Like other parts of the world, Muslims in Australia annually celebrate Eid-ul-Adha on 10th DhulHijjah. Eid festivities continue for two more days i.e. till 12th DhulHijjah.
Eid-ul-Adha commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s(AS) willingness to sacrifice his young son Ismael(AS) for Allah SWT. On Eid, many Muslims sacrifice a ritually acceptable animal and then divide two-thirds of the meat among the poor, friends, and relatives, and keep up to one-third for themselves. According to most Islamic schools of thought, animals can be sacrificed from 10th DhulHijjah to 12th DhulHijjah. However, a few scholars believe that the dates for offering a sacrifice are from 10th DhulHijjah to 13th DhulHijjah. Nonetheless, according to Islamic teachings, it is preferred to slaughter one or more animals on the first day of Eid(10th DhulHijjah).
Eid-ul-Adha is also commonly known as Eid-al-Kabir, Kurban Bayram, Bakra Eid, Greater Bayram, and Eid-al-Adha. It is a sacred observance among Muslims and people observe it by offering Eid prayers, visiting the graves of their deceased relatives, meeting and greeting others, and cooking meat dishes.
In 2024, Eid-ul-Adha in Australia will be observed from Tuesday, 18 June to Thursday, 20 June.
Dates may vary according to moon sighting.
