Why do we celebrate Bakr Id/ Eid ul-Adha?

The story behind Bakrid or Eid ul Adha is based on the Prophet Ibrahim (also known as Abraham), who longed for a child. Finally, after years of prayer, God granted him his wish and he was blessed with a son, Ismail. Ibrahim and his wife were overjoyed!
 
Years later, when Ismail was a teenager, Ibrahim began to get recurrent dreams in which God asked him to sacrifice that which was most dear to him, i.e. his son Ismail. This was, of course, unthinkable to Ibrahim, who tried to ignore these dreams. But finally, he realized that he could stall God’s order no more, and he talked to Ismail about it. The son agreed that the father should go ahead and prove his faith, even if it meant giving up his life. People who heard about it were shocked, and they thought that Ibrahim was mad.
 
With tears in his eyes, Ibrahim raised the knife to sacrifice his son, but at that instant, God commanded him to stop and sacrifice an animal instead. He had proved his faith and there was no need for Ismail to die!!  Needless to say, Ibrahim was relieved and this is how the festival of sacrifice came to be. Later, Ibrahim and his son built the Kaaba at Mecca in Saudi Arabia, which is where Muslims across the world go on pilgrimage.

What does Bakr Id/ Eid ul-Adha celebrate?

This story has actually quite a few hidden lessons, which form the essence of this festival. Here are some of them:
  • If you believe in something, do so utterly and completely, and be ready to sacrifice everything to reach your goal
  • Often, sacrificing temporary pleasures can reap permanent benefits
  • If something is keeping you from your goals, like a bad habit or addiction, sacrificing it is better for you, however hard it may seem
You can set an example and celebrate Bakrid in a peaceful way!! Here we have an easy Bakrid craft, that kids can make and gift their friends.
