Eid Ul Adha 2019

The name itself refers to the story of the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), the events of which are described in the 37 Surah of the Quran (in general, Ibrahim is paid much attention in the Quran). Once, the angel Jibreel (identified with the biblical Archangel Gabriel) appeared to him in a dream and conveyed that Allah orders the sacrifice of his son.

It was about the eldest son Ismail (in the Old Testament was Isaac). And Ibrahim, despite the mental agony, still agreed to slaughter a loved one. By the way, the son was also ready to die by the will of God. But when the sacrifice was almost brought, Allah made it so that the knife could not be cut, and the sacrifice of his son was replaced by a ram. It was a test of faith, and Ibrahim successfully passed it.

This holiday comes 70 days after another important day, Eid-Ul-Fitr (end of fasting in the month of Ramadan). We must remember that Muslims use the lunar calendar, which consists of 12 lunar months and contains about 354 days. Therefore, holidays are annually met not on one fixed day, but on different ones.

The key part of Eid Ul Adha is the sacrifice. After the festive prayer, the believers slaughter a ram (you can still have a camel, a cow, a buffalo or a goat), recalling the feat of the prophet Ibrahim. At the same time, the rite has strict rules. If a camel is sacrificed, it must be five years old.

Cattle (cow, buffalo) must be two years old, and sheep - one-year-old. Animals should not have diseases and serious defects that spoil the meat. In this case, a camel can be stabbed for seven people. But if funds permit, it is better to sacrifice seven sheep - a sheep for a believer.

How to Celebrate Eid Ul Adha:

The great feast begins with the morning prayer. In each of the mosques, a prayer will be performed, after which the main part of the holiday, the sacrifice, will begin. Children at prayer are not necessary to take.

It is necessary to give one-third of the sacrificial animals to give to the poor or orphanages, give one-third to guests and relatives, and leave another third to the family. And on this day it is customary to visit loved ones and pray for the dead. Also, believers should give alms.

Eid Ul Adha 2019 does apply to public holidays in all Muslim Countries. However, in some regions of the country where predominantly Muslims live, this day can be declared non-working.

Be Mercy to The Victim:

Stabbing the animal, you cannot show aggression. On the contrary, he should be treated with pity. In that case, the Prophet said, and Allah will have mercy on man. To the place of stabbing the beast lead carefully so as not to cause panic. 

It is cut in such a way that it is not seen by other animals. And the victim herself should not see the knife. It is strictly forbidden to torture an animal. Therefore, the blade must be well sharpened. Well and most importantly, before the sacrifice, a Muslim must show good intention in what he does for the sake of God.

How to Distribute Meat:

According to the rules, the meat of the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts. One must be given to relatives and friends, the other to feed the poor and disadvantaged, and the rest can be left to yourself. You cannot sell this meat.
