Eid al-Adha, or the Festival of Sacrifice, begins on Tuesday (August 21) night. The festival, also called Bakr-id, is celebrated to mark prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son on Allah’s wish.
Legend has it Ibrahim sought to sacrifice his only son for Allah after a distinct dream. However, after seeing his devotion, Allah intervened and asked him to sacrifice a goat, instead.
In India, the festival will be celebrated from Tuesday night to Wednesday evening.
“May this Eid bring all the happiness in your life and you celebrate it with everyone close to your heart. Eid Mubarak!”
“This Eid-al-Adha, may Allah fill your heart with wonders. Eid Mubarak!”
“Eid Mubarak! Warm wishes and prayers. May Allah shower all happiness on you and your family this Eid-al-Adha.”
“Eid Mubarak! May Allah fill your heart with love, your soul with peace, and your mind with wisdom this Bakr-id.”
“Sending you warm wishes on Eid-al-Adha! May this Bakr-id bring joys, peace and prosperity for your family. Wishing you a very Happy Eid!”
“Wishing you and your family all happiness today and always! Eid Mubarak!”
“May Allah’s blessings be with you this Eid-al-Adha and always!” Eid Mubarak!”
