Eid ul-Adha (ar. عيد الأضحى Eid ul-Adha) - a major Islamic holiday that lasts 4 days (10-13 zulhijte, ie the twelfth month according to the Arabic calendar) and is called the so-called holiday of sacrifice because then a sacrifice is offered - kurban, usually rams and are distributed to the poor.
On the first day of the holiday, the prayer for Eid - Eid prayer is performed, with which the believers ask for mercy from Allah. Characteristic of this holiday is the offering of a sacrifice - a sacrifice that has the symbolism of approaching God. The custom is performed by everyone who has the opportunity to do so. Those who offer sacrifices then distribute the meat to the poor, neighbors and relatives. On this day the pilgrimage of the pilgrims who went to pay homage to the Holy Frog in Mecca is crowned.
Eid al-Adha always falls on the same day according to the Islamic calendar, but according to the Gregorian calendar the date is different from year to year because the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar and the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar. The lunar calendar is approximately 11 days shorter than the solar calendar. Every year, Eid al-Adha (like other Islamic holidays) is celebrated on one of two different Gregorian dates in different parts of the world.
Otherwise, this 2020 Eid al-Adha is on July 31 according to the Gregorian calendar, otherwise Hijrah 1441.
