Why we celebrate Eid al-Adha
Muslims believe that Allah commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son Ishmael. Ibrahim follow God’s instructions, but his son was exchanged by a sheep at last moment. Muslims celebrate this at Eid al-Adha. Eid al-Adha is called Bakr-Id in the Indian, because of the belief of sacrificing a goat in Urdu. The word “id” derived from the Arabic “iwd” means “festival” and “zuha” translates to “sacrifice”.
