Qurbani, the festival of the sacrifice, is one of the great traditions of Islam, along with Hajj that also takes place at Eid al-Adha. Muslims come together and follow the example set by Ibrahim (AS), who was willing to sacrifice his son, Ismail (AS), as a sign of his unwavering devotion to his God.

Allah (SWT), as reward for both Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail’s (AS) loyalty, replaced the young boy with a ram. Ismail (AS) was left unharmed, despite laying bound in his blindfolded father’s lap as he prepared to carry out the sacrifice.

How is Eid al-Adha Celebrated?

It is tradition that all Muslims who are eligible to do so follow this example. Slaughtered animals, sacrificed as per Qurbani rules, are shared one of three equal ways – one to the person making the sacrifice, one to friends/family, and another to someone in need.

As only licenced slaughterhouses may carry out the sacrifice in many countries, including the United Kingdom, Children of Adam can receive your Qurbani donations online and we will see that your payment is used accordingly. This will mean that someone living in the most desperate of conditions will receive a prime cut of meat.

Muslim friends and families will come together to celebrate Eid al-Adha, also known as Big Eid (with Eid ul-Fitr following the month of Ramadan known as the lesser Eid). Every year, millions will take part in the annual Hajj pilgrimage in which they will travel to Mecca. This is a Muslim tradition that all those able are expected to do at least once in their lives.

When is Eid al-Adha 2021?

This year, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated from Tuesday 20 July to Friday 23 July. All sacrifices should be made during this timeframe, otherwise they will not count as Qurbani. As Islamic days begin and end with the sighting of the moon, Eid al-Adha will actually begin in the evening of Monday 29 July, subject to the sighting of the moon.

How Long is Eid al-Adha?

The festival lasts for three days, during which time all Qurbani sacrifices should be made if they are to count towards the festival of the sacrifice.

Everyone at Children of Adam wishes our generous supporters a blessed Eid al-Adha. To continue supporting the great work that our team of volunteers do, please continue to donate through our website here.
