Muslims around the world believe that Allah (God) commanded Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son Ishmael. Ibrahim followed God's orders, but his son was replaced by a sheep at the last moment. Muslims celebrate this at Eid al-Adha. Eid al-Adha is called Id-ul-Adha in Arabic and Bakr-Id in the Indian subcontinent, because of the tradition of sacrificing a goat or "bakr" in Urdu. Many Muslims wear new clothes and attend an open-air prayer meeting during Id-ul-Adha. They may sacrifice a sheep or goat and share the meat with family members, neighbors and the poor. It is a gazetted holiday in arab countries and is also referred to as the festival of sacrifice.
