Eid-ul-Adha is almost here. While some countries are observing the ‘Eid of sacrifice’ on July 31, some are witnessing it on August 1. Eid-ul-Adha marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage, one of the most important religious observances in Islam.

What is Eid-ul-Adha?

This four-day festival holds pronounced importance as it is the Eid of Sacrifice. It dates back to the time when Allah asked Prophet Ibrahim in his dream to sacrifice his son, Ismail. As it was the test to his faith, he was ready to sacrifice his son for Allah. Just before, Prophet Ibrahim was ready to exhibit unwavering loyalty to Allah, He told Ibrahim that he had fulfilled Allah’s vision and replaced his son with a lamb to sacrifice instead.

Why and how is Eid-ul-Adha celebrated?

Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-ul-Adha as a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice everything for Allah. Those who can afford and the ones in the pilgrimage re-enact Prophet Ibrahim’s obedience by sacrificing a ram, cow, sheep, or a camel. Meat is distributed equally between households, relatives, and the underprivileged.

Performance of Hajj this season

Hajj

Performance of Hajj which precedes Eid-ul-Adha has been largely affected because of the coronavirus pandemic. Around 2.5 million pilgrims visit Makkah every year to perform Hajj.  But this year, Saudi Arab authorities have limited it to only 10,000 pilgrim participation and that too from within the Kingdom.
