Edul adha or Eid ul Adhu, the Festival of Sacrifice, Sacrifice Feast, is celebrated on the tenth day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijja. Eid ul-Adha is always on the same day of the Islamic calendar and the date on the Gregorian calendar varies every year as the Islamic calendar is a lunar calender and the Gregorian calendar is a solar calendar.

Edul adha is also known as Tabaski, Eyd-e Qorban, Kurban Bayrami (in Turkey), Qurbani Eid, Bakr-Id (in Bangladesh, Pakistan and India), Hari Raya Haji, Hari Raya (in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines).

The following are the dates for the coming years as per the Gregorian calendar. Like other Islamic holidays it may fall on one of two different Gregorian dates in different parts of the world, due to the fact that the boundary of crescent visibility is different from the International date line.

2007: December 20
2008: December 8

PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA, THE HAJJ
 
PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA, THE HAJJ
The Hajj consists of several ceremonies, meant to symbolize the essential concepts of the Islamic faith, and to commemorate the trials of prophet Abraham and his family. Prophet Muhammad had said that a person who performs Hajj properly will return as a newly born baby free of all sins.
 

It is the dream of every Muslim to go on a Hajj at least once during his or her lifetime, as it is one of a Muslim's duties, as described in the Five Pillars of Islam. All over the world, countless millions of Muslims, men and women, have made the pilgrimage to Makkah, (Mecca) in Saudi Arabia the birthplace of Islam. Followers of Islam who cannot go on a Hajj because of ill health or lack of money are excused from the obligation.

Ihram is the first step of preparation for the Hajj. This is a spiritual state of purity during which the person must not quarrel, commit any act of violence or engage in sexual activity. It is very important the strict adherence of all rites and customs. The pilgrim should repeat the Talbiyah (Talbeeyah) prayer the English translation of which is given below:

“………..Here I am, O God, at Thy Command! Here I am at Thy Command! Thou art without associate; here I am at Thy Command! Thine are praise and grace and dominion! Thou art without associate."

The Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice.

“…Muslims worldwide gather for communal prayers on the first day of Id al-Adha (Eid-ul-Adha) -- the Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice. The first day of this celebration is held on the 10th day of Duhl-Hijja, the last month of the Muslim year. This is the second of the two major Muslim annual holidays. In most areas, this event is celebrated over several days…”

About 2 million Muslims perform the hajj every year, and this number seems to be fairly close to the maximum. Saudi authorities have now put regulations on how many can come from each country, so that anyone who wants to perform the hajj has to apply, and many are turned down.

In every Muslim house Men, women and children, dressed preferably white in colour and recite the Thakbir. Then assemble, Id-Gah, which is a wide-open space, for public prayers. The whole atmosphere is filled with the resonance of "Allahu-Akbar".
