Wishes, quotes, messages to share with family and friends
Festivals are more about sharing joy with people than just traditions. Celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah of the Islamic calendar, Eid-ul-Adha or Bakrid is often referred to as the Muslim festival of sacrifice. The festival celebrates Prophet Ibrahim’s devotion to Allah, who was about to sacrifice his son Ismail but before he could, Allah provided a goat for the sacrifice instead. This year, Dhu al-Hijjah started on July 1 and therefore, according to the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid ul Adha will be celebrated on July 10.
Muslims around the world celebrate Eid-ul-Adha to commemorate and honor Prophet Ibrahim. According to tradition, the sacrificed goat is divided into three parts to be distributed to relatives and friends, to the poor and to family.
On this pious occasion, here are some of the best wishes, quotes and messages you can send to your loved ones.
