When is Eid al-Adha 2009, Eid ul-Adha, Id Arafa 2009, video,


Eid al-Adha ED-ul-Adha, Id Arafa 2009 photoWhen is Eid al-Adha (ED-ul-Adha, Id Arafa) in 2009? In 2009, Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice, Sacrifice Feast) will approximately begin on Friday, that is 27th of November (1430, Islamic Calendar) Please remember that as per the Muslim calendar, as the pious holidays begin on the sunset of the previous day, that’s why observing Muslims will celebrate Eid al-Adha on the sunset of Thursday, the 26th of November.


The dates mentioned here are according to the data provided by Figh Council of North America. The dates are based on astronomical predictions not on actual sight of the moon. Update: I just noticed that this website has mentioned Eid-Al-Adha 2009 is from November 28, 2009 at 12 AM to November 30, 2009, 12 AM.


Kindly note that, due to the methods of the Islamic (Hijrah) lunar calendar (the calendar has twelve lunar months and the beginnings and endings of these months are determined by the sighting of the crescent moon, so it is difficult to predict accurately beforehand) the precise date of the beginning of the Islamic holidays sometimes can be determined. Estimates are based on expected visibility of the hilal (waxing crescent moon following a new moon) and may vary form location to location. These dates are more apt for North America.


Eid al-Adha (ED-ul-Adha, Id Arafa) is one of the two most important Islamic festivals, which begins on the 10th day of Dhu'l-Hijja, the last month of the Islamic calendar. It lasts for three days. During the Hajj, Muslims from around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God. Thus Muslims remember and commemorate the trials and triumphs of the Prophet Abraham.

The Qur'an describes Abraham as follows:

"Surely Abraham was an example, obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the polytheists. He was grateful for Our bounties. We chose him and guided him unto a right path. We gave him good in this world, and in the next he will most surely be among the righteous." (Qur'an 16:120-121)


Here is wishing that all your wishes are granted as you offer your sacrifices to Allah. Eid Al-Adha Mubarak to you.
