After Eid-ul-Fitr, all the Muslims around the world wait anxiously for the second Eid i.e., Eid-ul-Adha. An auspicious event that is celebrated by the Muslims all over the world. Eid-ul-Adha is also called Bakra Eid. The occasion is celebrated with the same zest and enthusiasm like any other event. It symbolizes Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son for Allah. Seeing his obedience Allah Almighty replaced his son Prophet Ismail with a lamb and hence, the animal was sacrificed remarking the event as Eid-ul-Adha. Let’s discuss what makes Eid-ul-Adha so special?
Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated in the last month of Islamic lunar calendar i.e. Dhu al-Hijjah. After the holy pilgrimage Hajj, all the Muslims over the globe celebrate Eid to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s sacrifice and faith by sacrificing the sacrificial animal in the name of Almighty. This year, Eid-ul-Adha would be celebrated on July 10, 2022 across Pakistan. There are many great things about this Eid but there are three most important ones without which Eid-ul-Adha seems incomplete.
Eid-ul-Adha is not only about sacrificing the animal but also the greed, pride, and your ego for Allah. Completely abandoning these evils and blending in the society without any prejudices. For those who don’t know, the meat of the sacrificial animal is divided into three parts one is distributed among the less privileged people, one is distributed among the neighbors and relatives and the third one is kept with us. Three equal parts show that every section of the society should be treated equally and with full respect.
After Eid-ul-Fitr, all the Muslim community gets together on Eid-ul-Adha. The time when you meet and greet your long distant friends, relatives, and community members. The feeling of unity and oneness can’t be explained in words.
Eid-ul-Adha without eateries just sounds boring. This Eid has its specialties with mouth-watering dishes ready to make your Eid day complete. Every Muslim household cooks delicious cuisines like Peshawari Chapli Kebab, Nazaqati Boti Kebab, Al Kabsa and what not. Stop drooling, Eid is just around the corner you’ll get to eat all these soon.
As Eid-ul-Adha is nearing, make it most out of these days as the first 10 days of Dhul Hajj before the Eid have great significance. Make sure to pray and do dhikr as much as you can. Remember every good deed counts.
