adha?
Eid ul-Adha begins on the evening of Monday 19 July and ends on the evening of Friday 23 July.
There are two key Eid’s (Celebration Festivals) in Islam: Eid-ul-Fitr, which signifies the completion of the Holy Month of Ramadan; and Eid-ul-Adha, the greater Eid, which follows the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, at the time of Qurbani (sacrifice).
Traditionally, the time is spent celebrating with family, friends and loved ones, often wearing new or best attire and giving gifts to charity to bring joy to those who are less fortunate.
Supporting those who are fasting
Fasting is often a key element in Muslim festivals and it is important to look after your health during these times.

Our YMCA team wishes a blessed Eid Mubarak to you all.
