Today, Muslims all over the world celebrates Eid’l Adha which corresponds to the 10th day of Dhul al-Hijjah, the last month in the Hijrah Calendar (Islamic). The ocassion of Eid’l Adha is very important to the Muslims. It commemorates the greatest act of obedience and faith exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (Alayhis Salaam) or Abraham in the Bible. This is the culmination of the Hajj rituals which is 5th in the pillars of Islam. Muslims who can afford to perform the Hajj are required to do it at least once in their lifetime. However, those who cannot afford it God will not hold them accountable. Based on the Sunnah (Tradition) of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) Eid’l Adha prayer commences earlier than the Eid’l Fitr congregation. In the Philippines, majority of the Eid congregations start their prayer around 7:00 o’clock in the morning.
