Eid Al-Adha, which is also known Aidiladha celebration or “Festival of Sacrifice” is an Islamic festival meant to commemorate the obedience of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as an act of his submission to God’s command. Obeying the word of God, Abraham complied, but as he was to sacrifice his son, God replaced him with a goat, which was sacrifice in his stead. Thus, during the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves sacrificing an animal such as a sheep, camel, or a goat.
