Eid-e-Ghorban/Eid Al-Alha (Feast of Sacrifice)

Eid-e-Ghorban is an Islamic holiday observed on the 10th day of the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah. This year, Eid-e-Ghorban falls on June 17 . This holiday is also known as the feast of sacrifice or ‘Al Eid Al Kabeer,’ which translates to “Grand Eid,” which is also another name for the holiday. This Eid has a higher religious significance because it lasts for four days. It is held throughout the Muslim world to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to give up all for God. The actual day of Eid-e-Ghorban is determined by lunar observations, hence it may differ from country to country.
