This Eid celebration and sacrifice of animals is performed to remember the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son (Ismaial) as act of obedience of Allah (G0d), God though had swapped it with an animal before knife could do its act.
This Eid and sacrifice is beautiful in a way that Muslims first slaughter an animal and then give away the meet to people who normally can’t afford the meat. It doesn’t matter that deserving one is Muslim or not. It is about getting the less privileged involved in pleasures of life with the more privileged people.
People either sacrifice a full small animal like a goat or seven people collectively sacrifice a bigger animal like cow or camel etc. Then every one divides his/her meat to be sacrificed in three equal portions, one is for his/her own one, one is divided among close relatives and final one is divided between the deserving people. However, one can go forward to make the deserving people’s portion bigger to take most of the essence of this sacrifice.
After all this explanation of essence of Eid al-Adha i would like to say Happy Eid (Eid Mubarik) to Muslims in Pakistan and all over the world. Remember the deserving people around you, make an effort to divide the meat among those really deserving people and make sure very less portion of your meat goes into your freezers.
