Bakrid festival special quiz

Bakrid, also known as Eid-al-Adha or Eid-ul-Zuha, is a Muslim festival celebrated on the 10th day of the Muslim month of Zul-Hijja. It is a festival of sacrifice and is celebrated to honour Ibrahim and Ismael’s love towards Allah. The name Bakrid is derived from Bakr, which means goat, as the sacrificial animal is usually a goat. The festival also marks the anniversary of the day the Holy Quran was completed and is the time when devotees go on Hajj to Mecca12.

What is the significance of the festival?
Bakrid is celebrated to commemorate the faith, devotion and spirit to sacrifice one’s all to serve and follow the Almighty God. The festival is based on the story of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), who was tested by God to prove his loyalty and obedience. God asked Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of submission. Ibrahim agreed to do so without hesitation, but God intervened at the last moment and replaced Ismael with a sheep. God was pleased with Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son and rewarded him with another son, Isaac345.

The festival of Bakrid symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice that one can make for God. It also signifies the importance of faith, trust and obedience to God’s commands. It reminds Muslims of their duty to help those in need and share their blessings with others. It also celebrates the completion of the Hajj pilgrimage, which is one of the five pillars of Islam and a mandatory religious duty for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it56.

How people celebrate this festival?
People celebrate this festival with great joy and enthusiasm all over the world. They start the day by offering prayers at mosques or open grounds shortly after sunrise. The prayer is followed by a sermon or khutbah delivered by the Imam. After the prayer, people greet each other with hugs and wishes of “Eid Mubarak” or “Blessed Eid”. They also exchange gifts and sweets with their family and friends25.

The main ritual of Bakrid is the sacrifice of an animal, usually a goat, sheep, cow or camel. The animal must be healthy, mature and free from any defects. The animal is slaughtered in a humane way in the name of God and following the Islamic rules. The meat from the sacrifice is divided into three parts: one-third for the family, one-third for relatives and friends, and one-third for the poor and needy. The meat is cooked and served as a feast along with other delicacies245.

People also dress up in new or traditional clothes and visit their relatives and neighbours. They also donate money or food to charities and mosques. They spend their time in prayers, gratitude and generosity towards others. They also enjoy various cultural activities such as music, dance, games and fairs25.
