Eid is a Arabic word it means festival. There are two big festivals in Muslim culture 1) Eid ul Fitr and 2) Eid ul Adha. These two Eids festivals we celebrated in two different Islamic Lunar months all around the world. EID UL ADHA festival, celebrated on the 10th day of last Islamic Lunar month, is also called feast of the Sacrificed.
The Eid ul Adha celebrates in the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s readiness to sacrifice his son Ismail to God as an act of submission to God’s command and his son’s acceptance to being sacrificed, before God intervened to provide Prophet Ibrahim with a Sheep to sacrifice instead. On another occasion God ordered Prophet Ibrahim to leave his wife Hajira and son Ismail alone far away, He again sacrificed his love for his son and He left them far away with a huge amount of food grains but after sometime Mother and son had nothing left and then a infant was crying for thirst and dehydration.
Miraculously god started one spring of water from the earth at the feet of Ismail. This water never got stopped from that time and its name is ZAM ZAM water and it is believes to be Holy Water in Muslim culture. Later Prophet Ibrahim instructed by the God to build a Holy building in front of that Holy spring water well. It’s name is Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
