sylhet-2Eid-al-Adha honors Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael when God ordered him to do this. However, just as Ibrahim was about to kill Ishmael, God put a sheep in his place. Some people dispute that the son of sacrifice was Isaac (Isḥāq). Regardless, these events are remembered and celebrated at Eid al-Adha.

Muslims celebrate Ibrahim’s complete obedience to the will of God during Eid-al-Adha. They remind themselves of their own willingness to sacrifice anything to follow God’s commands. It also marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
