Eid-ul Adha is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide. This is to commemorate the willingness of Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Prophet Ishmael (Ismail) as an act of obedience to God, yet, God intervened this process and provided Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead of his son. The meat is divided into three parts to be distributed to others. The family retains one third of the share, the second share is given to relatives, friends and neighbors, and the last share is given to the poor& needy.
