One of two major Islamic festivals, Eid is an occasion for Muslims around the world to celebrate with friends and family.

Eid ul-Adha is a very joyous occasion for Muslims. It marks the conclusion of the Hajj pilgrimage and signals the beginning of the ritual of Udhiya also known as Qurbani.

The main theme, of course, is to remember the story of Ibrahim; to rejoice, regroup, and rekindle as a family and feast together.

This year, Eid al-Adha is celebrated on the evening of Monday, July 19, and ends on the evening of Friday, 23 July.
