Eid-ul-Adha also popularly known as Bakrid is a significant festival celebrated by Muslims. It is one of the two Eids which are celebrated by Muslims; the other Eid being Eid al-Fitr. However, Eid-ul-Adha is said to be holier of the two festivals.
The festival marks the end of Hajj for Muslims; Hajj is an annual pilgrimage to Mecca, which Muslim devotees are required to take once in their life. Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated with devotion by Muslims across the world. Bakrid is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah. Eid-ul-Adha is also known as Bakrid or Sacrifice Feast as it is a day to remember the great sacrifice Prophet made for God which shows his faith and devotion in the almighty.

Eid-ul-Adha: History and significance

The story behind Eid-ul-Adha is that God once told his friend Prophet Ibrahim, the father of Prophet, to sacrifice a thing which is dearest to him to prove his love and faith in God. And so, Prophet Ibrahim decided to sacrifice his only son Ismail on God’s command. When Prophet was about to sacrifice his son, God sent Jibra’il (Gabriel) and intervened.

God’s angel Jibra’il (Gabriel) replaced Prophet’s son with a goat and so from that day, Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated by sacrificing a male goat. The animal is divided into three portions and these are then distributed– the first part is given to relatives, neighbours and friends; the second part is given to the needy and poor; while the third is reserved for the family.

Eid-ul-Adha or Bakrid is generally celebrated for three days. Muslim devotees across the world begin the day by visiting a local mosque and offering their prayers to Allah asking for peace, prosperity and blessings. After praying the sacrifices begin, to mark Prophet Ibrahim’s faith and God’s compassion for him. The sacrifice is then shared with near and dear ones. Muslims dress up in new clothes, greet each other by saying “Eid Mubarak”, exchange gifts with friends and family and feast together.

Some of the delicious dishes made on this festival are mutton biryani, mutton keema, mutton korma, bhuni kaleji, and desserts including kheer and sheer khurma.
