07 September, 2017 · Charity Day Celebrated @ Silver Oaks
Oakians remember Sacrifice & Charity as Eid-ul-Adha Arrives:
The Latin term “sacrificium” usually implies "doing without something" or "giving something up". Charity is an act of kindness and benevolence through giving voluntary help, monetary or otherwise, to those in need - an institution, a single person or a group of people. On the occasion of Eid ul Adha (Islamic Festival of Sacrifice), affluent Muslims all over the world perform the Sunnah of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) by sacrificing an animal with the meat distributed in three equal shares - one part is distributed amongst the poor; the second part is distributed amongst the relatives, while the third part is retained for own use. This is an opportune time in the Islamic Year to remind ourselves of these universal humanitarian virtues – sacrifice & charity. Around this theme, Oakians undertook creative writing in the Urdu language - Grade1 to 3 wrote on “Eid kay din app gharibon ki madad kaisay kar sakaty hain?; Grade 4-5 covered ‘Eesar aur Qurbani ka matlab” while Grades 6-8 penned down their thoughts on “Eid ul Adha par Qurbani ki Ahmiat”. Pupils of pre-school enjoyed the orange color day with story presentation activity.
