Muslims from all across the world are celebrating Id-ul-Zuha today. The festival which is also known as Bakr-Id is the second of the two Muslims holidays celebrated worldwide each year. As per the Islamic traditions, Eid-Al-Adha is celebrated two days after the beginning of the Hajj pilgrimage. Eid al-Adha begins with a prayer of two rakats, followed by a sermon. The start of this festival depends on the sighting of the new crescent moon. It begins on the 10th day of one of the holiest months of the Islam calendar. The festival honours the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, as an act of obedience to God’s command.
