It’s good to hear that you had a good day. Tonight, we’re going to share how Eid al-Adha is celebrated around the world. #EngKnowledge

In Indonesia, the Eid prayer in the morning is followed by sharing meats from the sacrifice to the less fortunate. In some neighborhood, we even gather to cook the meat and have a feast later on that day. #EngKnowledge

Our friends in China might see a celebration that lasts up to four days. Apart from exchanging food and gifts, people also gather to recite the Quran. #EngKnowledge

In Pakistan, nearly ten million animals are sacrificed during the Eid al-Adha. These animals get special treatment: they’re bathed and prettified with flower garlands before the sacrifice begins. #EngKnowledge

Eid al-Adha can be considered as the biggest holiday in Saudi Arabia. Slightly different with other countries, animals commonly sacrificed here are camels. #EngKnowledge

The length of public holidays in Bangladesh in regards of Eid al-Adha is usually six days. Turkey, Qatar, the UAE, Oman, and Kuwait normally have nine-day holiday, while Saudi Arabia has twelve days. #EngKnowledge

In some European countries, we need to see that the animal killing is done in a humane way. Some countries are also strict about the slaughtering not to be done in public areas. #EngKnowledge

If you have different tradition or customs on celebrating Eid al-Adha in your place, share with us, fellas!

At the end of the day, Eid al-Adha teaches us about the importance of sharing and selflessness. May you have a blessed holiday.
