12 September, 2018 · Sacrifice & Charity virtues honored by Oakians in the spirit of Eid-ul-Adha
The Latin term “sacrificium” usually implies "doing without something" or "giving something up". Charity is an act of kindness and benevolence by 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 – they penned down their thoughts on topics ‘Eesar aur Qurbani ka matlab’,’Eid kay din main ney zaroratmandon ki madad ki aur unhain …’; “Eid ul Adha par Qurbani ki Ahmiat”, ”Eid-ul-Adha qurbani ka din hai kyon k….”, “Agar hum Eid k moqa par gharibon ki madad karna chor dain tow….”, “Eid-ul-Adha par qurbani ka mutlab sirf janwar zibah karna Nahin balqay….” and “Islam main Aisar aur Qurbani ki Ahmiat…”. Oakians came in Eid dresses and shared their lunch. Pupils of pre-school took part in the Show and Tell activity as well.
