Eid Al Adha: After the Hajj, Eid al-Adha is celebrated. This is also called the festival of Sacrifice. Muslims of all denomitions celebrate it with equal fervour.

What do you mean by Eid ul Adha?


Ibrahim (AS) has demonstrated a readiness to sacrifice Prophet Ismail (A.S.) his son, but Allah's Lamb has substituted his Son. Allah was pleased to receive the offering from Ibrahim (A.S) so that He created a literal depiction of a Muslim life of his show of sacrifice and faith. In the Quran - Surah As-saffat, this occurrence is mentioned (37:102).

Therefore, Muslims around the world commemorate the Eid ul Azha every year on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah. Today, Muslims murder the Ibrahim Sacrifice using a sheep, goat, camel, or mule (AS). In Islam, both Eid ul Fitr and Eid Al-Adha are very important, as the preceding Hadith of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) makes clear that this same thing: “Allah has given you better than those feasts (festivals of non-believers): the ‘Eid-ul-Adha’ and ‘Eid-ul-Fitr.” It is banned to eat Eid al-Adha and Eid ul-Fitr, as the preceding hadith of our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is evident: "No fasting is permissible on the two days of Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha.” .

How is Eid ul Adha celebrated?

Eid al Adha is commemorated two or four days by Muslims across the world (depending upon the country). Some of the Sunnah is to be followed by all Muslims throughout this wonderful holiday.

Sunnahs of Eid al Adha and Eid Prayer

2. With a Miswak or brush, clean your teeth.
3. Take a bath, take a bath.
4. This day, you'd have to wear your best attire.

What is the sacrifice of an animal?

The Sunnah including not only Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) as well as of our Noble Prophet Mohammad is reaffirmed on Eid al Adha day by offering or Qurbani (S.A.W.). Some academics, nonetheless, believe it is 'Wajib' (obligatory). It is a wonderful act of adoration to sacrifice animals for the cause of Allah. It gets closer to Allah the one who offers a tribute. The Prophet (S.A.W.) told Abu Hurairah (R.A.) that he said:
“Whoever can afford it [sacrifice], but does not offer a sacrifice, let him not come near our prayer place.”
The hadith makes apparent the value of Allah's sacrifice. Perhaps it carries a message to Muslims who do have the opportunity but do not do so for whatever worldly cause or weak pretext, to make sacrifices on Eid ul Adha.

Allah’s lamb

The origins of qurban can be traced back to Ibrahim's dream in which God instructed him to sacrifice his most valuable possession. Ibrahim was perplexed since he couldn't decide what was his most valuable possession. Then he understood he was seeing his son's death. He believed in God's command. He explained to his son why he was removing his son from their home. Ismail, his son, consented to obey God's command, but God intervened and told him that his sacrifice had been accepted, and he was substituted with a sheep. This substitution appears to allude to either the religious institutionalization of sacrifice or the future self-sacrifices of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and his companions (who were destined to descend from Ishmael's progeny) in the name of their beliefs. Muslims all throughout the world slaughter an animal every year on Eid al-Adha to honor Ibrahim's sacrifice and to remind themselves of abnegation.

Allah’s son

In Islam, s ibn Maryam, often known as Jesus, is the Messiah and the penultimate prophet and messenger of God (Allah), who was sent to shepherd the Children of Israel with a new revelation: Injl (Arabic for "gospel"). The Quran (Islam's core theological source) presents Jesus as the Messiah, born of a virgin, performing miracles, followed by disciples, rejected by the Jewish leadership, and exalted to heaven, much as the Christian New Testament does. The Quran varies from the New Testament in declaring that Jesus was not crucified or killed on the cross, and in rejecting Jesus' divinity as God incarnate or the literal Son of God.

