Eid-ul-Zuha, also known as Bakrid, is celebrated worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God.
It is celebrated approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan, which is celebrated as Eid-ul-Fitr.
The festival comes a day after pilgrims conducting Haj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, descend from Mount Arafat.
