Like other countries, Muslims living in the USA celebrate Eid-ul-Adha every year. This event is observed during the twelfth Islamic month i.e. DhulHijjah. Muslims across the globe celebrate Eid-ul-Adha from 10 DhulHijjah to 12 DhulHijjah. The corresponding Gregorian calendar dates may vary from one country to another. This is because the new month in the Islamic calendar(also called Lunar Calendar) is marked by the sighting of the new moon, which can vary from one location to another.
Eid-ul-Adha is a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his young son Ismael for Allah. Muslims who can afford to sacrifice a ritually acceptable animal, do so and then divide two-thirds of meat among the poor, friends, and relatives, and keep up to one-third for themselves. Although a person can perform a sacrifice on any of the three Eid Days(four according to a few scholars), but most prefer to do it on the first day i.e. 10th DhulHijjah.
Eid-ul-Adha is also commonly known as Eid-al-Kabir, Eid-al-Kurban, and Kurban Bayram. Other names include Id-ul-Azha, Bakra Eid, Greater Bayram, and Eid-al-Adha. On this occasion, people offer prayers, meet and greet others, and cook meat dishes.
In 2024, Eid-ul-Adha will be observed in the United States from Monday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 19.
Dates may vary according to moon sighting.
