EID Ul adha Eid ul Adha is an Islamic festival. It is also called "FESTIVAL OF SACRIFICE". It is a festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to follow Allah's (God) command to sacrifice his son. It is the second most important festival of Islam and it is celebrated in the month of hajj on the 10th of Zilhajj after all the pilgrims to Makkah have performed the obligatory events.
According to the Belief of the Muslims, Allah asked Ibrahim (A.S) to sacrifice his son Ismail (A.S) for His sake, and even though he loved his son a lot and was a good man, his devotion and faith for Allah was so strong that he did not hesitate to take this bold step and agreed to sacrifice his son as per Allah's command. The willingness of Ibrahim (A.S) to sacrifice his son for the sake of Allah caused Allah to spare his son's life, and therefore a lamb was sacrificed in his place. This was a miracle of Allah and it proved that He the almighty has command over all things and the known and the unknown. It is because of this holy act taken place in the History of Islam that the Muslims every year celebrate Eid ul Adha to earn Allah's blessings and forgiveness. "It is neither amimal's meat nor their blood that reaches Allah the Almighty, it is your piety that reaches Him." (Qur'an 22:37) This depicts that Allah has nothing to do with the meat or the blood of animals that we sacrifice on the day of Eid. It is just the piety of the Muslims offering the sacrifice that is observed by Allah. Sacrifice basically infers a willingness to make sacrifices in our lives in order to stay on the true and straight Allah's path. A true Muslim who has got a firm belief in Allah tries to follow all his creators' commands obediently and sincerely. It is the purity of faith, the strength of heart, and a willing obedience that our lord requires from us.
