Edul Adhar is a celebration to mark the obedience of Prophet Ibrahim (SAW) to Allah. According to Islamic teaching, Prophet Ibrahim was commanded by Allah to sacrifice his only son Isaaka for Him. Out of obedience and faith, Prophet Ibrahim agreed to do it. However Allah gave him a ram in exchange for his son to make the sacrifice. Muslims across the world commemorate this holy day once in a year to reaffirm their faith and obedience to Allah. During the celebration, each household kills a ram or cow depending on its ability to celebrate with the neighborhood.

However, this year's event rather took a bloody diemension at Abuabo No. 2.

We continue to pray for the speedy recovery of the one who sustained injuries.
