The beautiful day has again arrived i.e. Bakra Eid also known as Eid-ul-Adha. It is an important festival celebrated by Muslims across the world. It is also considered holier among two Eids, Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha. It is celebrated on at the end of Hajj. Hajj is a yearly pilgrimage to Mecca which Muslims are required to embark on once in their live.
God had once asked Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice the dearest thing to him to prove his love and faith, the Prophet decided to sacrifice his only son. However, when he was about to kill his son, God sent his angel Jibra’il (Gabriel) to replace the son with a goat. And so, since that day Bakra Eid is celebrated to remember Prophet Ibrahim’s faith in God. The festival is celebrated by sacrificing a male goat. The meat is divided into three portions; the first part is given to relatives, friends and neighbours; the second to the poor and needy; the third is for the family.
The world is celebrating Eid-Ul-Adha, I wish very happy Eid to every single person.
