Eid Al Adha Traditions

Muslims worldwide will soon be preparing to observe Eid al-Adha. It is falling on the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah, after the Day of Arafah. We know that Dhul-Hijjah is the last or the 12th month in Islamic calendar. Geographically, the date can be different in Saudi Arabia, USA, UK, and south Asian countries. But, the traditions of the celebration are quite same. The celebration will be opened with a prayer.

The prayer can be performed on a mosque or open field. In some countries with many Muslims, the prayer is commonly performed in the open field. In some countries in Europe, the prayer is performed in the mosque. Men, women, and children are encouraged to perform this annual prayer. But, menstruating women are not allowed to perform the prayer.

After praying, Muslims will visit family or other Muslim and then sacrifice an animal as the next Eid Al Adha traditions. This is the big occasion that is always waited by Muslims. There are many kinds of animal that can be sacrificed, like sheep, goat, cow, and camel. The type of the animal will vary based on the region. Not all animal can be sacrificed. There is a rule that should be followed when sacrificing an animal. Then, the animal that fulfills the requirement can be slaughtered and shared.

In some countries, like Indonesia, the animal can be slaughtered in many places. Commonly, the animal will be gathered and then slaughtered near the open field with the halal procedure. But, in France, slaughtering animal should be in special authorized places.

In several places, dressing up the best clothes is also one of the Eid Al Adha traditions. Several days before the celebration, some people will buy the new clothes or prepare the best clothes. In the celebration, many Muslims will gather together.
