For Muslims, Eid al-Adha, also known as the Eid of Qurbani, is an important festival. It is celebrated around 70 days after the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
In accordance with Islamic tradition, Hazrat Ibrahim planned to sacrifice his son Hazrat Ismail on this day as a sign of obedience to God, then Allah gave life to his son, in whose memory this festival is celebrated.
'Qurb' in Arabic is said to be close or very close, which means that on this occasion Allah becomes very close to man.
Qurbani refers to the sacrifice of an animal that is sacrificed on the 10th, 11th, 12th or 13th of Zil Hajj (the month of Hajj) to please God. It is written in the Quran: We have given you Hauz-e-Kausar, so you pray for your Allah and make sacrifices.
