Eid Ul Adha is the other Eid which the Muslims celebrate. It is celebrated on the 10th of Zil Haj (the 12th month of Islamic Calendar). Eid-Ul-Adha commemorates the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) to sacrifice his son Ismail for Allah. On this Eid, the sacrifices of animals like goats, sheep, cows and camels are done. Prior to the sacrifices, all the Muslims say the Eid prayer in mosques in the morning and then do the sacrifices. The meat is distributed among the poor, relatives, friends and neighbors.
On Eid Ul Fitr, the special dishes of meat are cooked up in every house like Kalaiji, meat pulao, tika boti, barbecue, etc. Ran roast (goat’s leg) is much popular among the Eid’s dishes. There are many other varieties as well for the meat’s dishes.
On these two Eid, people enjoy the extended holidays and go to celebrate the occasion with relatives and friends. Picnics are witnessed a lot.
