What is Eid ul-adha?
Eid ul-adha is the second Eid celebration of the year, the first being Eid al-Fitr which took place in May.
The celebration of Eid ul-adha, which is considered to be the holier of the two Eids, is to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to Allah, who was willing to sacrifice his son, Ismail.
At the point of sacrifice, Allah replaced Ismail with a ram, which was to be sacrificed in place of his son.
The original command from Allah was a test of Prophet Ibrahim’s commitment to obey his Lord’s command, without question.
Therefore, Eid ul-adha means the festival of sacrifice. This event is mentioned in the Quran, the Islamic Holy Book.
When is Eid ul-adha this year?
The day of Eid ul-adha falls on the tenth day in the twelfth and final month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar, Dhu-al-Hijjah.
The day on which celebrations for Eid-ul-adha falls is dependent on a legitimate sighting of the moon, following the completion of the Holy Pilgrimage of Hajj – an annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the holiest city for Muslims.
