    Today, Monday (June 17, 2024), international media revealed three problems facing Iraqis on Eid al-Adha, while confirming that this does not prevent Iraqis from living in the Eid atmosphere according to customs and traditions.
    The media reported, “Iraqis are welcoming Eid al-Adha this year in light of high temperatures, a decrease in the hours of electricity supply, and amid a sharp decline in the economic situation of most of them, but that does not prevent them from continuing to prepare for the celebration through special traditions that they adhere to, so they are keen to show Their ability to adapt to all circumstances. During the current Eid, the social solidarity among Iraqis is clearly evident, which they are keen on in accordance with what is stated in Sharia law, and in adherence to their inherited traditions, so many resort to providing financial and in-kind assistance, such as clothing and food supplies, to poor families.”
    Food trader Nizar Al-Amiri says, “The Iraqi market began preparing Eid purchases more than a month ago, and goods were transported from warehouses to markets in various governorates. Shopping traffic precedes Eid by a week, and increases between five and ten times over normal days, two days before the Arafat stand. According to regions, population density, and purchasing power of the population.”
    For his part, Khader Abbas (64 years old), who practices livestock breeding in Diyala Governorate (east), and has a long history in the profession and a well-known name in the livestock market and among its traders, confirms that “Eid Al-Adha is the season for livestock breeders, especially those who are famous for feeding their livestock with grass.” nature and taking care of it in fertile wild pastures.”
    Regarding the reason why Iraqis prefer to buy naturally fed livestock from pastures for sacrifices, Abbas says that “the livestock eat fresh grass directly from land free of chemical substances, and move around pastures that allow them to produce high-quality meat, and these livestock travel long distances as they graze for hours daily.” “It makes it healthier and free of diseases, which increases its market value.” He points out that the livestock market is active from the first days of slaughter until the last day, and he expects to sell all the livestock he has prepared this season.
    In general, everyone in Iraq prepared to celebrate Eid al-Adha some time before its arrival, and even those who own large electricity generators serve the needs of residential neighborhoods as an alternative solution to energy that witnesses major outages, especially during the summer. High temperatures exceed their normal levels, between 7 degrees and 11 degrees Celsius, and reach more than 50 degrees, which means an increase in the hours of power cuts due to high loads, so people rely more on private generators.
    Harith Jassim, who owns an electric generator in Baghdad, says, “We will try to coordinate to provide our customers with electricity in a way that will enable them to enjoy the Eid times without the inconveniences associated with high temperatures and the shortage of government electricity supply hours,” stressing that “all owners of private electric generators have prepared for the Eid period that “It requires more electricity to meet the needs of frequent family meetings and visits.”
    For his part, Shaker Hamed, a member of a charitable organization, says that “officials of humanitarian organizations, philanthropists, and supervisors of mosques are doing their utmost to make needy people of low income, vulnerable circumstances, and orphans live the days of Eid happily,” explaining that he “works with several people to help those in need, Especially during the holidays, by distributing sums of money, clothes, and other supplies, such as food supplies.”
    In addition, those who walk around the markets feel the commitment of Iraqis to the customs of welcoming Eid al-Adha with certain preparations, especially in the last week before the Arafat stand. 
    Firas Alwan, the owner of a large store that sells household supplies and gifts, says: “There is nothing that cannot be sold before Eid. These are happy days for everyone, and Iraqis are accustomed to giving generously during them, and very large spending shows joy and happiness on Eid days. The demand for everything increases from Decorative materials, perfumes, juices, nuts, sweets, and cake-making materials. He adds: “People buy everything that is eaten or used in the manufacture of food and drink, and everything related to decorations, beauty, and perfumes.”
    As for Fatima Saeed, who bought clothes worth one million and two hundred thousand Iraqi dinars ($900) for her 12 sons and daughters, she says: “Children are always the happiest on Eid, and they are the luckiest in purchases, as their gifts take the most attention to Eid preparations.” Then the rest of the equipment, these are our habits that we will not do without.”
    Financial capabilities determine how much Iraqi families spend on Eid supplies, while markets provide goods and materials at different prices depending on type. Riyad Issa, who works in delivering orders, says: “I bought all the Eid supplies, including clothes for me, my child, and my wife, for about 100,000 dinars ($76). The most important thing is that we rejoice and live the Eid days happily.”
