Known as Eid al-Adha, Eid ul Adha, Id-ul-Azha, Id-ul-Zuha, Hari Raya Haji, Greater Eid or Bakr-id; the ‘Feast of Sacrifice‘ is the most important feast of the Muslim calendar.
This festival is celebrated throughout the Muslim world as a commemoration of Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice everything for God. Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth and final month in the Islamic calendar. As the exact day is based on lunar sightings, the date may vary between countries.
Eid al-Adha concludes the Pilgrimage to Mecca. Eid al-Adha lasts for three days and commemorates Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to obey God by sacrificing his son. The same story appears in the Bible and is familiar to Jews and Christians. One key difference is that Muslims believe the son was Ishmael rather than Isaac as told in the Old Testament.
Eid ul Adha 2019 in Sudiarebiya
According to the Quran, Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son when a voice from heaven stopped him and allowed him to make something else as a ‘great sacrifice’. In the Old Testament, it is a ram that is sacrificed instead of the son.
In Islam, Ishmael is regarded as a prophet and an ancestor of Muhammad. During the feast of Eid Al Adha, Muslims re-enact Ibrahim’s obedience by sacrificing a cow or ram. The family will eat about a third of the meal a third goes to friends and relatives, and the remaining third is donated to the poor and needy. The giving of charity in the form of money, food or clothes to the homeless or poor is another key tradition of Eid al Adha.
Eid al-Adha is a time when Muslims remember the “almost sacrifice,” according to Islamic Scriptures, of Ishmael by Ibrahim on Mount Moriah in the vicinity of Mecca. God commanded Ibrahim to sacrifice Ishmael to test him, and he passed the test by being willing to obey even such an extreme command. But then God either changed Ishmael with a goat or commanded Ibrahim to stop and replace Ishmael with a healthy goat.
During Eid al-Adha, those who are financially able will slaughter an animal such as a sheep, goat or cow in remembrance of the sacrifice made by Ibrahim. A portion of the sacrificed animal is kept for a feast and the remainder is shared with the poorer individuals in the community.
Hajj is a five-day series of rituals completed while on pilgrimage to Mecca and nearby areas. Most Islamic activities have their origins and highest expression in the region of Saudi Arabia around Mecca, and Hajj especially so.
