Animal Sacrifice

One of the central rituals of Eid al-Adha is the sacrifice of an animal, such as a sheep, goat, cow, or camel. The meat from the sacrificed animal is divided into three parts: one-third for the family, one-third for relatives and friends, and one-third for the needy and less fortunate.
