What is Eid’l Adha?

Muslims celebrate Eid’l Adha. Eid’l Adha is celebrated yearly to mark the end of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca (the holy place), to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim act of sacrificing his son. The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. At least once in a Muslims lifetime, those who can afford to make the trip are obligated to go on Hajj.. Thousands of Filipino muslims go on pilgrimage to Mecca each year. Before a Muslim goes on pilgrimage, he/she should cleanse himself or herself by making amends for wrongs committed.
