`Eid Al-Adha: These Charities Help You Offer Udhiyah

`Eid Al-Adha, or “Feast of Sacrifice”, marks the end of the Hajj season and is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations, together with Eid Al-Fitr.

A financially-able Muslim sacrifices a single sheep or goat or shares with six others in sacrificing a camel or cow as an act of worship during the four-day `Eid Al-Adha celebrations.

Immediately after `Eid prayers, Muslims usually gather at abattoirs to watch their udhiyah sacrifice and give the poor their share.

For the second year, however, such joyful atmosphere is expected to be interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
