Eid Al Adha, also known as the "Festival of Sacrifice", is a significant Islamic holiday celebrated worldwide. It falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and is observed by Muslims globally.
This day commemorates the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, as an act of obedience to God's command. Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha by slaughtering sheep, cows, or camels as a symbol of Ibrahim's sacrifice. The meat from the sacrificed animal is then divided into three parts: one for the family, one for friends and relatives, and one for the poor and needy
