Eid al-Adha, also known as Id-ul-Zuha or festival of sacrifice, is an important Muslim festival. It honors the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God's command.
Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah in the Islamic lunar calendar, and lasts for three days. However, in the Islamic calendar, a new day starts the dawn of the day, so the festival crosses 4 days in the Gregorian calendar. The celebrations vary in different countries, but it can last anywhere from two to four days.
Eid al-Adha is one of the core Islamic holidays of the Islamic faith. As known as the Festival of Sacrifice, it is a time to show deep appreciation and personal sacrifice. Many Muslims make donations to charities and help those in need during the holiday, and it is great opportunity to show the graciousness and the connection to God.
Some Muslims go to the holy land Mecca in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj when Eid al-Adha starts, and many others who cannot make the trip to Mecca celebrate where they live by going to the mosques for special prayers and by enjoying the meals and celebrations with families and friends.
Eid al-Adha is called Hari Raya Haji in Malaysia.
