PRESS RELEASE: Eid al-Adha begins on the 31 July and ends 2 August. The name translates as the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’ and honours Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his own flesh and blood for Allah. Eid al-Adha is celebrated around the world with families sharing gifts and food, not only with each other, but also with the needy. In order to fully honour Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice, it’s stated that one third of the Eid feast should be given away to those in need.
