Eid ul Adha

Eid ul Adha

Sunnah of Eid ul Adha
Eid ul Adha is one of the two celebrations of Islam. It is celebrated by Muslims all over the world on the 10th day of Dhu Al Hajj. The Muslim celebration Eid ul Adha marks the finish of the significant love of Hajj or great pilgrimage to the holy land of Makkah. This Eid  is also known as the Festival of Sacrifice. It is the Sunnah of Holy Prophet Abraham.

The Qur'an describes Abraham (PBUH)

During the Hajj, Muslims remember the great Sunnah of the Prophet Abraham. The Qur'an describes Abraham (PBUH) as follows:
One of Abraham's principle trials was to confront the order of Allah to kill his only son. After hearing this order, Abraham prepared to submit to God’s will. At the point when he was completely arranged to do it, God revealed to him that his "sacrifice" had already been fulfilled. He had shown that his love for his God superseded all others, that he would lay down his own life or the lives of those dear to him in order to submit to Allah.

Sunnah of Eid ul Adha.

On the day of Eid ul Adha, Muslims should do following Sunnah in keeping with mind the education of Prophet Mohammad's (PBUH).
  • Take a shower and wear a fragrance to smell wonderful.
  • Make sure you are wearing clean or new clothes.
  • Say takbeerat: اللہ اکبر ،اللہ اکبر، لاالاہ ال لللہ،و اللہ اکبر، وللہ لحمد
  • Perform Eid Al Adha prayers, (if Possible perform Eid prayer at an open place).
  • Sacrifice the Animal
  • Kindness during Eid (The best kindness is to help the needy and poor people).
  • Wish to every Muslim an "Eid Mubarak" (Have a blessed Eid), or (Happy Eid).

why Muslims sacrifice an animal on this day.

On the day of Eid ul Adha, Muslims remember Abraham's Sunnah, by slaughtering an animal such as a camel, cow, bull, sheep, or goat. The meat from the sacrifice of Eid ul Adha is normally given to the needy people, so Muslims are actually feeding the poor. The meat is distributed in three equal parts to the poor, to relatives, and consumed by the family themselves.
This action is very often misunderstood by those outside Islam because they do not know the true spirit of Islam. The act represents our willingness to give up things that are of benefit to us or close to our hearts. It also represents our willingness to give up some of our own bounties, in order to strengthen ties of friendship and help the individuals who are in need.
