Perhaps no other occasion celebrates the determination and loyalty to God as much as Eid – Ul – Adha. It commemorates Ibrahim’s unhindered willingness to follow the word of God by sacrificing his son to the omnipotent being. It’s a very famous tale in the Muslim community and almost any Muslim could recite it to you by heart. Prophet Ibrahim (also known as Abraham in Jewish and Christain communities) was instructed by God to sacrifice his son Ismail in his name. The whole ordeal was meant to be a test for Prophet Ibrahim to test his honor and loyalty to Allah. Prophet Ibrahim placed his trust in God and led his son to Mount Moriah where he intended to perform the sacrifice. Miraculously, however, an angel stopped him and replaced his son with a ram instead. These are the events behind this festival/occasion which is celebrated throughout the world amongst all Muslims. In addition to that, it’s also a public holiday in many countries such as Pakistan, Malaysia, Turkey, Indonesia, UAE, and several others.
While Muslims of different cultures in different corners of the world may have their own unique ways of celebrating Eid-Ul-Adha, there are a few things common to all the cultures. The men usually pray at a mosque followed by a sermon. People usually buy new fashionable clothes for the joyous occasion and visit their family and friends. The main tradition that defines this occasion is known as the “Qurbani”, where people usually sacrifice a goat, sheep, or sometimes even a camel which is supposed to represent the animal Prophet Ibrahim sacrificed instead of his son. This entire occasion can simply be described as a communion of Muslim relatives and friends to celebrate a man whose trust in God was so great, he was willing to sacrifice his son.
