All the Muslim celebrates Eid-ul-Azha on 10th Zil hujj by sacrificing the animals after Hajj in order to commemorate the Hazarat Ibrahim’s enthusiasm to sacrifice his son for Allah Almighty, even though Allah is said to have intervened and provided a ram to be sacrificed in place of Hazarat Ishmael.
The 9th Zil hajj is revered as Day of Arafah (Youm-e-Arafat).
