Bakrid Story And Significance And Celebrations

According to the beliefs, Prophet Ibrahim had a dream in which he sacrificed his 10-year-old son, Ishmael. Being a great believer in God, he decided to sacrifice his son, but then God sent his angels and asked him to sacrifice an animal and not his son. So, for Muslims, it is a day to sacrifice an animal which is dear to them, through which they can prove their devotion to Allah. The meat is divided into three parts with the first being given to family, friends and neighbours; second for the poor and the third one for the family. Eid Al Adha Recipes From Mutton Biryani to Umm Ali You Can Easily Make at Home.
