Eid-ul-Adha today

Srinagar: The festive occasion of Eid-ul-Adha would be celebrated with great religious zeal and enthusiasm on Monday across Jammu and Kashmir.
Eid-ul-Adha is observed on the 10th day of Dhul al-Hijjah, the final month of the Islamic calendar.
The grand Eid congregation in Kashmir is scheduled to take place at the renowned Hazratbal shrine with the administration making all arrangements for the Eid prayers.
Thousands of devotees are expected to gather for the special Eid prayers and to receive insightful sermons on the teachings of Islam.
To ensure a smooth and organised celebration, the administration led by the Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha has made comprehensive arrangements at the Hazratbal shrine, catering to the needs of the worshippers.
On Sunday senior officials of the administration and the Wakf board visited the shire to finalise the arrangements.
An official said that special provisions had been made at religious sites across Kashmir to accommodate the festivities of the day.
Eid-ul-Adha is commemorated to honor the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismael (AS), in obedience to the command of Allah. Subsequently, after passing the test from Allah, Prophet Ibrahim (AS) sacrificed an animal.
In accordance with the tradition set by Prophet Ibrahim (AS), individuals celebrate this festival by sacrificing animals as an act of devotion.
Additionally, significant congregational Eid prayers are also scheduled to take place at various Masjids and shrines in Srinagar including Masjid Jamiat-e-Ahle Hadith Gaw Kadal, Asar-e-Sharif Jenab Sahib Soura, Asar-e-Sharif Shehri Kalashpora, Ziarat-e-Makhdoom Sahib, Khanqah-e-Maula, and other mosques and shrines.
