The Story Behind Eid Ul Adha that you didn't Know

Muslims all around the globe commemorate Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice, as a significant festival. The majority of Muslims will attend special prayers performed in and throughout the world at various prominent mosques and Islamic institutes. Muslims generally buy new outfits and exchange presents while entertaining their youngsters and taking a day off from school.


The "Feast of Sacrifice," or Eid al-Adha, commemorates the Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as Allah had commanded. Millions of Muslims across the world celebrate one of Islam's most significant festivals, which lasts three to four days. Worshippers in Mecca visit the Grand Mosque's Ka'bah shrine, Islam's most sacred landmark. Pilgrims also pay a visit to the Jamarat Bridge in Mecca, where Ibrahim is said to have hurled stones at the devil. Because they are based on the Islamic lunar calendar, the dates of both festivals shift every year.


The last day of the Hajj pilgrimage, which takes place in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, is Eid al-Adha. The holiday of Eid al-Fitr commemorates the conclusion of Ramadan, when Muslims fast for a month from sunrise to sunset. Outside of Saudi Arabia, the epidemic has prohibited Muslims from participating in the trip, and restrictions have prevented Muslims from meeting at mosques for collective prayers. Muslims can still celebrate Eid with their family and carry out their religious obligations.
