Eid al-Adha, also known as Hari Raya Aidiladha or the Feast of the Sacrifice, is the day when worldwide Muslims celebrate the occasion when Allah appeared to Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as a sign of devotion.His son, Ishmael was not sacrificed at the end, instead he was stopped by Allah and a lamb was given as the sacrifice. This day celebrates the willingness of Ibrahim to put forward everything, even his son’s life on his devotion to Allah.
Eid al-Adha is a three-day celebration that starts on the 10th day of Zul-Hijja. However, Muslims will wait for the official announcement by the religious bodies in Mecca. On the first morning, Muslims all around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. After that, the slaughtering of sacrifices will follow.
