On the tenth day of Zil Hajj, the 12th Islamic month, Eid ul Azha is observed. A religious holiday is Eid-ul-Azha. This holy day, also referred to as the second Eid, is observed in remembrance of the sacrifice made by the prophet Ibrahim, who gave his son, the prophet Ismail, as a ransom in order to carry out Allah’s will.

Muslims all over the world offer a sheep, goat, cow, or camel as a sacrifice on this day in remembrance of Allah, just as the prophet did. The meat from the sacrificed animal is then divided into three portions and given to close family and friends as well as, most importantly, the less fortunate. It is extremely difficult to make sacrifices this Eid ul Adha because of the ongoing pandemic. There are still many online Qurbani websites that will perform Qurbani for you, thanks to the internet and technology.
