Eid ul-Adha means the Festival of Sacrifice. Allah commanded Ibrahim to sacrifice his only son Ishmael to Him. Ibrahim obeyed, however, in the end Allah substituted a ram to be sacrificed instead as Ibrahim had proven that he would obey Allah's commands.

This holiday is celebrated on the tenth day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijja.
