Moroccan Holidays: Eid el-Kebir
Eid el-Kebir is the most important holiday in Morocco, so in this podcast, you can learn the traditions behind Moroccan holidays. This is a holiday that is celebrated across all Muslim countries, since the story behind it started back in the Prophet Mohamed era, when Allah ordered Ibrahim to sacrifice his son to prove his obedience to him, but as he was about to do it, Allah put a sheep between his hands and spared Ibrahim’s son. In the podcast, you will learn about how poor families sometimes can’t afford a sheep, but it is so important to them that they will save up money throughout the year to be able to afford it, and how during this time, people turn their sheep’s skin into a rug.
