Eid al-Adha commemorates the story of the Muslim Prophet Ibrahim’s test of faith as he was commanded by God to sacrifice his son. Thus, the festival is a symbol of sacrifice and devotion towards God. Eid-ul-Zuha or Eid-al-Adha is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah. It is celebrated two days after the Muslims begin Hajj pilgrimage in the last month of the Islamic calendar.
