Eid al Adha is an Islamic holiday that is celebrated in Germany by the Muslim community. This holiday commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of submission to Allah. Eid al Adha is observed on the 10th day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah and it is a time for prayer, reflection, and acts of charity.
Muslims in Germany gather at mosques to perform the Eid al Adha prayer, after which they slaughter an animal to distribute meat to family, friends, and the needy. The holiday is also marked by the exchange of gifts and the greeting of "Eid Mubarak" which means "blessed Eid". The celebration of Eid al Adha in Germany has roots in the migration of Muslims to the country. The first mosque in Germany was built in Berlin in 1915, but it wasn't until the 1960s and 70s that a significant number of Muslims arrived from Turkey and other countries, bringing their traditions and customs with them.
Today, Eid al Adha is recognized as a public holiday in some German states, including Berlin, and it is celebrated by millions of Muslims across the country. Despite facing some challenges, such as discrimination and prejudice, the Muslim community in Germany continues to preserve its cultural and religious traditions and make valuable contributions to the country's multicultural society. Eid al-Adha is observed on June 28th this year.
