What is the significance of Eid al-Adha?

This feast falls on the 10th day of Dhul Hijjah and is the concluding act of pilgrimage taking place in Makkah. This feast is in honour of the Prophet Ibrahim’s (AS) faith. Sacrificing animals such as camels, goats and sheep in the path of Allah (SWT) recognises his trial when his faith was tested regarding his willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail (AS). It’s a public holiday in all Muslim majority countries.

How do Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha?

Eid al-Adha starts with Muslims going to the mosque for prayers. They dress in their best clothes and thank Allah for all the blessings they have received. It is a time when they visit family and friends. Muslims will also give money to charity so that poor people can celebrate too.

In the evening, a traditional meal to commemorate Eid al-Adha would be eating lamb that has been sacrificed or bought from a butcher or supermarket. The lamb is usually cut into three: one to keep; the second for family and friends and the third for the needy and the poor.
