Eid al-Adha is one of the most significant holidays on the Muslim calendar and is often known as the ‘Festival or feast of the sacrifice’. This honorific was given to Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to offer his son as a sacrifice to God when he commanded him to. The commandment was given to Prophet Ibrahim in order to test his dedication, obedience and submission to God. The celebration acknowledges Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to God. To commemorate this intermediation Muslims, slaughter a sheep, goat and other livestock to share with family, friends and those who are less fortunate, hence this is why it is called the’ feast of the sacrifice’. The festival is a reminder of Gods blessings and thanks. The celebration also highlights how important it is to be obedient and appreciative to what God has blessed you upon on.
