Eid al-Adha commemorates the time God appeared to Ibraham to test him. Those who are financially able, slaughter an animal such as a sheep, goat or cow and share the meat with the poorer individuals in the community, in remembrance of the sacrifice made by Ibraham.

Eid al-Adha is considered a revered observance by the Muslim people and is a four-day religious event that coincides with the height of the Hajj, which is the time that Muslims make a pilgrimage to Mecca. All who are physically and financially able have to undertake this journey at least one time during their life. This pilgrimage draws more than two million people each year.

The day begins with morning prayers. However, the celebrations of this day continue with visits from friends and family members. Many Muslims also exchange gifts and have great feasts on this day.
