The Qur'an states that one day Allah asked Hazrat Ibrahim for his most beloved thing in his dream. Hazrat Ibrahim seemed to be his son. They decided to sacrifice their son. But as Hazrat Ibrahim stabbed his son on his neck, Allah saved the son of Hazrat Ibrahim with a knife and offered a sheep sacrifice. That is why this festival is also known as Bakrid.
How is Eid-ul-Zuha celebrated?
* On the day of Eid-ul-Zuha, Muslims sacrifice an animal such as goats, sheep, camels, etc. The meat of this sacrifice is divided into three parts: one for yourself, one for relatives and one for the poor.
