Importance of Bakrid, Eid-ul-Azha
Bakrid’s day is the day of Farz-e-Qurbani. There is a tradition in Islam to take special care of the Muslims and the poor. Because of this, special care is taken of the poor on Bakrid. On this day, three parts of meat are performed after the sacrifice. In these three parts one part is kept for themselves and the remaining two parts are distributed to the poor and needy. Through this, Muslim people promise that they sacrifice even things close to their heart in the way of Allah for the betterment of others.
Why do Bakrid celebrate
Bakrid has special significance in Islam. According to Islamic belief, Hazrat Ibrahim sacrificed his son Hazrat Ismail on the orders of God on this day in the path of God. Then, after seeing his passion, God gave life to his son. This festival is celebrated in memory of the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibrahim. After this, with the command of Allah, Islamic law was introduced to sacrifice animals in place of humans.
Why do you sacrifice?
Actually, when Hazrat Ibrahim gave the sacrifice, he felt that his feelings might come in the middle and for this reason he sacrificed his blindfold. After this, when he removed his blindfold, his son was standing alive in front of him. There was chopped Dumba (a sheep-like animal found in Saudis) lying on the Bedi. For this reason, the practice of sacrificing Bakrid started.
