Eid El Adha

Within few days it will be Eid El Adha (Al Adha Feast), which is also known as the Major Feast as it is 4 days while Eid El Fetr (the Minor Feast) is on the other hand 3 days only. One of the main things that people do in Eid El Adha is el Adheya (eating sheep meat) which is done as a celebration for what Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) had done when he was ordered by Allah to kill his own son Ismael, then Allah sent him a sheep to kill instead of Ismael when he was about to do it. Also people go to pilgrimage during that time in Mecca. Tags: , ,
