Giving Qurbani with Islamic Relief Canada

The Eid ul Adha Market is tomorrow! 

For the first time ever Square One will be celebrating Eid ul Adha. This market is made possible due to our amazing sponsors ensuring our community has lasting memories of Eid.

Eid ul Adha is about remembering to trust and celebrate God while sharing time with our loved ones. For many, celebrating Eid ul Adha with family, friends and food is not an option. This is a sad reality and an important reminder on these days of Dhul Hijjah.

Our amazing charity sponsor, Islamic Relief, believes that all families should be able to enjoy Eid the same way we do. By making a donation to the many programs Islamic Relief supports, including the Qurbani and Udhiya program, you are ensuring that families will receive support, such as food and meat to sustain themselves and their family.

Qurbani or Udhiya refers to a sacrifice that is made to bring one closer to God during Eid ul Adha. You can fulfill this by sacrificing some of your wealth to Islamic Relief’s Qurbani and Udhiya program and by giving to vulnerable families around the world.

Last year, Islamic Relief’s Qurbani and Udhiya program allowed for over 3 million people to enjoy Eid alongside their loved ones all around the world.  The people receiving meat from donations are often widows, elderly, orphaned children, people with disabilities, refugees, and those living amongst conflict. Canadian families are also the recipients of the Qurbani and Udhiya program and this ensures families in our own neighbourhood are taken care of, as well.

You can donate your Qurbani and Udhiya through Islamic Relief here or visit their booth and speak directly to their team at the Eid ul Adha Market from Thursday August 8th to Sunday August 11th, 2019.

Thank you to Islamic Relief for supporting the Eid ul Adha Market and the Ramadan Market, and for all your efforts to ensure Muslim families around the world receive the support they need!

Plan Your Visit to the Eid ul Adha Market

We are so excited to see you all at the Eid ul Adha Market in a few days. Here are a few ideas to make the most of your visit:

Visiting with Your Kids

i-KqLg2Fd-X3.jpg
  • I suggest parking at the Food District, P6. Take the escalators up to the 2nd floor and walk towards H&M and The Gap, where you’ll see the Eid ul Adha market in full swing!

  • Before you do anything, take a family pic at the photo booth! Tag #SQ1Eid and @muslimmarket.co :)

  • Grab your child a delicious cookie as a snack from Crispy Cravings. When he or she asks for more snacks (inevitable), you can visit Halal Meals or Secret Lands Farm.

  • If you’re visiting on a weekday, visit the Share the Khair booth so your child can get their Hajj Passport. Complete the passport for a prize!

  • If you’re visiting on the weekend, make sure you visit the Candy Crates cotton candy booth for free cotton candy.

  • Get your henna done. Kids can get their henna done, too!

  • Get a mini manicure for yourself and your kiddos at our sponsors, Tuesday in Love.

  • Teach your child about charity at the Islamic Relief booth and give some sadaqah on behalf of your family.

Spending more time at Square One? Check out the Food District for some kid favorites like Del Moro’s Pasta (my kids love the #4 at Del Moro’s) and Sweet Jesus ice cream.

Visiting with Your Parents

  • Park at the Food District, P6, so you can get your parents chai from the Chai Shop in the Food District. If they’re coffee fans, check out Hale Coffee.

  • Take the escalator up to Level 2 and walk past H&M and The Gap to see the Eid ul Adha Market.

  • Grab a beautiful pic with your parents at the photo booth. Tag #SQ1Eid and @muslimmarket.co

  • Buy your mom some flowers from the Blossom Moments booth.

  • Grab a cookie from Crispy Cravings for that after chai snack.

  • Pick up some Eid money envelopes for your parents to give out eiddy in from Share the Khair or Also Sophia.

  • Get a mini manicure for yourself and your mom at our sponsors, Tuesday in Love.

  • Give some sadaqah on behalf of your parents at the Islamic Relief booth.

Once you’re done at the market, visit Holt Renfrew to try on some Charlotte Tillbury makeup, Jo Malone colognes, and of course, some designer shoes!

Visit Secret Lands Farm and Halal Meals at the market for some yummies to eat on the drive home.

Visiting with your #squad

  • Park in P6 or P7 near the new Indigo. Grab yourself a Starbucks and take the escalator to L2.

  • Visit our charity sponsor Islamic Relief and get your friends to sign up together to sponsor an orphan.

  • Grab some fall clothing from Infinitely Classic and Balbea and shop accessories at Black Orchid and Bauble Shop.

  • Finish up your Eid shopping at all of our amazing vendors.

  • Grab dinner at the Food District and don’t forget to indulge in some dessert, too!
