ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Wednesday announced a four-day Eid ul Azha holiday from September 1 to 4.

According to a notification issued by the interior ministry, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday shall be public holidays on the occasion of religious festival of Eid ul Azha.

The Eid will fall on September 2, Saturday.

Eid ul Azha is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated each year, and considered the holier of the two. The day is marked ot honor the willingness of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God’s command. Before he sacrificed his son God intervened by sending his angel Jibra’il (Gabriel), who then put a sheep in his son’s place.

As per the religious practice, the sacrificial animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: the family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.

Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Zilhajj. – SAMAA
