Happy Eid 2011: The Hajj Live

Happy Eid to all Muslims around the globe on the occasion of the Eid Al-Adha.

YouTube in cooperation with the ministry of culture and information in Saudi Arabia launched a channel with live broadcast for Hajj rituals. The channel airs the broadcast of the Quran Karim channel from Saudi TV. You can watch it here and enjoy the rituals of Hajj.

The Hajj rituals

I think as Egyptian the Hajj rituals can be very special to us because we got the Al Safa and Al Marwa representing what our Egyptian lady Hagar did from thousand of years in the Holy land while she was searching for water for baby Ismail. It is important lesson for those who real understand.

I hope our pilgrims pray for Egypt to complete its revolution successfully , I hope our pilgrims pray for the Arab world especially Syria and Yemen.

Happy Eid to Egyptian chronicles readers , may you spend it happily with your family.

Insh Allah next year we will celebrate it with civil elected parliament and president as well a constitution that suits Egypt.


  1. What's inside that big square thing? Can you go inside?

  2. The Kaaba I mean. OK, I read the Wikipedia article. Not just anyone can go inside. Twice a year they let honored dignitaries inside to mop the place up with rosewater.

  3. I had pictures for the internal room

  4. Z, what does it look like inside?

    Eid mabrook to you Zeinobia and to all Egyptians. Eid al-Adha commemorates a sacrifice that is common to all Jews, Muslims and Christians.

    May Egypt find the right way to a peaceful future, may all Egyptians live in freedom and enjoy prosperity.


  6. @Jason: Although you are kafeer, here you go:

  7. The sacrifice of Isaac was a Jewish story for 2000 years, before Mohammmad was ever born.

  8. @The Islamist -- Very interesting! Thank you. I bet those Aladdin's magic lamps hanging from the ceiling would fetch a pretty penny at the Antiques Roadshow. Just kidding ;)

  9. There are two very beautiful paintings of the "Sacrifice of Isaac," both ascribed to Caravaggio from circa 1600 AD. Muslims who like to walk on the wild side can google them.
