Eid Al Adha or Feast of Sacrifice

In each year, Eid al-Adha or feast of sacrifice will fall on the ending of the pilgrimage. At that time, Muslims will head to the Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia. All of them will ask Allah for forgiveness. In Islam, it is essential to understand that Muslim should clean their sins by asking forgiveness to Allah. Allah is the Most Merciful and Gracious.

There are more than three million Muslims from many places around the world who travel to Mecca. They pray to Allah by facing the Ka’aba each year on the twelve month of the Islamic calendar.

Why is Eid Al Adha also known as the feast of sacrifice?

In each celebration, there will be some Muslims who sacrifice the animal and then share the meat. In some countries, this act is also named Qurbani. The animal that is slaughtered is named Udiyyah. The Udiyyah can be cow, camel, goat, or sheep that meet the requirements. There are certain requirements that should be fulfilled, including the age and quality. The Udiyyah should be in good condition, so it is safe to be consumed. The meat will be shared with many people, including the family, neighbor, and poor people.

There will be many people who do Qurbani. That’s why Eid Al Adha is also named feast of sacrifice. Many people also make a moment to eat together. This shows unity of Muslims. There are several foods, desserts, and drinks for celebration. Qurbani is something great that is always waited. But, there are also several people who cannot slaughter the animal freely. In some countries in Europe, people are not allowed to slaughter animal outside the slaughtered home. As the alternative, Muslims who want to perform Qurbani buy the whole carcass from slaughtered house or butcher. Then, the meat is divided into several parts.
