This is such an informative poster. Are there any other times of year that are important to Muslims? I’d love to learn more.
Eid-ul-Adha falls just after the annual pilgrimage of Hajj (the fifth obligatory pillar of Islam), in Dhul Hijjah, the twelfth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and is widely known as the feast of sacrifice. Although this Eid has no direct link to the pilgrimage, it happens to fall just after the annual event.
Eid-ul-Adha commemorates the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (as) for the sake of Allah SWT. Prophet Ibrahim’s (as) willingness to sacrifice His son in His devotion to Allah SWT is what gives this Eid its title of ‘the feast of sacrifice’.
The act of Qurbani (sacrifice) is carried out on this particular Eid with cows, sheep, goats, bulls or camels. The meat from the animal is distributed in three equal portions between family, friends and those in need.
Many Muslims choose to donate their Qurbani through charities such as Muslim Aid to ensure proficient distribution of their Qurbani shares are given to those most in need.
This is really interesting information. Thank you!
