Dermawan Berqurban, Berkahnya Bahagiakan Dunia

"Ciid Wanaagsan" from Mogadishu!

21 August 2018

ACTNews, MOGADISHU – It was drizzling at the time of fajr, the morning prayer. It was truly a glimpse of blessings since rain had not fallen for weeks. The dry streets had been filled with nothing but dry dust.

On that day (8/21), by Allah’s Grace, it was raining.

The drizzle fell along with the chants of takbeerat, the chants of glorifying Allah, that had filled the air since the night before (8/20). Eid-ul-Adha in Mogadishu fell a day earlier than the Eid in Indonesia. On Tuesday (8/21) morning, the Global Qurban team for Somalia attended the Eid-ul-Adha prayer.

The drizzle didn’t last long, but it was enough to wash the streets and quench the dryness in Mogadishu. Shortly after that, the sky cleared, and the light of the morning sun was shining brightly upon every alley of Mogadishu.

Yousuf, a security guard, greeted us with the warmest Eid greetings. “Eid Mubarak, Brother! Eid Mubarak, Barakallah,” his voice echoed.

The happiness that filled Yousouf’s heart was reflected on every corner that we passed through. Before the Eid prayer started, every shop along the roads of Mogadishu were closed. Colorful headscarves, turbans and Somali long garments marked the joy that filled the holiday.

We moved to Al-Sahaba mosque in Hodan, western Mogadishu. It wasn’t yet 6:30 a.m. in the morning, yet the mosque was already crowded with worshippers, filling every rank in the men and women section with beautiful colors.

Muhammad Abdiraziq (35), a soldier, sat on the same rank as we did. He came to the mosque bringing his two beloved sons. According to him, the condition of Somalia has greatly improved on this Eid-ul-Adha.

“If I did nothing, this country would not change. I act and do something to guard this country and preserve the faith in every heart of the Somalis,” said Abdiraziq.

After the two units of prayer were performed, Mogadishu was filled back with exuberance. Amidst the dust on the roads, children ran around wearing their best Eid clothes.

Despite the 1.5 million Internally Displaced People (IDP), Eid-ul-Adha is still celebrated festively. “Eid-ul-Adha is our celebration. Every shop closes, but look, the city is still crowded. I am sure Somalia will get through this war. I am sure that Allah loves Somalia,” said Abdiraziq.

For Somalia, on first the day of Eid-ul-Adha, Global Qurban sacrificed at least 300 cows on two different locations, both in suburban Mogadishu.  

Although the condition of Somalia is annually improving, especially in its economic and security aspect, the humanitarian crisis in this country has not ended. More than two million Somalis have been displaced, 1.5 million of whom are internally displaced.

Ciid Wanaagsan! Happy Eid-ul-Adha from Mogadishu! []
