Eid al-Adha, also known as the festival of sacrifice, is an important Islamic holiday celebrated in the United Kingdom and around the world. The holiday commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son in obedience to Allah's command. However, just as he was about to sacrifice his son, Allah intervened and provided a ram as a replacement.
Eid al-Adha is observed on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar. The festival lasts for four days and is marked with prayers, feasting, and the distribution of meat to the poor. In the UK, Eid al-Adha is celebrated by Muslims from diverse ethnic backgrounds. The festivities may vary among different communities, but the core of the celebration remains the same – to give thanks to Allah for his blessings and to renew one's commitment to his commandments.
Eid al-Adha is also an occasion for Muslims to reflect on the values of sacrifice, compassion, and generosity. It is a time to remember those who are less fortunate and to share one's blessings with them. In many parts of the UK, Muslims come together to prepare a communal meal for the homeless and needy. Eid al-Adha is observed on June 28th this year.
