Happy Eid to everyone who celebrates Eid-al-Adha!
Eid-al-Adha is the second of the two major festivals and lasts for four days.
Eid-al-Adha honors Abraham's sacrifice of his son as an act of obedience to the Creator's command. Before Abraham fulfilled his heartbreaking request, Allah (God) sent a lamb to sacrifice in his stead.
An animal is traditionally sacrificed and divided into 3 parts. Part of it is given to the poor, the other part is given to family and relatives.
