Eid-ul-Adha

 
   
 
Eid-ul-Adha - The Festival of Sacrifice which occurs 70 days after Eid-al-Fitr. Eid ul-Adha is the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar. It is to remember the time when Prophet Abraham was going to sacrifice his own son to prove obedience to God and marks the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca). It takes place on the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar.
Eid-ul-Adha is a feast of the sacrifice. Unblemished animals are sacrificed in commemoration of the ram substituted by God when Abraham was commanded to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, as a test of faith. Only a portion, usually one-third, of this animal’s meat is to be consumed by the family offering the sacrifice. The rest should be given to others or to the poor as Eid gifts.
Eid is generally greeted by saying two words that is ‘Eid Mubarak.’ These two words bring joy and excitement to kids and adults. Eid for kids is mostly for the gifts and Eid money called Eidee. Eid for kids is the time when the loved ones in the family such as parents and sibling exchange their Eid Gifts and Eidee . The joy and excitement gets doubled when the gifts are exchanged.
