Dubai: According to the Kuwait news agency Kuna, authorities in Kuwait have declared the dates for the Eid Al Adha holiday.
“The Eid holiday will begin from Sunday, August 19, and end on Thursday, August 23, and said that work in services and government organizations will be stopped amid the whole week,” the Kuwaiti cabinet said.
Additionally, UAE-based astronomers anticipate that Eid Al Adha will fall on Wednesday, August 22.
There is also a day called “Arafat Day,” which is another public holiday in the UAE, takes puts on the ninth day of the Islamic lunar calendar, a day before Eid Al Adha.
Each year, Muslims around the world celebrate Eid Al Adha, which implies the “festival of sacrifice,” is the second of two Islamic occasions.
Amid the Haj, Muslims recall and remember the preliminaries and triumphs of the Prophet Ebrahim. The holiday respects Ebrahim and his readiness to sacrifice his son Esmail as an act of obedience to Allah’s order.
Be that as it may, before the child is sacrificed, Allah’s holy messenger Jibra’il furnishes Ebrahim with a male goat instead.
In celebration of this, Muslims amid Eid Al Adha sacrifice a goat and partition it into three equal parts: one part for the family, another one for relatives, and the last one for poor people.
