Eid-ul-Adha ('Celebration of Sacrifice'), also known as the Greater Eid, is one of the most important festivals in the Muslim calendar. It marks the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca). It takes place on the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar. Although only pilgrims to Mecca can celebrate it fully, Muslims elsewhere also mark the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. Eid ul-Adha is a remembrance of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his own son's life for the sake of God. Similar to Jewish and Christian narratives, God intervened before Abraham sacrificed his son, and thus Muslims around the world commemorate Eid ul-Adha by sacrificing livestock. Although the Islamic narrative is similar to the Judeo-Christian tradition, there are some differences. Judaism and Christianity mention Isaac as the chosen son for sacrifice; conversely, Islamic tradition depicts Ishmael as the chosen son for sacrifice. Despite the theological differences, Eid ul-Adha is yet another example of the shared origins of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Regardless of who Abraham almost sacrificed, it is notable that all three traditions acknowledge and celebrate the existence of a merciful God that tested, and ultimately prevented, the sacrifice of human life We extend our greetings to Muslims around the world on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.
