In the Islamic calendar, the 10th of Zilhajj marks a momentous occasion celebrated by Muslims worldwide: Eidul Azha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice.

Rooted deeply in religious significance, this festival traces its origins to the ancient tale of Prophet Ibrahim (AS).

According to tradition, Ibrahim was tested by God who commanded him in a dream to sacrifice his beloved son, Ismail.

As Ibrahim prepared to fulfill this divine command, God intervened, replacing Ismail with a ram, affirming Ibrahim's devotion and providing a ram for sacrifice instead.
