Indian takeaway invites community to celebrate Eid festival




Indian takeaway invites community to celebrate Eid festival

An Indian take-away in Downend hosted a free community event with family, friends and customers to celebrate the famous Eid festival.

Rajastan & Royal in Westbourne Road invited people to join them for a feast of colourful curries and sweets.

Manager Raj Tarafdar said: “It was great to mark the occasion with a range of people, including some of our neighbours who happened to be passing by.

“We are encouraged to be especially friendly and reach out to one another during this period. We like to wish one another Eid Mubarak, which means blessed feast.

Feast of sacrifice 

Eid al-Adha, also known as the Greater Eid, is the second Eid celebration in the Islamic calendar and means the ‘feast of sacrifice’.

Eid al-Fitr, ‘festival of breaking of the fast, is the first - marking the end of Ramadan and around 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting.

EID al-Adha signals the end of Hajj, the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, bringing Muslims from around the world together.

The event commemorates the Islamic belief around prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his first born son, Ishmael, for Allah - but his son was then replaced with a lamb.

It is similar to the Christian and Jewish stories in which God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac (the younger son), but spared him from doing so.

Tradition

The occasion is traditionally marked with the religious sacrifice (Qurbani) of a healthy sheep, goat or cow. The meat is usually divided into three parts – for family, friends and those in need.

The celebration typically lasts for four days and takes place during the final month of the Islamic calendar, which is lunar and so the date changes each year.

As the name would suggest, food is an important part of the celebration. Rajastan & Royal prepared ‘Biye barir chicken roast,’ a speciality often served at weddings, Eid and other exclusive occasions.

The team served a range of meat and vegetarian dishes, rounded off with sweet food. Kheer is one of India’s best known milk desserts and is popular for festivities such as Diwali and Eid.
