What is Eid al Adha / Feast of Sacrifice?
Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is one of the two major Islamic holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide. It commemorates the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God’s command. According to Islamic tradition, as Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son, Allah provided a ram to be sacrificed instead.
Eid al-Adha is celebrated on the 10th day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah, which is the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. The celebration lasts for four days and is marked by various rituals and activities. Muslims who can afford it sacrifice an animal, typically a sheep, goat, cow, or camel, following the example of Ibrahim. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts: one-third is shared with family and friends, one-third is given to the needy, and one-third is kept for personal consumption.
Eid al-Adha is a time of prayer, reflection, and gratitude. Muslims attend special congregational prayers at mosques or prayer grounds, listen to sermons, visit family and friends, exchange gifts, and enjoy festive meals together. The holiday is also an occasion for acts of charity and helping those in need.
Please note that the specific date of Eid al-Adha may vary each year as it depends on the sighting of the moon, so it’s recommended to consult an official source or a reliable Islamic calendar for the accurate date of Eid al-Adha for a particular year.
