Eid Aladha is an important feast for Muslims. It is on the tenth of the month of Thulhijjah which is today, Tuesday, here in Saudi Arabia, but In some countries like Indonesia, Morocco, and some other countries, it will be on Wednesday. As we mentioned before, dates may vary. It comes after the pause of Arafa, and it brings to the present, how Prophet Abraham (blessings of Allah be upon him) wanted to slaughter his son Ismail and he was given a sheep by angel Gabriel as a sacrifice instead of his son.
It is a day of eating and drinking and the pilgrims finish the rites of this happy day by shaving or shortening their hair, or sacrificing their sheep, or Hadiy. They distribute it to the poor and the needy ones. Some of them go to throw the stones at the pillars starting with the first (Jamara), the middle one, and finally, the small one.
Some pilgrims go to Mecca to perform Ifadah Tawaf (finishing circumambulation). They stay two or three days in Mina and then go to perform the farewell Tawaf. Their Hajj has been completed. Then, they get ready for their journey back home.
Happy Eid to all of you.
