Eid al Adha (Starts) in
Days to go:
Eid al-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is one of the most significant festivals in Islam. In Nigeria, it is celebrated to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of devotion to Allah. Eid al-Adha has an important role in strengthening the bonds between Muslims, and it teaches the values of sacrifice, generosity, and compassion. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of obedience to the commands of Allah and celebrates the strength of faith and devotion to Him.
The festival takes place on the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar. Muslims all over Nigeria gather to perform Eid prayers, exchange gifts and greetings, and share food with family, friends, and the less privileged. Eid al-Adha is also a time when Muslims perform qurbani, the sacrifice of an animal, such as a goat or a sheep, to honor Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son. The meat from the animal is divided into three parts: one for the family, one for friends and neighbors, and one for the poor.
The history of Eid al-Adha in Nigeria dates back to the introduction of Islam in the region. It became a significant festival as more people converted to Islam, and it is now celebrated with great enthusiasm across the country. Eid al-Adha is observed on June 28th this year.
