Eid-al-Adha, also known as Bakrid, Bakhreid, Eid al-Adha, Eid-ul-Zuha, Eid Qurban, Qurban Bayarami, Greater Eid, and Eid-al-Kabeer, is a feast of sacrifice. It honors the obedience and devotion of Prophet Ibrahim towards Allah.

History of Eid-al-Adha

Thousands of years ago, Prophet Ibrahim had a dream where he was commanded by God to sacrifice his beloved son, Ismail (Ishmael).

It was a difficult test, but both father and son were ready to obey God’s command. Just as Ibrahim was about to sacrifice Ismail, God intervened and replaced him with a ram.

This symbolized unwavering devotion and trust. The story teaches us to surrender to God’s commands and prioritize faith above everything else.

Eid ul-Adha, also called the Festival of Sacrifice, is an important Islamic celebration observed by Muslims around the world. It honors Prophet Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) willingness to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God.

This festive occasion carries deep religious and cultural significance, fostering unity, compassion, and selflessness among the Muslim community.
