Eid al-Adha, which is celebrated on Zul Hijjah 10 this year, will most likely happen on Saturday, July 9, according to astrological calculations.
Muslims commemorate Arafah Day on Zul Hijjah 9, the ninth day of Ramadan. On Friday, July 8, Ibrahim Al Jarwan, leader of the society, says the Gregorian date is Friday, July 8th.
From Friday, July 8 through Monday, July 11, astronomical calculations suggest this will be the case.
Annually, Muslims travel to Saudi Arabia to celebrate the Haj, which culminates in the Eid al-Adha festival on the 10th day.
What is Eid Al Adha?
Eid al-Adha commemorates Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son at God’s command, according to legend. Prophet Ibrahim revealed his vision to his son, who then instructed his father to carry out the directive. A sheep was sent in his son’s place by God, though.
What is the Day of Arafah?
Observed by Muslims on Zul Hijjah 9, it is the most sacred day. Arafah, a hill in Saudi Arabia, is where Haj pilgrims spend the day remorseful for their transgressions. Muhammad (peace be upon him) delivered his final sermon from this location.
