ʿĪd al-Aḍḥā, ʿĪd al-Qurbān or al-ʿĪd al-Kabīr (feast of the sacrifice or the great feast). Muslim sacrifice of an animal—camel, sheep, or goat—forms part of the ceremony of ḥajj, pilgrimage, and is carried out at Minā, near Mecca, on the tenth day of Dhūʾl-Ḥijja. Muslims all over the world sacrifice an animal on this day, a ceremony which is intended to commemorate the sacrifice of Ibrāhīm (Abraham).
