Read the wishes of other celebrities on Eid-al-Adha:
Eid-al-Adha marks the end of the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca, and is celebrated by Muslims to honour and commemorate Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of allegiance to God.
On this day, Muslims offer Eid-ul-Adha namaz at a mosque after the sun has completely risen and just before it enters the Zuhr time (midday prayer time). Followed by a sermon or khutbah, by the Imam, the celebrations follow later which include eating delicious food, giving charity to the poor and sharing the joy with family, relatives, neighbours and friends.
