About Eid-ul-Adha

Eid-ul-Adha is one of the special festivals of Muslims. Eid-ul-Adha is also known as Bakr-Eid and festival of sacrifice. On this festival Muslims sacrifice their domestic animals like goat, sheep, cow, camel etc. This sacrifice made by Muslims is a symbol of sacrifice made by Prophet Abraham.

Eid-ul-Adha celebrations start after the Hajj. The first day of Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated on the tenth day of Duhl-Hijja, that is the last month of the Islamic year. In some areas Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated for several days by Muslims.

Muslims celebrate the festival of Eid-ul-Adha with lot of enthusiasm, enjoying each and every moment. On this day Muslims dress themselves in new clothes. Early in the morning prayers are offered to remember God and then the day beings with the breakfast of Sheer Korma.

Soon after the breakfast the animal is sacrificed and then the meat of the slaughtered animal is distributed among the neighbors, friends, family and poor people. The meat of the sacrificed animal must be distributed in three equal parts among neighbors and friends, family members and poor people.

Muslims greet each other with well wishes for the festival along with the meat of the slaughtered animal. Muslims spend time with their near and dear ones to spread love and happiness all around.

In the evening Muslims visit their near and dear ones and celebrate the festival. Delicious food and drinks are served to all the guests on this festival.

To celebrate Eid-ul-Adha in a creative way, kids can make Eid-ul-Adha greeting cards and present them to all their near and dear ones. For those who have no time to visit markets to buy Eid-ul-Adha greeting cards and have no free time to make Eid-ul-Adha greeting cards, for them online Eid-ul-Adha greetings would be the best option.

The markets also remain open and decorated on the occasion of Eid for all the Muslims to do their shopping. Children also enjoy this festival by wearing new clothes and playing games. Eid is the festival when all the children have a real fun time as they get gifts, clothes, sweets, perks and love from all their near and dear ones. Children also make special handmade Eid Greeting cards for all their friends.  They observe and experience all the Eid traditions followed by their parents and are excited to follow the same when they grow up.
