Eid al-Adha (Id ul-Adha) is a four-day Islamic festival starting on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja (Thou al-Hijja) to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son.
The occasion is also called the “Sacrifice Feast” or “Bakr-Eid” and is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It considered the holier of the two.
