Eid al-Adha means Festival/Feast of the Sacrifice.

It marks the date when Allah appeared to Ibrahim in a dream and asked him to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, to show his devotion.

Ibrahim was about to go ahead when Allah stopped him and gave him a lamb to slaughter instead.

In 2017, Eid al-Adha is expected to start on Friday, September 1, and end four days later on Tuesday, September 5.

Whereas Eid al-Fitr comes at the start of the month of Shawwal (after the end of Ramadan), Eid al-Adha is towards the middle of a month.
