Happy Bakrid 2017: Eid al-Adha or Bakrid will be celebrated on September 2, 2017. The festival, considered one of the holiest days in Islam, marks the end of Hajj, Indian Express Online reports. For those who don’t know, Hajj is the annual pilgrimage undertaken by devout Muslims to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The term ‘Eid al-Adha’ translates to ‘festival of the sacrifice’. The festival is celebrated referring to the story of Abraham, or Ibrahim, a devotee who was ready to sacrifice the life of his son at the command of Allah, Indian Express Online reports. However, Allah, after testing Abraham’s devotion, switched the object of sacrifice to a sheep instead of his son – the reason why a sheep is sacrificed and the festival is also known as Bakra Eid or Bakrid. The followers of Islam sacrifice goats, lambs and other animals in the name of Allah and as a respect to Abraham’s willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice, the report says. The meat obtained from the sacrificed animal is considered pious and distributed among friends and family.
