History of Eid al Adha and sacrifice of Abraham History of Eid al Adha and sacrifice of Abraham
Muslims have two great  festival  in a year , that is Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha, Muslims celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr after the month of Ramadan , That Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha  considers  as a gift of fasting whole month , Muslims Do that Because that is Allah’s for  ummah of Hazrat Muhammad  S.A.W .

History of the Eid al-Adha is different and really interesting; The Muslims celebrate that in the month of Zil-Hajj on 10th of Dhu’l-Hijja. Muslims for whole of the word celebrate this day in accomplishment and to commemorate the faith of Abraham. Allah gives name to Abraham in Quran khalil-ul-Allah, The friend of Allah.

Many years back Abraham was born in idol-worshipping tribe of Chaldea. At his childhood he was among the kuffar , But Allah had brightened his heart with the light of truth. That’s why He doesn’t adopt them. Clarity of his heart toward Allah revealed when he had dream that he was sacrificing his own son. Then for fulfilling the command of his Allah next day he sacrificed camels. And distributed it among the poor in the name of Allah, As Allah commanded him in dream. But on next day he dreamed the same, and he was bit worried because he had already fulfilled the command by Allah. But Next day he did the same he sacrificed camels again. And he prayed to Allah to accept that.

But one the third night he had same dream; he saw he was sacrificing his on son Ishmael. On that day instead of sacrificing camels he called to his beloved son and told him a whole story.

(The Quran: 37:102)

“O my son! I have seen thee being sacrificed in a dream; what sayest thou?”

His son had a strong believe on his father and because of that without any question he replied in yes. Yes father I am ready.

(The Quran: 37:102).

“O my father! Do what thou art commanded; if God please, thou wilt find me of the patient ones”

So Father and the son bother were get ready for accomplished the command by ALLAH.

They went far away from house on the hills side. Daemons tried hard to restrain him from this act, because that act was for ALLAH When he was going to cut the throat of his son, his eyes where close and he cut the throat but not of his son but a goat from heaven. They accomplished their mission to fulfill the command of ALLAH.

Eid and muslims

eid mubarak Eid and muslims

All the religions of the world celebrate a festival of one sort or another. Eid is the religious festival of Muslims all over the world, every Muslim race, tribe or people throughout the world celebrates this holy festival with full respect and rhythm.  The eid festival is one of that Muslims are commanded to celebrate in joy and happiness by the ALLAH ALMIGHTY Himself. This shows how much important EID is.  The importance of eid is mentioned in many Surahs like SURAH YUNUS.  Before the light of Islam in Arabia, there is mention of Eid festival as yawm al-sab and some others among the Arab tribes.

Muslims celebrate two eids in an Islamic year, Eid ul Fitr or Eid ul Azha, on the sight on the moon. First EID, Eid ul Fitr is a Muslim great festival that marks the end of Ramadan and thus celebrated on first of Shawal. The first day of eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the Islamic month of shawal.  This eid has no connection with the historical incident nor is it connected to the alterations in seasons and cycles of years. It is a particular festival for Muslim to celebrate their joy and happiness by the will of ALLAH Almighty as a reward of the completion of the holy month of the Ramadan.

The second eid that Muslim celebrate in the memory of the great sacrifice in the way of ALLAH by Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and Hazrat Ismail (A.S) on the tenth of Zil-Hajj. Zil-Hajj is the last holy month of the Islamic year and in this scared month, Hajj is also performed in the City of Makkah in Saudi Arabia. Both the EID festivals have significance that is purely spiritual. On EID days Muslims thanks ALLAH for giving them will, strength and patience to fast in the month of Ramadan, and also recall the great sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim and Hazrat Ismail on the EID DAY. The celebration of the EID does not only mean having great feasts, friendly gatherings and embraces, the Muslims must dedicate this day to worship ALLAH and thank HIM for all the His blessing and mercy.
