Eid ul Adha 2023 in Pakistan

The Prophet Ibrahim had an amazing dream vision one tragic night. God Almighty came to Ibrahim in his dream and asked him to sacrifice his son of love Ismail as an act of devotion and submission.

Ibrahim’s love for God remained unwavering, so he led Ismail to the summit of Mount Arafah and prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. But, just as he was ready to slay Ismail, the archangel Jibril arrived in front of the patriarch, carrying a ram. Jibril then announced that Ibrahim’s faith had been validated, and the ram would be offered as a ransom for his son.

In honor of Ibrahim’s obedience, dedication, and surrender, Muslims all across the world have designated Eid Adha as the Day of Sacrifice. As the draw of this incredible occurrence approaches, here are the dates, calendar, and information to celebrate Eid Adha 2023.
