Eid Mubarak

{chicken quacker soup}
{macarona with chicken}

Today Muslims worldwide were fasting due to it being the day of Arafa. The Day of Arafa (Arabic: يوم عرفة) is an Islamic Holy Day, in which it is said that the religion had been perfected. It is the second day of the Hajj pilgrimage and the day after it is the major Islamic Holiday of Eid ul-Adha. At dawn of this day, Muslim pilgrims will make their way from Mina to a nearby hillside and plain called Mount Arafa and the Plain of Arafa. It was from this site that Muhammad (Salla llahu Alayhi Wasalam) gave his famous Farewell Sermon in his final year of life. It is said that a believer who fasts on this day expiates for the past year’s sins and the sins for the year coming.

My family and I went to my in-laws house to break our fast and my mother in law made an amazing spread. This is a typical meal that we would break our fast with during Ramadan. I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday, Eid Mubarak.

    Belated Eid Mubarak to you! Masha Allah, everything on the table looks delicious! I would like to try the Chicken-quaker soup. It looks exactly like the soup I had at a friendly host’s place in Jeddah back in 2003, while we were there to perform out Umrah. I would apreciate it if you share your recipe with me:)
