The festival may also be known as Al Eid Al Kabir, which means ‘Grand Eid’. From a religious point of view, it has a more important status because it lasts for four days where Eid al-Fitr is one day, although most countries observe the same number of public holidays for both Eids.
The festival is celebrated throughout the Muslim world as a reminder of the Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice everything for God.
Eid-ul-Azha falls on the twelfth and last month of the Islamic calendar, the 10th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah. Since the exact day is based on the sighting of the moon, the date may vary between different countries.
Eid al-Adha is the end of the pilgrimage to Makkah. Eid al-Adha lasts for three days and Abraham (Abraham) remembers his willingness to obey God by sacrificing his son.

According to the Qur’an, Abraham was about to sacrifice his son when a voice from heaven stopped him and allowed him to do something else as a ‘great sacrifice’. In the Old Testament, it is a sheep that is sacrificed instead of a son.
In Islam, Ishmael is considered a prophet and the ancestor of Muhammad.
