Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى‎ 'Īdu l-'Aḍḥā) "Festival of Sacrifice" or "Greater Eid" is celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of the Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) (SA) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah (God). Eid is also about spending time with family and enjoying the fact that we all have food and a roof over our heads.

The CML asks school officials to be flexible since the Muslim community at Duke is international and very diverse. Some may recognize the listed holidays on slightly different dates. Others may have important religious holidays not listed on this calendar.
