KARACHI, Pakistan (Nov. 06) – Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival which is celebrated to commemorate the obedience of Prophet Ibrahim towards Allah (S.W.T).
Prophet Ibrahim who was a very aged man had only one son named Ismaeel who was born to him only in his old age. When Allah (S.W.T) commanded him to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ibrahim didn’t hesitate and was about to do so. Allah (S.W.T) accepted his sacrifice and exchanged a goat with his son Ismaeel.
Today Eid al-Adha was celebragted in Middle East, central and far-east Asia and Europe.
Muslims residing in UK and other European countries were also among those who made the day by sacrificing animals. In United States, public slaughter of animals is banned; therefore, people perform the religious duty at Slaughter House.
In addition, Eid is being observed in Philippine, Indonesia, Malaysia and other far-east Asian countries.
In subcontinent, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, Eid al-Adha 2011 will be celebrated tomorrow (Monday, Nov. 07). People are ready to celebrate the big eve with scarifying their animals.
