There are two key Eid’s (Celebration Festivals) in Islam: Eid-ul-Fitr, which signifies the completion of the Holy Month of Ramadan; and Eid-ul-Adha, the greater Eid, which follows the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, at the time of Qurbani (sacrifice).

Although Eid-ul-Adha has no direct relation to the Hajj Pilgrimage, it is but a day after the completion of Hajj and therefore has significance in time.

The day of Eid-ul-Adha falls on the 10th day in the last (twelfth) month of the Islamic Lunar Calendar; Dhu-al-Hijjah. The day that festivals fall on is subject to an authentic locating of the moon, following the fulfillment of the yearly Holy Pilgrimage of Hajj - which is a commitment for all Muslim's who fit explicit rules, one of the significant Five Pillars of Islam. 

The festival of Eid-ul-Adha is to remember Prophet Ibrahim's commitment to Allah SWT and his availability to forfeit his child, Ismail. At the actual mark of penance, Allah SWT supplanted Ismail with a smash, which was to be butchered instead of his child. This order from Allah SWT was a trial of Prophet Ibrahim's eagerness and obligation to submit to his Lord's order, truly. Subsequently, Eid-ul-Adha implies the celebration of penance. 

Contingent upon the country, the festivals of Eid-ul-Adha can last anyplace somewhere in the range of two and four days. The demonstration of Qurbani (penance) is done after the Eid Salaah (Eid Prayers), which are acted in assembly at the closest Mosque on the morning of Eid. 

The demonstration of Qurbani comprises of butchering a creature as a penance to check this event in recognition of Prophet Ibrahim's penance for Allah SWT. This is otherwise called Udhiya. The times of creature penance complete three days, from the tenth to the twelfth of Dhu-al-Hijjah. 

The conciliatory creature should be a sheep, sheep, goat, cow, bull or a camel; the sheep, sheep or goat comprise of one Qurbani share, though a bull, cow or camel comprise of seven offers for every creature. The creature should be healthy and over a specific age to be butchered, in a "halal" agreeable, Islamic way. 

The Qurbani meat can then separated into three equivalent bits for each offer; 33% is for you and your family, 33% is for companions, and the last third is to be given to those out of luck. 

Generally, the day is gone through celebrating with family, companions and friends and family, regularly wearing new or best clothing and the giving of endowments.
