This festival, besides being for prayers and sacrifices is also known for feasting. Eid al Adha 2013 will be celebrated on 15 Oct in USA, Canada. Here are some great recipes for Eid al Kabir

Eid al Adha is very close now. After three days well all will be celebrating the Eid al Adha that is also called Eid-e-Kabir in Arab world and Badi Eid in South Asian nations. This Eid that is celebrated on the occasion of Hajj in memory of Prophets Abraham and Ishmael is all about sacrifice. Muslims across the world scarify best animals for Allah (SWT) hoping that they are prepared to give their lives too for God Almighty if He wishes so.

Muslims are also required to spend lots of time in prayers in the nine days leading to the Eid al Kabir or Eid al Adha. Many Muslims fast during the first nine days of the month of Dhilhij, the last month of the Arabic or lunar months. These are the days that are most important and the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) stressed his companions to pray as much as possible during these days. Even Allah (SWT) has stressed their importance in the Holy Qur’an.

But Eid al Adha is not just about prayers and sacrifices. It is also about feasting and celebrations, though Muslims are expected to celebrate in moderate fashion.
