Alla asked Abraham to kill his only son. Upon hearing this command, he was ready to Allah's will. When he was all prepared to do it, Allah told him that his "sacrifice" had already been fulfilled. He had shown that his love for his Lord is the top priority than all others,
During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims remember Abraham's trials, by slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat.
Allah has given us power over animals and allowed us to eat meat, but only if we pronounce His name at the solemn act of taking life. Muslims slaughter animals in the same way throughout the year. By saying the name of Allah at the time of slaughter, we are reminded that life is sacred.
One-third of this meat is eaten by immediate family and relatives, one-third is given to friends, and one-third is donated to the poor. The act symbolizes our willingness to give up things that are of benefit to us or close to our hearts, in order to follow Allah's commands.
This festival gives the importance of going along with friends, neighbours and relatives in a good and helpful way.
