To commemorate Ibrahim's faith in God and sacrifice, Muslims around the world celebrate "Eid-al-Adha".

According to Wael Hamadeh, an imam at the Islamic Community Centre of Ontario, thousands of years ago God or "Allah" commanded Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail.

He also advised celebrants to "remember to pray for peace, love and progress in our country and commit ourselves to exorcising negative tendencies that do not benefit us or our society".

The festival is in honour of Abraham, who was willing to sacrifice his son for God, which is why Eid-ul Adha is also known as the "Festival of Sacrifice". This year, Eid ul-Adha would commence in India on August 11, and continue until the evening of August 12.

Bakrid or Eid al-Adha is marked by Sacrificial Feast.

Also, Eid al-Adha is considered the final day of Hajj which is the annual pilgrimage that Muslims are required to undertake to Makkah once in a lifetime. The Eid that is held in late spring is called "Eid-al-fitr", the festival celebrated after a month of fasting.

This year, Eid-ul-Adha will begin in the evening of Sunday, August 11, 2019, and ends in the evening of Monday, August 12, 2019.

Eid Mubarak (pronounced EED muh-BAR-ack) and Eid Saeed are routine greetings used during the observance to offer best wishes.
