Eid al-Adha 2016
Eid al-Adha 2016 wishes, messages and greetingsReuters

Muslims across the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice, to honour Abraham's (Ibrahim) willingness to sacrifice his only son Ishmael on the command of God. After realising the devotion of Abraham, God asked him to sacrifice a sheep instead of his son.

As part of the sacred Muslim festival, devotees symbolically sacrifice lambs, goats, rams or other animals. While Eid means festival in Arabic, Adha means sacrifice.

Eid al-Adha is considered as the second most important festival for Muslims after Eid al-Fitr. The sacred festival, which is also known as Bakrid or Bakr Eid, falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th month of the Islamic calendar and represents the end of Hajj. This year Bakrid is observed on Sept. 12 in Saudi Arabia and is celebrated in the countries like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh on September Sept. 13.