Nobel Prophet Mohammad

Muhammad ibn Abdullah was an Arab religious, social, and political figure who is credited with founding Islam as the world religion. He was sent to preach and authenticate the monotheistic teachings of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets, according to the Islamic religion. In all of Islam's major branches, he is considered the ultimate prophet of God, however, some modern faiths disagree. The Quran, as well as Muhammad's teachings and behaviors, formed the foundation of Islamic religious belief.

Qurbani (saw)

Qurbani is an annual animal sacrifice made to Allah on the occasion of Eid al-Adha, which marks the end of Hajj. This sacrifice commemorates the actions of the Prophet Ibrahim (as), who was willing to sacrifice his beloved son Isma'il (as) after seeing Allah's will in a dream. However, Allah used the dream as a test, and He sent down from heaven a ram to be sacrificed in Isma'il's (as) place. Each year, we confirm our willingness to sacrifice whatever Allah asks of us and to submit entirely to Him by sacrificing an animal.

For the cause of Allah

Fi sabilillah is an Arabic idiom that means "in Allah's cause" or, more appropriately, "for Allah's sake." Fisabilillah and fisabillillah are alternative spellings for fi sabilillah, which means "one who strives for Allah's cause." It implies "he dedicated the revenue or profit to be used in the cause of God," which translates to "he gave to charity." It implies "he dedicated the revenue or profit to be used in the cause of God," which translates to "he gave to charity."

Allah’s sacrifice

The Festival of Sacrifice (Bakrid), also know Muslims benefit from being near to Allah (subhannahu wa ta'ala) because they will receive more rewards now and in the afterlife. This post will explain how you can get closer to Allah.

1. Read the Qur'an. Read it with humility and reflection in mind, attempting to comprehend every word it contains since it will be of great use to you in your life and, of course, in the afterlife. All issues have remedies in the Qur'an.

2. Make it a habit to pray five times a day. Always pray at the appointed time. Never postpone or neglect a prayer. Go to prayer as soon as you hear the adhan (call to prayer). Relax into your prayer and let go of anything that is bothering you in life. And keep in mind that you're with Allah right now, and He demands your undivided attention.

3. Maintain proper etiquette. Never steal or lie, always forgive and be pleasant to those around you, be grateful to your parents, follow your promises, and always forgive and be nice. Even your opponents should be treated with kindness; the Qur'an instructs us to "repel evil with good."

4. Stay away from sins in general. Don't offend people, don't procrastinate or neglect your responsibilities, and keep in mind that Islam forbids all sexual behavior outside of marriage.

5. Maintain a low profile. Women should not show their bodies or wear clothes that are too tight or too revealing. Both men and women should cover their awrah in accordance with Islamic dress regulations. From the navel to the knees for men, and any region of the body where adornments can be found, such as anklets, henna, bracelets, earrings, and so on, for women. Awrah generally refers to the complete body, excluding the face; but, in other sects, the face is included in awrah. Modesty extends to your actions as well. Muslim men should not associate with women who are not connected to them, and vice versa. "Lower your sight," Muslims are taught. When as Eid-ul-Zuha, is one of the two major Muslim feasts. It occurs in the month of Zilhaj, the Islamic calendar's final month. Prophet Ibrahim's (peace be upon him) willingness to sacrifice his son Hazrath Ismail on Allah's mandate is commemorated on Eid-ul-Zuha. Muslims believe that Allah sent Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son to put him to the test. Muslims from around the world make the yearly Haj pilgrimage to the holy sites of Makkah and Madina during this time. The first 10 days of Zilhaj are thought to be the most auspicious of the Islamic calendar. The Day of 'Arafah,' which falls on the ninth day of this month, is regarded as the best and most powerful day of the year.

6. Make a "Zakah" or "Sadqah" donation (charity). and give as much as you can to the less fortunate. Those who provide charity will receive a "great reward," according to the Qur'an. Zakah, as one of Islam's five pillars, is obligatory for all Muslims. Sadaqah is not obligatory, although it is strongly recommended. There are, however, limitations on who you can help and who you can't.
