Eid al-Adha is one of the two blessed Eids that we celebrate as Muslims.

What is Eid al-Adha?

On Eid al-Adha we remember the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (AS).

In remembrance of his sacrifice and to help the poor and needy, we give our own sacrifice: Qurbani.

When is Eid al-Adha?

Eid lasts for a period of three days – starting on the 10th day of the holy month of Dhul Hijjah. This year, it is expected to fall on Saturday 9th July 2022 (dependent on moon sightings).

As Islam follows a lunar calendar, this date will vary each year.

Sacrifice on Eid al-Adha

Following the Eid prayer on the first day of Eid al-Adha, we offer a sacrifice – Qurbani – to remember the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to Allah (SWT).

A portion of this meat (from a sheep, goat, cow or camel) then goes to help our brothers and sisters in need.

Observances on Eid

As with any festival and important occasion, we follow the example of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

There are various Sunnah acts of worship you can do on the day of Eid.

Eid prayers

Eid prayer is an important part of the day.

Make sure you donate your Qurbani and and not miss out of the blessings of this blessed time!

Donate Qurbani now and make your sacrifice.
