As part of the celebration of the Islamic holy day of Idul Adha, the Attaqwa Mosque, located at the Bali Police Headquarters in Denpasar, distributed 2,500 coupons to Bali-based Moslem exchangeable for portions of butchered meat.

Idul Adha or Eid al Adha is a festival commemorating the willingness of the prophet Abraham to unquestionably sacrifice his first-born son Ismail to God. Abraham’s hand was stayed by the Angel Gabriel and a lamb was sacrificed to the Almighty in the boy's stead.

Idula Adha 1434H was celebrated in Indonesia on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. 

Celebrated as an Islamic holiday in Indonesia, Idul Adha is marked by the donation of livestock by Moslems to neighborhood mosques where the animals are slaughtered on the holiday in accordance with religious tradition and the meat is distributed to the poor.

Three of the world’s great faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam count themselves as Abrahamic religions tracing their roots to Abraham.

The State News Agency Antara quotes the caretaker of the Attaqwa Mosque, Najib, saying on the day before the holid, “The coupons will be distributed after the prayers on Idul Adha, while the distribution of sacrificial meat begins at 1:00 pm.”

Meat will also be given to community groups who have applied to be allocated a portion of butchered livestock donated as offerings.

One day before the holiday a total 40 goats and 9 cows had been donated to the Attaqwa Mosque. Traditionally a large number of livestock are donated at the last minute, bolstering officials in their thinking that number of animals to be sacrificed will grow measurably.

The mosque, located within the grounds of the Bali Police Headquarters, has contracted five butchers who will be expected to slaughter and cut the carcasses in a two-hour period.

Across town at the Baiturrahman Mosque n Denpasar, a total of 36 goats were awaiting sacrifice on the morning of Idul Adha.

Last year, the Baiturrahman received 95 goats and 10 cows.
