Amaal To Perform for Eid Al-Adha
Eid Al-Adha, often called the “Festival of Sacrifice,” is one of the most significant events in the Islamic calendar.
In this blog, we’re going to look at the date for Eid Al-Adha in 2023 and some of the best Amaal to perform on this day!
When is Eid Al-Adha in 2023?
If we go according to the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid Al-Adha is expected to be observed on Thursday, the 29th of July in 2023. However, the exact date may vary based on the sighting of the moon.
What are the Best Amaal for Eid Al-Adha as Recommended by Ahlul Bayt?
Amaal for Eid Al-Adha goes beyond mere ritualistic practices. They’re also a manifestation of deep-rooted faith and devotion to Allah, as taught by Ahlul Bayt, the family of Prophet Muhammad.
Here are some of the best amaal to perfom on Eid-Al-Adha.
Subsequently, it is recommended to perform Ghusl, a full-body ritual purification bath.
Prior to this, believers recite a prayer, declaring their belief in Allah and their commitment to follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)..
|O Allah, believing in Thee, fully aware of Thy Book, following the way of life of Thy Prophet Muhammad, Allah’s blessings be on him and on his children, (I take bath).
|allahumma emanan bika wa tasdedan bikitabika wattiba`a sunnati nabiyyika muhammadin salla allahu `layhi wa alihi
|اللّهُمّ إِيمَاناً بِكَ وَتَصْدِيقاً بِكِتَابِكَ وَاتّبَاعَ سُنّةِ نَبِيّكَ مُحَمّدٍ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ.
Upon completion of the Ghusl, another prayer is recited, asking Allah to allow you to make amends for your wrongdoings and purify their faith.
Then recite Bismillaah and start making Ghusl, after finishing ghusl, recite this
|O Allah let me make amends and compensate for my wrong doings, (so that) my religion becomes pure and O Allah remove the dirt from me.
|allahumma ij`alhu kaffarattan lidhunube wa tahhir dene allahumma adh-hib `anniya alddanasa
|اللّهُمّ اجْعَلْهُ كَفَّارَةً لِذُنُوبِي وَطَهّرْ دِينِي. اللّهُمّ أَذْهِبْ عَنّي الدّنَس
Commence the Day with Salat
Beginning the day with Salat (prayers) is one of the highly recommended Amaal for Eid Al-Adha and it’s seen as an expression of gratitude and an invocation of divine blessings.
Special Du’as: A Connect to the Divine
Special supplications or Du’as are also an integral part of the Amaal for Eid Al-Adha.
These heartfelt prayers serve as a conduit to seek divine mercy, blessings, and forgiveness.
One such example is the Ziyarat of Imam Hussein (AS) to be recited on the day of Eid.
Recitation of Takbir
Reciting the Takbir (Allahu Akbar, meaning God is the Greatest) is another Amaal for this festival.
The Takbir is usually recited after the confirmation of the sighting of the moon until the start of the Eid prayer. This act is a form of glorifying Allah SWT and expressing gratitude for His blessings.
Visit the Needy and the Sick
Visiting the needy, the sick, and the elderly is a highly valued practice during Eid Al-Adha, it’s an act of kindness that strengthens community bonds and ensures that everyone can partake in the joy of the festival.
Fast the Day of Arafah
Last, but certainly not least we have fasting. While not mandatory, fasting on the Day of Arafah, the day before Eid Al-Adha is highly recommended, as it is believed that this fast expiates the sins of the past and the coming year!
