EID – AL – ADHA: WHY DO MUSLIMS SCARIFIES ANIMALS AND WHERE IS THE PRACTICE LEGAL IN PUBLIC?
Falling on the 10th day of the holy month of Dhu al-Hijjah, Eid is the “Festival of Sacrifice” and coincides with the Hajj pilgrimage from Medina to Mecca.
It honors Abraham’s willingness to slay his son Ishmael at Allah’s request, a supreme act of faith.
The prophet, distressed by the order, asked Ishmael what he should do and the boy advised him to follow through with the commandment. Satan tried to dissuade Abraham from slitting the boy’s throat but was driven away by the prophet pelting stones, an act recreated by pilgrims on the Hajj.
