Eid al Adha also known as Id ul Adha is an important Muslim festival, celebrated on the 10th day of the Dhu al Hijiah. It is a festival commemorating the willingness of Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his only son Ishmael as Allah’s command. Many Muslims all over the world celebrate with prayers, offerings, and greetings.
Eid al adha is the second Eid celebration as the first one is Eid al fitr. This festival begins with the traditional sunnah prayer and the celebration last for four days. On Eid ul adha, muslims sacrifice a goat or sheep and share the animal meat with neighbors, friends, relatives, and the poor. That’s why, Eid al adha also called the “Festival of Sacrifice.”
As part of the Eid observance, government offices, banks, and businesses closed for the holiday or reduced their operating hours to participate in prayer meetings occurring throughout the Islamic states and areas in other Muslim countries. Non-Christians countries with large Muslim population, also suspend business operation as the festival also marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage.
When Is Eid Al Adha
This 2013, Eid al adha, falls on the month of October. Muslims on Eid al adha will make an effort to pray and visit the mosque to listen to the sermon. They will also visit relatives, friends, and wear new clothes to celebrate the special holiday. Some Muslim families also purchase animal like goat or sheep for sacrifice, a practice started by Abraham. The people also do charity work during Eid al adha, and of course, Muslims travel to Saudi Arabia to visit the Mecca to perform the hajj. The annual Hajj pilgrimage is a very important tradition, which is why some people save just to join the hajj pilgrimage.
By the way, Eid ul adha is a public holiday in predominantly Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Indonesia, Turkey, and other countries. However, non-Muslims country such as the Philippines also declares Eid ul adha a holiday to allow brothers in faith to pray ceaselessly.
