Bohras of Udaipur are going to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha also known as Bakra-Eid tomorrow, 6th November 2011.
The pre-festival prayers were conducted today at several Bohra Mosques around Udaipur while kids were seen busy wandering goats-to-be-sacrificed on the day of Eid.
Meanwhile, in spite of the high price of goats and sheep the Bakra Mandi is flooded with buyers and sellers as the majority of Muslim community will celebrate the festival on 7th November 2011.
Sacrificing an animal is one of the essential customs performed by Muslims on this day. The custom is attached with an historical incident which occurred thousands of years ago when Prophet Abraham was directed by God to sacrifice his own son Ismail; however it was an ordeal by God to test the Prophet’s divine love for him.
When Prophet Abraham readied to slit the throat of his beloved and only son Ismail, a goat was placed on his place.
The day of Eid ul Adha is closely followed after the completion of Hajj and it is obligatory for every pilgrim to perform the custom of sacrificing an animal.
The insight of Eid ul Adha is to submit one’s self to the highest power, God Almighty and no one else.
