Abida Mia provides meat to hundreds of  underprivileged families on ocassion of Eid al-Adha in Shire Valley

Abida Mia, who is also legislator for Chikwawa-Nkombezi, conducted the distribution of meat in collaboration with the World Muslim League.

“This Eid, we must remember those who are displaced and poverty-stricken,”  she said.

On Eid al-Adha, one of the two main yearly Muslim holidays, people who can afford to slaughter an animal do so and distribute most of the meat to the needy, neighbors and relatives – a practice that begun during the time of prophet Abraham.

 

During his time, Prophet Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Ismail, but he was later shown a sign of mercy and given an animal to sacrifice instead.

Eid al-Adha coincides with Hajj, a major muslim pilgrimage held in Mecca.
