As with any important religious occasion, Muslims follow the example (Sunnah) of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and practice various Sunnah acts on Eid al-Adha.

What are the Sunnah acts for Eid al-Adha?

Here’s everything you need to do on Eid al-Adha:

  • Make ghusl (take a shower or bath)
  • Eat breakfast – the Prophet (SAW) ate dates before going out to prayer
  • Wear the best clothes you have
  • Apply fragrance/perfume
  • Say the general takbeerat after Fajr prayer
  • Walk to the mosque for Eid prayer – using a different route on the way back
  • Perform Eid prayer in congregation (where safe to do so and socially distanced)
  • Connect with friends and family (where safe to do so in person/virtually)
  • Exchange gifts

Make sure you give your Qurbani before Eid prayer in order to not miss out!

Donate Qurbani now and make your sacrifice.
