Eid al-Adha 2024

Today (16/06/2024) marks the Eid al-Adha religious holiday in Islam. The celebration, which is also known as the “Feast of Sacrifice”, is all about remembering the sacrifices that Prophet Ibrahim made for this faith. 

Following Eid prayers the act of Qurbani, known as sacrifice, is carried out. Qurbani is when Muslims sacrifice a sheep or goat in remembrance of the prophets sacrifice to Allah. A portion of the animal sacrificed is usually donated to those in need. 

Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of the holy month of Dhul Hijjah and is observed approximately 11 days earlier each year. 

British Online Archives would like to wish all those celebrating a very happy Eid Mubarak. We hope today is filled with love, happiness and peace.
