What is bakrid ?
Bakrid is one of the most important festivals for Islamic followers. As it marks the supreme sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim or Abraham.
As legend has it, the Prophet was challenged by God to prove his faith in Him and to do that, the Prophet had to sacrifice something that he held very dear to him.
The Prophet's steadfast faith in God had prompted him to offer his 13-year-old son, Ismail for sacrifice.
Moved by this willingness of the Prophet to prove his devotion to Him, God sent the angel Jibra'il or Gabriel to place a goat in the place of Ibrahim's son.
From that day onwards, followers of Islam celebrate Eid al-Adha by sacrificing male goats, which are typically divided into three separate portions.
