Happy Eid Mubarak
Happy Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim students and staff who will be celebrating Eid ul Adha on Friday the 1st of September, a celebration which marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. During the celebration Muslims celebrate Ibrahim's complete obedience to the will of God and remind themselves of their own willingness to serve Allah’s (god’s) wish. Muslims around the world will remember the hungry at this time and share food so that the poor can also enjoy a good feast on this day.
A special congregational prayer to commence the celebration will take place in the Faith Centre at 8am on the 1st September, after which feasting starts with family and friends.
Following on from the success of previous years an Eid festival will be held on campus when new and returning students arrive later in September. Full details will be announced soon.
