How do Muslims celebrate Eid ul-Azha around the world?

The astonishing celebration of Eid ul-Adha, otherwise called the Greater Eid or the Festival of the Sacrifice, is here! A great number Muslims from over the globe will meet up to honour the dutifulness of the Prophet Ibrahim (as) when he submitted to the will of Allah and agreed to sacrifice his child Ismail.

Eid is an event of satisfaction and peace, where we celebrate with our families, let go of past feelings of resentment and make significant associations with each other. Around the globe, Eid traditions and festivities vary and numerous nations have their own social ways to deal with this imperative celebration.

USA and Europe

In Europe and the USA, Muslims, for the most part, skip breakfast and go straight to their nearby mosque for Eid supplications and the Eid message. A short time later, they return home for an intricate supper with family, companions and neighbours.

In Western nations, a Monday-Friday work plan in some cases keeps families from spending the entire day together, and it’s basic for individuals to go straight to work or school after Eid petitions and leaving the family assembling until the point when the end of the week comes


Eid ul-Adha is more commonly known as ‘Eid el-Kibr’ in Egypt, and is endowed with a greater significance than the festival of Eid ul-Fitr. The day begins in a largely traditional way, with prayers and a sermon followed by a large family gathering. People will meet with their friends and loved ones and wish one another ‘kol sana wa inta tayeb’. This means ‘I hope every year finds you well’.


The heavenly celebration is known as ‘Kurbanir Eid’ or ‘Bakri Eid’ in Bangladesh and is seen as both a religious event and a festal one. About a month before the celebration starts, arrangements will be in progress with sweet shops, blessing stores and material merchants stocking their racks with the merchandise delighted in by families the nation over.

Upon the arrival of Eid, the Qurbani Sacrifice will happen. In Bangladesh, Cows, Goats and Buffalos are regularly picked and the Slaughter will start specifically after the Namaz (petition function) on a primary day, proceeding for the following two-three days.
