It's popularly called by the illiterate mass as baqr eid but it's Eid Al Adha in fact, marking the supreme sacrifice by Prophet Abraham, when Allah wanted to test him and his love for Allah calling to sacrifice his son. But as Prophet Abraham decided to run the knife over the throat of his beloved son, Allah sent an angel who replaced the son with a goat...and this event of sacrifice is celebrated to mark this supreme spirit of Islam.

Ya that is popular name in India in actual it is called Id-ul-Zuha, or Id-ul-Azha, in Arabic, translates as 'the feast of sacrifice'. Itconfirms the belief of the devouts that all God requires of man is a surrender of his will and self.

It is not bakra idd, it is 'baqr eid' baqr(urdu) which means qurbani or sacrifice, it is called so mainly by urdu speaking muslims in the world. while pronounsing especially non muslims and muslims who are not knowing urdu they call bakreid(because there is no alphabet in hindi or other languages which can pronounce urdu and arabic 'qa') so this is mispronounced word.

Eid- ul- Adha is one of the most important Islamic holiday of the year.Eid-ul-Adha marks the end of Hajj, the sacred pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. The hajj to Mecca is a once-in-a-lifetime obligation upon male and female adults whose health and means permit it, or, in the words of the Qur'an, upon "those who can make their way there." The history of Eid-ul-Adha can be traced back to the story which states that Abraham was instructed by Allah, in a dream, to raise the foundations of Kaaba,the most sacred shrine in Mecca. Muslims believe that even after undergoing a lot of trials and tribulations on his way to Mecca, God revealed in a dream to Abraham to sacrifice his son Ismail.Abrahim and Ismail set off to Mina for the sacrifice. As they went, the devil attempted to lead Abraham astray by disobeying God and not to sacrifice his beloved son. But Abraham remained unfaltered in his decision and true to God, and drove the devil away. As Abraham prepared to kill his son, God stopped ...more
