What is Eid al-Adha?

Eid al-Adha

Eid al-Adha (The Feast of Sacrifice) is one of the two main Islamic feasts (the other is Eid al-Fitr). This feast falls on the 10th day of the lunar month of Zul-Hijja and is the concluding act of pilgrimage taking place in Makkah. This feast is celebrated in honor of the Prophet Abraham's faith by sacrificing animals such as camels, goats and sheep in the path of Allah. The meat obtained from this sacrifice is divided into three portions of which one is for oneself, the other for family and friends and the third for the needy and the poor. The feast of Eid al-Adha is celebrated if one has made the pilgrimage or not.
