Eid al-Adha marks the end of the annual pilgrimage of Hajj and is considered to be one of the holiest festivals in Islam.

Festival dates are determined by the sighting of the moon and the lunar calendar. This year, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated on August 21 and 22.

It translates to ‘festival of the sacrifice’, and refers to Abraham or Ibrahim who was ready to sacrifice the life of his son at the command of Allah. After testing Abraham’s devotion, God switched the object of his sacrifice to a sheep. This is why the day is called as Bakra Eid.

Muslims symbolically sacrifice goats and other animals to pay respect to Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son. The meat is distributed among friends and family.



Here are some of the best messages and quotes that you can share with family and friends to mark the occasion:

* As you offer your prayers on Eid-ul-Adha, I hope that the true spirit of this auspicious occasion fills your heart with happiness and good cheer. Have a blessed Eid-ul-Adha.

* May Allah shower countless blessings upon you and your family. Keep me in your prayers. Happy Eid al-Adha 2018.

Guides you to the right path
