Eid-al-Adha, also known as Bakra Eid, is among the two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide. It is believed that Prophet Ibrahim, father of prophets was challenged by the god to prove his faith in him. God asked him to sacrifice something he is very fond of. He decided to sacrifice his 13-year-old son Ismail. Later, God intervened by sending his angel Jibrail (Gabriel), who then replaced his son with a sheep. Since then people celebrate the festival by sacrificing an animal. The festival pays tribute to one of the greatest demonstrations of faith with Islam. As per the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and falls approximately 11 days prior to the previous year’s Eid. In 2018, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated on August 22. As we celebrate Eid al-Adha, here are some SMS, WhatsApp messages, pictures, and Facebook status to share with your family and friends.
