History of Bakra Eid: 

The festival is celebrated to commemorate Islamic Prophet Ibrahim’s (PBUH) (Abraham) absolute dedication to Allah. The history of this festival started with Ibrahim have a recurring dream about fulfilling Allah’s wish to slaughter his son Ismael. One day when Ibrahim told his dream to Ismael, who is also a man of God, immediately agreed to his father and asked him to complete the wish.   

Just as Ibrahim was about to make the sacrifice, Shaitan (devil) came to dissuade him from making the sacrifice. Ibrahim threw stones on Shaitan to shun him away.

Seeing his complete devotion, Allah sends Jibreel (the Archangel) with a sheep and ordered him to exchange the sheep with Ismael. Complying with Allah’s order, Ibrahim then sacrificed the sheep and since then the festival is celebrated by Muslims by slaughtering a sheep or goat.

Significance of Bakra Eid:

The Bakra Eid is not just the sacrifice of an animal but it is a commemoration of Ismael and Ibrahim’s complete devotion to Allah. The meat of the sacrificed animal is distributed in three equal parts. One portion is given to the poor and the needy, one portion is distributed in relatives and the last portion feeds the family itself.
