    Eid ul Adha is the second of the two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year and is considered the whole year of the two. It honours the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God's command. Muslims around the world observe this event. Eid ul Adha is the latter of two Eid holidays, the former being Eid ul Fitr. The word Eid appears once in Al-Mai'da , the fifth sura of the Quran, with the meaning of solemn festival.
    As Eid ul Adha commemorates the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim Muslims typically celebrate this festival by carrying out a Qurbani meaning sacrifice in Arabic.
    " At least one third of the meat from the animal must go to poor or vulnerable people", states the international organisation Islamic relief.
    While Eid ul Fitr is known as" sweet Eid", Eid ul Adha is contrarily known as the" Salty Eid". As such food eaten in the second festival is predominantly savoury, including the animal which is sacrificed during the observance.
    Arabian pastries called Ma'amoul, are also eaten during both the festivals.
