Mohawk Trail

The Masjid (place of pray) had a fieldtrip to Mohawk Trail on 11/7, it’s about an hour drive from where I live…  which means I had to get ready at 6am even though I didn’t sleep the night before. Anyway I had to ride on a bus with 60 other people… ahh fun time’s lol I didn’t even have breakfast before hand, but overall I had a good time and hiked 4miles in 2hours and got a few good laughs along the way.

Smith College Eid al-Adha Dinner

What is Eid al-Adha

At the end of the Hajj (annual pilgrimage to Mecca), Muslims throughout the world celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). In 2010, Eid al-Adha will begin on approximately November 16th, and will last for three days

What else do Muslims do to celebrate the holiday?

On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter.
