“On the canvas of life, we often go off colour, but as long as people like you are there to add the right shades, life goes on to be a rainbow! Eid Mubarak.”
Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is one of the most important celebrations in the Islamic calendar, a time for family gatherings, feasting and gift-giving. Exquisite food served with care exists at the heart of the celebrations.
During Eid al-Adha, families gather together to share a meal, often including lamb, beef or goat, which is traditionally served on gold or silver platters. These platters are often intricate designed and decorated with precious tones and patterns that represent the rich cultural heritage of the Muslim world - and gold and silver utensils are often used to serve food and drinks, adding to the splendour of the occasion.
The use of gold and silver tableware during Eid al-Adha goes beyond aesthetics - these precious metals have a significant symbolic and spiritual value in Islamic culture. Gold and silver are mentioned numerous times in the Quran - and they are associated with prosperity. Using gold and silver tableware during Eid al-Adha is seen as a way to express gratitude for the blessings that have been bestowed upon the family, and to invoke further blessings for the future.
In addition to being used to frame the meal, you may also find gold and silver among the gifts given during Eid al-Adha, where it’s customary for friends and family members to exchange gifts to express their love and appreciation for one another.
