Bakrid (Eid-al-Adha)

Bakrid (Eid-al-Adha)
  • Eid-ul-Adha is thought to be Bakrid in the Republic of India. The day honours Prophet Ibrahim’s (also called Abraham) sacrifice. It’s believed that he was tested by God to sacrifice his only son. Abraham followed the command and was able to sacrifice his son. However, God intervened throughout the act and a lamb was sacrificed rather than Ibrahim’s son.
  • To celebrate this act, Muslims acknowledge Ibrahim’s devotion and celebrate Eid-ul-Adha annually. It’s marked by sacrificing a lamb or AN animal, which is later divided into 3 elements. One share is unbroken for home and also the rest 2 shares are an area unit given to the poor.

Significance :

Every year, Muslims celebrate this pageant to recollect the Prophet’s loyalty toward God. And, as a result of his actions, the pageant is additionally called the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’. The act merely symbolises giving for free love and thus it suggests one should be willing to sacrifice what they love foremost. Devotees celebrate this pageant by sacrificing a lamb or AN animal to indicate their devotion towards God.
