Eid-ul-Adha is one of the most important times of year when people residing in different countries or cities get back to their homes to celebrate this occasion.

In the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah and lasts for three days every year. Eid ul Adha is also called Bakr Eid or Bari Eid as animals are sacrificed for the sake of Allah and are distributed among needy people and relatives.
