Muslims will go to a sermon or a mosque or outdoor setting and pray. Many will sacrifice an animal known as qurbani to represent Abraham sacrificing his son for Allah. Others may travel to Mecca to perform a Hajj pilgrimage.


The Gregorian date is difficult to determine because Eid al-Adha is determined by the Islamic calendar which is a lunar calendar based on the cycles of the moon.
