Bakra Eid  means 'feast of the sacrifice' which is celebrated to honour the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of devotion towards God. It is said that God asked Prophet, his friend, to prove his faith in him and sacrifice something he loved the most. Prophet then decided to sacrifice his son, Ismail to fulfill his command. After looking at this gesture God asked his angel to put a goat instead of his son at the very last moment.


This special day is now celebrated by sacrificing an animal, wherein there are three parts, one part is given to relatives and friends, second to the poor and needy and third for themselves. The celebration takes place for 3 days where Muslims visit the mosque and pray for peace and prosperity after which the sacrifice takes place.

Muslims across the country would be celebrating Bakra Eid tomorrow, 22nd August 2018. If you are planning to host a party you can prepare these yummy delicacies at home or if you are planning to visit a Muslim friend, then these are the dishes you might get to taste.
