A little party never hurt nobody — especially if it’s an Eid celebration. Even despite the fact that it’s late August and most students still haven’t returned from their home cities and countries, and many people left for vacation, plenty of believers attended the Eid al-Adha festivities at “Alraid” Islamic Cultural Centres.
In Kyiv, about 4,500 people gathered for a festive prayer, so the yard was pretty overcrowded.
Yet, the kids did have plenty of space to run around and play, for most of the men soon left to either organize or perform the sacrifice on their own.
The same scheme worked for every ICC: the little ones (supervised by their mothers and older siblings) enjoyed contests, games, gifts and treats, while most of their daddies left to either organise or perform the sacrifice.
