The story of Eid Ul Adha states that the prophet Ibrahim was sleeping when Allah commanded in his dream and asked him to sacrifice his son, Isma’il, as an act of obedience to God. But he also had a dream in which the Devil appeared and tempted him to disobey God to save his son. But, just as Ibrahim was about to kill his son, Allah intervened and sent Angel Gabriel with a lamb to sacrifice rather. Moreover, this story of Eid Al Adha is mentioned in the Islamic Holy Book – Quran.

The Bakra Eid or Eid Ul Adha is celebrated by people all across the world. Muslims sacrifice a sheep, goat, or animal, and then the meat is distributed equally among family, friends, and the poor or less fortunate. To be martyred, the animal must be in excellent condition and over a certain age, and it must be done in a halal and Islamic manner. 

Eid Al Adha begins with people going to the mosque to pray and thank Allah for his blessings and protection. They wear new clothes and also visit their relatives’ homes to share good times and food, as well as to give charity to the poor. People spread and share happiness with everyone on Bakra Eid. 

Furthermore, Eid belongs to everyone, which means that it is more than just buying and wearing new clothes and hosting lavish feasts, but it is also about considering the needs of the impoverished class without excluding them because of their religion, or caste, or creed. Bakra Eid promotes treating the less fortunate with the same love and dignity by sharing love, food, and money with them.

So, on the last day of Hajj, Muslims celebrate Eid Ul Adha. It takes place once a year and is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is said that all healthy and physically fit Muslims should visit Makkah at least once. Pilgrims come to Makkah to regenerate and restore their faith in Allah.  Pilgrims gather in front of a shrine built by Ibrahim to praise and thank Allah.
