The Significant  of Eid Al-Adhu 

Eid Al-Adhu  literally  mean the festival  of the Sacrifice , referring  to the story of Abraham  or Ibraham as he’s  also known  who was ready  to sacrifice  the life of his son  at the command of Allah,  God After testing  Abraham’s devotion,  switched  the  object of Sacrifice  to a sheep instead of his son  . This is the reason why  this day also called Bakar Eid 

Muslims usually  symbolically  sacrifice  goats  , lambs and other animals in the name of Allah and is a respect  to Abraham’s willingness  to make the ultimate  sacrifice. 

The meat from the sacrificed animal is considered  pious  and distributed  among friends  and family .
