Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, is one of Islam’s most important holidays. The holiday begins on the 10th day of the Muslim month of Dhul-Hijja, the last month in the Islamic calendar. It signifies the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail as ordered by God. Usually lasting four days and is celebrated by millions of Muslims yearly. This Eid is a time for Muslims worldwide to celebrate the end of the hajj (pilgrimage), a journey to Mecca that is required of all able-bodied Muslims at least once in their lifetime.
As part of the celebrations, Muslims slaughter a sheep and divide the meat among family and friends. They come together for large meals and exchange gifts. Also, they give food to the less fortunate. This act of charity is an essential part of the holiday and helps ensure everyone can enjoy the festivities.
Today, we live in a fast-paced society where we are constantly busy with work and everyday responsibilities. Unfortunately, many of us will not find the time to spend it with the people that we love. During Eid, people are encouraged to be joyful and come together as a community.
