- Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau)I would like to wish Muslims in Britain and across the world Eid Mubarak. This day is celebrated at the end of Hajj.Every Muslim wears the new dress and performs Namaz to please the god.

In India, a Muslim cleric, Khalid Rashid, has appealed to the government to "permit sacrificing animals in slaughter houses during Eid al-adha so that people don't do it in houses". Ibrahim being a follower of Allah obeys his command and get ready for the sacrifice and his son, Ishmael agreed to be sacrificed for the sake of Allah.

The four-day Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, is considered one of the most important holidays in the Muslim calendar. Since then people celebrate the festival by sacrificing an animal.

The final days of Hajj coincide with the Eid al-Adha holiday, or "Feast of Sacrifice", to commemorate Ibrahim s test of faith.

Muslims across the United Kingdom are celebrating Eid al-Adha today. In 2017, Eid al-Adha will be celebrated on September 1 and 2.

The President, in his message, said Ibrahim's admirable act of obedience to Allah should serve as a reminder about the "value of sacrifice necessary in our lives". Some observe a day's fast, while others offer special prayers at the mosque and at home.

Eid'l Adha is observed annually on the 10th day of the 12th and the last Islamic month of Dhu al-hijjah of the lunar Islamic calendar.

Worshippers will usually slaughter a sheep or a goat as part of the festivities - but anyone wishing to sacrifice an animal in the United Kingdom must conform to welfare standards.
