Hey guys how are you all ? I hope your weekend is going well. First of all Happy Bakra Eid to all the Muslim readers. Today I’ll be telling you about Bakra-Eid or Eid al-Adha. Bakra Eid or Eid al-Adha is one of the major religious festivals celebrated every year by the Muslim community across the world as per the Hijri calendar. Just like Ramadan and Eid ul-Fitr, Bakra Eid too is celebrated with grand enthusiasm and magnificence. But do you know why Muslims celebrate two Eids ? I hope many of you don’t know about this and that’s why I’m writing this article to keep you informed about everything.
Ramadan Eid is the first of two Eids that is celebrated after a whole month of fasting. Ever wondered what’s the reason why Muslims restrain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk for the entire month of Ramadan?? Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam that is the expression of faith, daily prayer, charity, and performing the hajj pilgrimage in Mecca. Eid al-Fitr or Ramadan Eid is known as the festival of breaking of the fast as it marks the end of Ramadan and beginning of the next islamic month Shawwal. On completion of 29 or 30 days of fasting basis on the observation of the new moon that calls for the celebration of Ramadan Eid.
Bakr-Eid is known as the festival of Sacrifice. This is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. But is considered holier and significant amongst the two. It symbolizes the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God’s command. But God intervenes and replaces the child with an animal. Angel Jibra’il (Gabriel) comes to him with God’s message and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts. The family retains one third of the share and second is given to relatives, friends and neighbors. The remaining third is given to the poor and needy.
Thank you for reading the post guys and Happy Bakra Eid Once again.
