Eid ul Adha is one of the most important religious festivals in Islam. It commemorates the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) and his son Ismail (Ishmael). On this day, Muslims around the world sacrifice an animal, such as a sheep, goat, or cow, and distribute the meat to family, friends, and the poor. Eid ul Adha is a time for celebration, feasting, and spending time with loved ones.
