Id al Adha (also known as Id al Kabir)

The major holidays in Yemen are the religious holidays of Islam, including the holy month of Ramadan followed by Eid al-Saghir (the small holiday) and Eid al-Kabir (the big holiday).

Eid al-Kabir is the time for the big pilgrimage to Mekka called al-Hajj. The pilgrimage is one of the five pillars of Islam and all Muslims are required to perform this travel at least once in their lives.
For people staying at home Eid al-Kabir is celebrated by slaughtering a goat.

There are also a number of national holidays related to the history of modern Yemen. These are generally seen as an extra opportunity for chewing qhat.

Eid al-Adha is a religious festival celebrated by Muslims and Druze worldwide as a commemoration of Ibrahim's (Abraham's) willingness to sacrifice his son, as commanded by Allah. (Muslim tradition names Ishmael as the son who was to be sacrificed, whereas the Judeo-Christian tradition names Isaac.) It is one of two Eid festivals celebrated by Muslims, whose basis comes from the Quran. (Muslims in Iran celebrate a third, non-denominational Eid.) Like Eid el-Fitr, Eid ul-Adha begins with a short prayer followed by a sermon (khuba).

Eid ul-Adha annually falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar. The festivities last for two to three days or more depending on the country. Eid ul-Adha occurs the day after the pilgrims conducting Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia by Muslims worldwide, descend from Mount Arafat. It happens to be approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan.

Other names for Eid al-Adha

Eid-ul-Adha (Adha Eid) has other popular names across the Muslim world, such as Eid el-Kibir (the 'Big' Eid) in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Libya; Tfaska Tamoqqart in the Berber language of Jerba; Tabaski or Tobaski in West Africa; Babbar Sallah in Nigeria; Ciidwayneey in Somalia and Somali-speaking regions of Kenya and Ethiopia.

In South Africa it is also called Bakri Eid (or simply Baqrid in India, for the Arabic word baqara, meaning "heifer", the traditional sacrifice).

In Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, and in Sri Lanka, which has large concentration of Tamil-speaking Muslims, it is called Peru Naal meaning 'The Big Day'. Sometimes, Tamil-speakers say Bakr Eid Peru Naal, meaning 'the Big Day of the Sacrifice'.

In Turkey it is called Kurban Bayramı or "Sacrifice Feast". Similarly, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosova, and Bulgaria it is referred as Kurban Bajram, the same root with Qorban Bäyräme in Tatarstan, Qurban Bayramı in Azerbaijan and Kurban Bayram throughout Russia. In Kazakhstan, it is referred to as Qurban Ait. In Iran and Afghanistan it is called "Eyd e Qorbán" by Persian-speakers and Loy Akhtar (literally, "the Greater Eid") or Kurbaneyy Akhtar by Pashto-speakers.

In China it is called "Corban Festival" (古尔邦节、宰牲节 in Chinese) or "Kurban Eit" in Uyghur language.

In the Malay Archipelago, especially in the Malay-speaking areas; Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei, the term "Idul Adha" (particularly in Indonesia) or "Aidil Adha" is used. "Hari Raya Korban", which means the Sacrifice Celebration Day is also widely used. Another term is called "Hari Raya Haji" which means Celebration Day of the Hajj.

How unexpected is this item in the bagging area? This is far from the first time that designers have charged thousands of pounds for bags inspired by everyday carriers replica handbags. Balenciaga's creative director Demna Gvasalia has a thing about riffing on the tropes of everyday life. His past hits have included bags inspired by the plastic containers that hold electric blankets and chunky checked bags that look as replica chanel handbags though they should be carrying laundry. Clearly, Balenciaga is not the only force in the design world keen to make Frakta happen. Last month, Ikea announced a collaboration with chichi Parisian department store Colette in which its bags were decorated with blue polka dots. Last year, Danish designers Hay produced a grey and green update on the Ikea cheap polo ralph lauren. In 2007 Louis Vuitton released a series of four-figure totes inspired by checked plastic laundry carriers; London-based designer Christopher Shannon has riffed on the Ikea bag, too, and has sent models down the mulberry replica handbags catwalk with the sort of flimsy plastic bags that are handed out in corner shops stuck to their faces. In 2017, Jil Sander sold bags made from coated paper for £185, a price that raised eyebrows then but now seems almost a bargain.
