Speaker: Dr. M. Monjur E Elahi
Eid-ul-Adha – also known as the Eid of Qurbani (sacrifice) is the Eid that follows* the performing of Hajj (pilgrimage), which is one of the Five Pillars of Islam.
The significance of Eid-ul-Adha venerates Prophet Ibrahim’s ultimate sacrifice of his son following the command of Allah SWT. This act of duty was a test to Prophet Ibrahim as when he went to kill his son, considering this now his duty; Allah SWT replaced his son with a sheep.
Eid-ul-Adha celebrates and commends this pure act of Prophet Ibrahim, and his obedience to Allah SWT.
This sacrifice is honoured by the sacrifice of an animal on Eid-ul-Adha (usually a goat, sheep or cow), and is divided into three equal portions and then distributed amongst friends, family and the poor.
