Eid-ul-Adha


While in the US Eid-ul-Adha comes and goes without much notice, in some Muslim cultures, Eid-ul-Adha, is called Eid Kabeer or the bigger Eid, compared to Eid-ul-Fitr. Yet, the latter celebration gets more attention for many, perhaps because it follows a month of intense spiritual interaction through extra prayer and fasting, Ramadan. In contrast, Eid-ul-Adha springs up unexpectedly for many, and is then given less attention.

Eid-ul-Adha, in many ways is the bigger Eid. It is a three-day long celebration, four according to some, and commemorates the struggle of Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him, and his family.
