The Eid al-Adha or Eid el-Kebir is the most important Muslim feast. It is also called Tabaski in the west and central African countries. According to history, Tabaski commemorates the enslavement of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), who was commanded by God to sacrifice a sheep. This religious festival gives us the opportunity to meet our family members and loved ones. Moreover, it is about sharing and generosity to the poor and needy.
The month of Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. During this one any good Muslim must fast all day until sunset. Towards the end of this blessed month, a special night called the Night of Destiny among Muslims is celebrated by the whole community. Baraka was no exception to the rule.
