On July 21, the festival of Bakrid will be celebrated across the country. Preparations are being made to offer special Eid-ul-Azha prayers in Idgahs and major mosques from 6 am to 10.30 am. Last year people had to offer Namaz at home due to Corona infection, but this time people are expected to offer Namaz with Jamaat in Idgahs and Mosques. Eid ul Azha is the 12th and last month of the Islamic calendar. On the day of Bakrid, with the offering of Namaz in the morning, the celebration of Eid begins. Islam teaches its followers not to forget the poor on happy occasions.
Know what is the importance of Bakrid
Muslims all over the world take special care of the poor even on sacrifice like Eid. Three parts of the sacrificed goods are distributed and one part is given to the poor. In two parts, one is kept for himself and the other part is kept for friends and relatives. Muslims believe that Prophet Ibrahim was tested hard. Allah asked him to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismail. Ibrahim agreed to obey the order, but Allah stopped his hand. Instead, they were asked to sacrifice an animal such as a sheep or a lamb. In this way, Prophet Ibrahim proved true in the test taken by Allah. All three Jews, Christians and Muslims consider the Prophet Ibrahim, Ismail as their incarnation.
