What is Eid al-Adha?

Eid al-Adha

Eid al-adha is known as the festival of sacrifice. It is one of the important Islamic festivals. This occurs on the 10th day of the lunar month of Zul-Hijja. This festival is also the finishing act of pilgrimage in Makkah. It is celebrated in the honor of the faith of Prophet Abraham by sacrificing animals like camels, goats and sheep in the path of ALLAH. The meat obtained from this is divided into three sections. One is for oneself, the other is for relatives and friends and the third one is for the needy and the poor. The festival of Eid al-adha is celebrated despite the fact that one is observing pilgrimage or not.
