Eid-al-adha 2017: Celebrate Eid-ul-adha on the dates revealed

The festival is celebrated by Muslims all around the world.

Muslims in Brooklyn are preparing to celebrate Eid al-Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice, which begins tonight at sundown. This year, Saudi Arabia's High Judicial Court has announced that the first day of the Islamic religious event falls on September 1.

IRUSA has been helping to manage the "mega shelter" in the Dallas Convention Center, and is arranging to serve a special meal to those there who observe Eid al-Adha.


Just when Ibrahim was about to kill his son Ishmael upon Allah's command, God put a sheep in his place.

In his message for the Muslim holiday Eid'l Adha, the President stressed that the Filipino people must be united to achieve "genuine and lasting" peace, especially amid the affliction and strife in Mindanao.

Azerbaijan's Cabinet of Ministers, in accordance with the decision (dated 25 November 2016) on Novruz, Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha holidays, declared September 1 and 2 as non-working days throughout the country on Eid al-Adha.


Saudi Arabia's High Judicial Court has confirmed that the first day of the Muslim festival falls on Friday after the new moon crescent was sighted on August 22.

Eid al-adha is celebrated to honour the obedience and devotion of Ibrahim (Abraham) towards Allah. Many countries celebrate this festival in a different way. Muslims sacrifice a goat on this day to honor this day and divide it among family, friends and the poor in commemoration to this. It is believed that on the day of the Sacrificial Feast, no one should be left hungry.
