Hosting for friends and family, preparing food, in celebration of Eid Al-Adha will surely keep every home busy, so here are some pointers we can share to make sure that this year’s celebration of reflection, repentance, and gratitude is a great one.
So how do we prepare our home for Eid Al-Adha? Let us find out!
How To Prepare Your Home For Eid Al-Adha
How To Prepare Your Home For Eid Al-Adha
1. Deep clean your kitchen
One of the main activities during this holiday is the animal sacrifice which symbolizes Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah. The meat is then shared with family, friends, and the less fortunate as a way of promoting unity and generosity. To ensure a clean and hygienic environment for this important ritual, kitchen deep steam cleaning is an essential part of the preparations. This not only ensures that the food is cooked in a clean space but also provides a sense of peace and mindfulness. As we gather with our loved ones to celebrate this important occasion, let us not forget the importance of cleanliness and the spirit of sharing that lies at the heart of this festival.
2. Dispose of things that are no longer needed
Do you keep empty plastic bottles around? Or perhaps you still keep plastic bags underneath the sink for “future purposes,” or so you might think, and the collection of them is growing by the day. If you do, maybe it is time to dispose of your collection of odd bits and or at the very least keep it at a reasonable amount. Things that you no longer need should not be kept around anymore, so if you still keep that chipped mug in the cupboard or the wooden spoon that has long split in half, it is finally time to say goodbye to them as you welcome your guests and a new chapter of yourself into your home.
3. Clean and organize your home
Preparing for Eid Al-Adha celebrations is more than just getting rid of clutter. It’s important to ensure that your home is clean and welcoming for your guests. This special occasion is about sharing blessings, reflecting, and coming together as a community.
As your loved ones visit your home, let Mangrove Services help you create a clean and peaceful oasis for your guests to enjoy. Our top-notch cleaning tools and expert services are guaranteed to leave your home sparkling. While cleaning, take the time to organize your storage spaces, ensuring everything is in the right place for a stress-free celebration. So, take out the fancy plates and cutlery and prepare to share the joy of this unforgettable day with your nearest and dearest.
4. Put your unneeded items to good use
In the spirit of Eid Al-Adha, sacrifice, and sharing charity, after setting aside items that you need to dispose of and seeing some items that you no longer need after organizing your home, you can put these unneeded items to good use by donating them. Eid Al-Adha is a day of repentance, but it is also a day for you to lend your hand to those in need and perform acts of charity. Besides giving a part of your sacrifice to the less fortunate, you can also lend them a hand in other ways.
When organizing your storage spaces, there are bound to be some items that are still in tip-top shape but no longer have a place in your home. How about that table that has been set aside in the corner and has been gathering dust, or that piece of clothing that has long been outgrown and has been stored in the closet for years now? These items can be something a family other than yours will need, and giving them away will surely be a deed to be grateful for. This way, not only were you able to dispose of the unneeded items in your home but you were also able to help others in the process.
5. Give your home a new look
As preparation for the festivities, redecorating your home and giving it a new look could be just what you need to set the festive energy. In light of the celebration and to set a joyful atmosphere for the guests, changing up the decorations in your home is definitely not a bad idea. When relatives and friends come for a visit, being welcomed by a vibrant, well-decorated, clean, and healthy haven will surely be something that they will appreciate. Having a warm and cozy home for your family and guests when welcoming the festival of sacrifice will definitely make this year’s celebration a remarkable one.
6. Prepare yourself
Once your home is ready, the last step of preparation lies with yourself. To welcome Eid al-Adha with open arms, be at peace with yourself and surrender yourself to Allah. At dawn on the first day of the holiday, you can welcome the day with a communal prayer, attend the mosque, and listen to the teachings of the Qur’an. On this day, seek for the forgiveness of your sins and engage in acts of charity. If you are to partake in a ritual sacrifice, distribute the animal’s flesh equally between your family, friends, neighbors, and the less fortunate. Buy yourself new clothes and dress in your best as you celebrate this important holiday. Lastly, enjoy the celebrations and have a happy Eid!
Preparing your home for the celebration of Eid Al-Adha goes beyond merely cleaning and tidying up your home. For the incoming festivities, there is a lot more to do than one would think. Welcoming guests into your home for the coming celebrations will definitely be a lot smoother if both you and your home are ready to receive them.
