Eid is an important celebration for the Muslims because it reminds them of the story of the Prophet Ibrahim and how he was willing to sacrifice anything for Allah. One night, Prophet Ibrahim had a dream in which he sacrificed his son. He took this as a sign from Allah and told his son, who agreed to be sacrificed. The Muslims believe that during the sacrifice, Allah moved Prophet Ibrahim’s son out of the way and put a sheep in his place. From then on, it became an Islamic tradition to sacrifice and feast on a sheep on the anniversary on that day and give some of the meat to the poor. This is extremely important to the Muslims because it shows how they are willing to sacrifice for Allah. (Social)
