Ileya Festival is the period for Muslim celebration with families and friends. It is called Eid-al-Adha, otherwise known as Eid-al-Kabir in Arabic, one of the relevant feasts in Islam. It is also known as the festival of rams, feast of sacrifice, season of love, triumph over adversity for Muslims. The meaning from Hausa layya meaning ”Eid al-Adha, sacrificing a ram” or ile (house) plus ”ya” (to be ready), literally ”the house is ready” or could arguably translates to ”ready for home”.
History has it, according to the Qur’an and the Bible, that this occasion originated from the days of Prophet Ibrahim, otherwise known as Abraham, who was called upon by God to sacrifice Ismaaeel, his only Son at a time, for the Almighty. The details are for another day.
As a tradition in hosting every last Wednesday of the month show, the Tenstrings Music Institute will be having a one2watch live music show from 6PM at the Lagos Frontline Entertainment Centre, Freedom Park Lagos. This edition accidentally turned out a coincidence, the Eid al Adha Celebration of the Muslim Festival of Ram ushering into the new Islamic Hijra Calendar 1444AH.
You should come and experience the celebration at the Park, with Music, Tour and Games.
