How do Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha?

Tomorrow, the Muslim community will be celebrating another holiday, this time marking the end of Hajj—the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.

Eid al-Adha or the Greater Eid is a two-day Islamic holiday centered on prayer and animal sacrifice, symbolizing prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son to Allah. You might say that the holiday is a commemoration of how Ibrahim and his son Ishmael showed their obedience and submission to the divine will of Allah.

Similar to Eid’l Fitr, the date of this holiday varies each year since the Islamic calendar follows the lunar calendar. However, while Eid’l Fitr is focused on thanksgiving, Eid al-Adha is a holiday of prayer and sacrifice. How do our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate this holy day?
