Significance of Eid al-Adha
Eid al-Adha honours the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ishmael to point out his obedience to God’s command as he was repeatedly dreaming of it. However, earlier than Ibrahim might sacrifice his son, God supplied a lamb to sacrifice as a substitute. Traditionally, since then the ritual of sacrificing a sheep or a goat and getting ready a meal have been practised by Muslims.
Historically, one portion of the cooked meat is distributed among the many poor and the needy, the opposite is saved for folks at residence and the third is given to relations. Eid al-Adha is all about sharing and caring for folks in society.
