hi to all well, Yesterday is our second Festival, its Called "Eid-ul-adha" means "The day of Sacrifice" We Muslims are not Monster's who want to kill innocent animals, but we agree to Sacrifice our will's on God commands, Actually the Day of "Eid-UL-Adha" is celebrates in remembrance of The God's Greatest Prophet "Abraham",The Story is so nice & you can watch in movie called "The Jesus" so the story is "When God Commands Abraham to Slaughter his own son in dreams, when he awoke he is never hesitates on this big decisions & asks his son about this, Abraham Son is very obedient & he is also Agree on God's Will, so both Father & Son go to Obey the God's commands, On the way a person meet the Abraham & Asks him not to Slaughter & Kills his own sons, but slaughter's some Cow,Goat's etc, But Abraham is Holy Prophet so he don't takes an advice for this Man, Actually This is an "Evil" on human face, so Abraham throw some rocks on Evil & Go to obey the God's Commands, When he tries to Slaughter his own son, he closes his eyes & obey the God, suddenly he feels a voice of sheep who slaughtered & his own son still alive, God is very Happy to Abraham & God decided to alive "The Great Sacrifice of Abraham" So On Every 10th of Islamic Calender last month we are performing the Slaughter of Cows,Goats,Sheep's & Camels. I already tells you this is not to Kill Animals & Terrorize peoples but to Remembrance of the Great Sacrifice of Prophet Abraham, In last I wanted to Add few word's by myself, I Know about that the Internet is Part of Media & Media is on hand of Secular & Non-believer's I'm also know that how & what media Propaganda's about the Islam & Muslim's, But I'm very sorry If you disagree with me, but I feels its my duty to expose the truth at least to my Mylot friend, Anyway's Right now I am also searching & reading about the Christian's & Jew's view of "The Great Sacrifice of Abraham" I'm very happy to inform you & know that they are the same as Muslim believes, so your thoughts must be appreciated, In Last I have to Greet's you very very Happy & Warm EID MUBARAK. have a nice day...

The story of Abraham is faithfully told in the Jewish Torah which is also the Old Testament in the Christian Bible. However, Christians believe that Jesus came to be the sacrifice for all men and all sin, and therefore, the days of animal sacrifice are ended.

Living in a Muslim country we join the Muslims in celebrating this special occasion. It was a public holiday for the country. Many cows were sacrificed and were distributed freely among the muslims. I am glad that you are interested in reading about Christianity and hope that would bring better understanding and respect of the Christian faith.

It was great to hear about the great sacrifices made by Prophet Abraham and that is the reason people are still continuing with his principles and traditions.

I am familiar as well with the story as a Christian and also, I have read this in the bible about sacrifices and all. Muslims are one of those faithful to their religion and I admire you for that. Our country did declared Oct. 26 a holiday so we could be one in celebrating with our Muslim friends for EID MUBARAK, or sorry if I did get that one wrong.
