The festival gives the message of sacrifice
Bakrid is called Eid-ul-Adha in Arabic. It is believed in Islam that the prophet Hazrat Ibrahim dreamed continuously for three days that he was sacrificing his dearest son Ismail. To convert Allah’s dream into reality, he took his son on the day of 14 Jilhijj i.e. Bakrid. He was about to sacrifice Ismail that, at the same time, Allah sent a dumba in his place. When Hazrat Ibrahim opened his eyes, he found the son safe and found Dumba Jibah in his place. In memory of this, every year Muslims around the world celebrate the festival of Bakrid. Bakrid is also known as Eid-e-Qurban. Which inculcates the spirit of sacrifice in human beings.
