Eid al-Adha, also known as Bakrid, is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Muslims in India. It marks the end of Hajj, which is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca. The festival honours the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah's command. Just as Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son, Allah replaced the boy with a sheep, which was then slaughtered in his place. As a result, Muslims around the world sacrifice an animal (usually a sheep, goat or cow) and distribute the meat to the poor and needy.
The festival begins with the morning prayers held in mosques, after which families gather to give thanks and enjoy a feast of meat, sweets and savouries. Many also donate money or clothing to charities in honour of the festival. In India, Eid al-Adha is celebrated with great enthusiasm and is an occasion for communal harmony and social interaction.
The history of Eid al-Adha dates back to the time of Ibrahim, around 2000 BCE. It is believed that Allah instructed Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Ismael, as a test of his faith. At the last moment, Allah intervened and provided a sacrificial animal instead. Ibrahim's willingness to obey Allah's command is celebrated on this day as well as the end of the Hajj pilgrimage. Eid al-Adha is observed on June 28th this year.
