Eid al-Adha translates to “Festival of Sacrifice” and is considered the holiest of the two Eids, the other being Eid al-Fitr, that commemorates the end of Ramadan.
Eid al-Adha marks the culmination of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Festivities usually lasting three to four days are celebrated by millions of Muslims worldwide.
Eid al-Adha is traditionally celebrated with a communal prayer, or ṣalāt, at dawn on the first day of the festival, attending Mosque, donating to charities and visiting with family and friends, and exchanging gifts.
If you know someone who might be celebrating Eid al-Adha, you can recognize their celebration by using the celebratory phrase ‘Eid Mubarak’ or ‘Happy Eid’.
