Eid al-Adha Mubarak.

Today we wish Muslims all over the world, peace, harmony, happiness, good health and prosperity on the occasion of Eid al-Adha. 

Eid al-Adha عيد الأضحى, is the second and biggest of the two main Islamic holidays celebrated in Islam. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ismail (Ishmael) as an act of obedience to Allah’s command. Before Ibrahim could sacrifice his son, however, Allah provided him with a lamb which he was supposed to kill in his son’s place because of his willingness to sacrifice his own son in the name of God. In commemoration of this intervention, animals are ritually slaughtered. Part of their meat is consumed by the family which offers the animal, while the rest of the meat is distributed to the poor and the needy. Sweets and gifts are given, and extended family members are typically visited and welcomed. The day is also sometimes called the Greater Eid.

Mubarak to you all.
