What are these?
My Friend over at Zaiqa writes, "BakrEid or Eid-ul-Adha or the Festival of sacrifice, which is also the Greater Eid, is celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the obedience of prophet Ibrahim (as) who was asked by Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) to sacrifice his son prophet Ismail (as), and at the last time Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) intervened and spared Ibrahim’s (as) son and replaced a lamb instead. Eid-ul-Adha marks the conclusion of the major rites of Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah. One-third of the meat is distributed to the poor and needy as a charity and also to share the joy of the occasion."
Hint enough? Now you tell me what one does with it.
