Islam - ʻĪd al-Aḍḥá

July 9

Islam – ʻĪd al-Aḍḥá. Also called the ‘Festival of Sacrifice,’ this day is the concluding act of pilgrimage and is observed even when not on pilgrimage. As Abraham offered his son, Ishmael, to God, Muslims offer sheep, goats and camels and distribute this meat to the poor. (Observance begins at sunset of the previous day, but special worship and prayers begin July 9.)
