Eidul Adha, known as the “Feast of Sacrifice”, is the most important feast on the Muslim calendar. It commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a sheep to sacrifice instead.

It falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth and final month of the Islamic calendar.
