Eid ul-Adha

Eid ul-Adha is second in the series of Eid festivals that Muslims celebrate. Eid ul-Adha is celebrated as a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah.

On this day Muslims sacrifice animals which have been deemed Halaal, or fit for sacrifice. They not only eat the flesh themselves but distribute it among the poor and hungry.
