Eid al Adha 2020: Do you fast for Eid al Adha?


While they will commemorate Eid al Adha with food as well, the festival of sacrifice does not require 40 days of fasting.

Instead, Islam reserves the Day of Arafat, which takes place today, for people to fast before the festival.

Practitioners don’t fast during the festival itself, which has a focus on food and communal cooking.

Birmingham-based Green Lane Masjid and Community Centre explained the day forms part of the Hajj pilgrimage.
