5 Tips To Make Your Eid al-Adha Gift Perfect

29 Aug

Eid al-Adha is one of the most popular Muslim festivals observed in the world. “Eid al-Adha” means “Festival of the Sacrifice,” it’s also known as the Greater Eid. The holiday is a holy time for prayer, sacrifice, generosity, and exchanging an Eid al-Adha gift or three with friends, family, and those in need.

During the celebration of Eid al-Adha (which starts on August 31st this year), Muslims commemorate and remember Prophet Abraham’s trials by slaughtering an animal (sheep, camel, or goat). Most of the meat is given away to friends and donated to the poor as an act of willingness to give up some bounties in life, to strengthen ties of friendship and help the needy.

But there are plenty of ways to share the bounty during Eid, and one of the most common is to send an Eid al-Adha gift. Need help with choosing one? The suggestions below will give you an idea of how to be generous during the Greater Eid.

Dog House Blues: 7 Ways To Say I’m Sorry

03 Aug

As much as we hate to admit it, we all make mistakes. The part of a mistake that defines you is not the mistake itself, but how you learn and grow from it. The very first thing to do, is apologize. It sounds obvious, but often people hope that the damage will either go unnoticed or be ignored. There’s not real healing if you don’t own up to the mistakes you’ve made, and no real growth if you hope that those around you will be too polite to say anything.

So how do you go about apologizing and making amends? It may sound like a silly question but what makes your apology feel sincere is intent and effort. If you put no thought into it, are you really remorseful? Are you really considering the other person (or people) if you’re just trying to get things over with as quickly as possible?
