About Eid ul Adha

Eid ul Adha, also referred to as Eid al-Adha, is the ‘feast of sacrifice’.

It is marked by a day of celebrations with friends and family, with many Muslims also going to their local mosque for special prayers.

The date of Eid ul Adha is based on the lunar calendar and changes each year. This year celebrations began on Monday (19 July).

The traditional way to wish someone Happy Eid is by saying Eid Mubarak.

This is the Arabic greeting observers use to wish each other well during both Eid al-Fitr – the ‘festival of the breaking of the fast,’ which is celebrated at the end of Ramadan – and Eid ul Adha.
