Eid Al Adha is one of the two celebrations that Muslims have. Why is it a big deal? Many think it is just because of Hajj. Eid happens the day after Arafah which is the most important day for those performing Hajj.
However, there is more to Eid Al Adha than we know. The Prophet (SAW) said that the best days of the year are the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah. During these days, any deed you do will be the best deeds you can do, even more than in Ramadan. Eid Al Adha comes at the end of those 10 days as a celebration.
