With the Bakrid festival or Eid Al-Adha 2020 falling on the 1st August, 2020 in India and on 31st July, 2020 all over the world, the celebratory vibes have already begun. Bakrid is one of the two most important Islamic festivals with the other being Eid Al-Fitr (also known as Meethi Eid), both of which are celebrated with much fervour and enthusiasm across the globe. Bakrid has a huge significance as it is celebrated to remember the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his own son as an act of devotion towards God. It is believed that upon seeing the devotion of his devotees, God placed a lamb's head in place of his son's head, thereby, sparing the child's life. Many Muslim families across the world sacrifice a male goat on the day to commemorate the divine intervention. It is then divided into three parts, one is gifted to the friends and relatives, another part is given to the poor and needy and the last part is feasted upon by the family.
Eid Al-Adha, according to the Islamic calendar, falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, and this year it is tentatively falling on the 12th August 2019. The mosques around the country are lit up in beautiful lights and, of course, there is a lot of scrumptious food involved in the festival. From delectable mutton curries to hearty biryanis, Eid spread is worth every bite. But what we love the most about the spread are the mouth-watering snacks that consist of all sorts of succulent kebabs. The char-grilled and smoky aroma along with a melt-in-mouth texture of kebabs is enough to get you hooked. And when it is Bakrid, there is nothing more satiating than munching mutton kababs laced with lemon juice with a tangy dip.
