It's Eid-ul-adha!

Eid-Ul-Adha is also known as the day of sacrifice or the feast of sacrifice or commonly as Bakr-Eid, the celebrations start after the Haj. 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. The festival is celebrated to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his only son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God. However, God provided a ram in place once Ibrahim demonstrated his willingness to follow God's commands.Muslims, who can afford to do so, offer domestic animals, usually sheep, as a symbol of Ibrahim's sacrifice. The meat is distributed for consumption to family, friends and to the poor and needy. In this occasion, I would like to extend my heartfelt wishes to my Muslim brothers and sisters, May everyone have a blessed Eid!
