Eid ul-Adha


According to Islamic teaching, Eid ul-Adha is the Festival of Sacrifice, also known as the Greater Eid, the second most important festival in the Muslim calendar. The Major Festival and the Greater Eid, is an important 3-day religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honor the willingness of ʾIbrāhīm (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ismā'īl (Ishmael) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a sheep to sacrifice instead.
