May the blessings of Eid-al-Adha continue to multiply for you and your family.
The two highest holy days in Islam are Eid-al-Fitr and Eid-al-Adha.
Eid-al-Fitr is a prayer and celebration after the end of the month of Ramadan.
Eid-al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى) also called the "Sacrifice Feast", is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ismaeel, as an act of obedience to God's command. Before he sacrificed his son God intervened by sending his angel Jibra'il (Gabriel), who then put a ram in his son's place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: the family retains one-third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends, and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.
