The festival of Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated for only one day, whereas Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated for about four days.
Eid-al-Adha festival marks and reverses the wish of Ibrahim (Abraham) To sacrifice his son to obey God’s command. According to the Quran, it is said that before Prophet Ibrahim or Ibrahim could sacrifice his son, God instead provided a ram for the sacrifice.
In memory of this, Muslims around the world sacrifice a goat and divide it into three parts: one-third is given to the poor and needy; Another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; And the remaining third stays with the family.
Food is fed to the poor and needy, giving them a substantial share. Delicious food items and dishes are prepared at home and the guests are welcomed.
Eid Mubarak to those celebrating the special day!
