EID AL ADHA is finally here – and millions of Muslims around the world are celebrating one of the holiest festivals in the Islamic calendar. Here are greetings, quotes and poems to commemorate the festival of Eid al Adha.
Eid al Adha began on Sunday, August 11 – with Muslims around the world celebrating the beginning of one of the holiest festivals in the Islamic calendar. This year, Eid al Adha – also known as Eid ul Adha – will run until Thursday, August 15. Also known as the “Festival of the Sacrifice”, Eid al Adha is the second holiest festival in the Islamic calendar, the first being Eid al Fitr. Eid al Adha lasts approximately four days, and Muslims gather to indulge in food, say prayers and give gifts to friends and family.
Eid al Adha commemorates the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah.
Allah asked Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, as a sign of his faith.
This is similar to the Christian and Jewish stories where God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac but saved him from doing so at the last moment.
Instead of Ishmael being sacrificed, a lamb was instead, which is why many Muslims sacrifice and eat lamb for Eid.
