I'm also aware of the hate I'll get, so I'm letting know in advance that I use my block button liberally. Two months ago I posted two my Takes on Ramadan, and there I mentioned that after Ramadan ends, the first day of the next month is our first Eid festival, Eid-ul-Fitr (Feast of Charity).Well, we have Another Eid festival which is called Eid-ul-Azha (Feast of Sacrifice).We make sure the animals live in comfort and get everything they need. On Eid it is the same thing only done by non-butchers.1/3 for the family owning it.1/3 for relatives, friends and neighbors.1/3 given away to the poor and needy. It's called Bakri-Eid or Bakra Eid in most of South Asia, we call it Qurbani Eid.Remembering how many times that other silly goat tried to eat my skirt. Don't think that we don't end up getting attached to those animals.Sad truth is, not everything that we get attached to is meant to stay forever with us.

Ramadan, the holy month of Muslims and the ninth month of Islamic calendar is the month of fasting for the Muslims. Fasting is supposed to be one of the five pillars (duties) of Islam, which a Muslim should follow.Sheep/goats, such as, must be at least six months old. The knife used is kept at its sharpest form so that neither the person nor the animal have to suffer with the lengthy process of trying to dig a dull knife through the animal's throat.Cows need to at least two years old, and camels need to be at least five years old. The animal is turned in a way that its nose is pointing at Qibla (Direction of the Holy Kaaba in Mecca) before it is slaughtered.The skin is sold to leather tanneries, the money earned from it is donated to orphanages, Islamic schools, for the construction of a mosque etc purposes. Just like any other holiday, people shop for new clothes and shoes, wish each other and send cards, take selfies on Eid, eat yummy food, meet other people. Except that adults remain super busy, nothing is different. The blood is washed off, other stuff are also removed, only the smell of meat remains for a bit longer. It feels , like a densely populated place that people left within a day. That neighbor's mad bull and how it tried to attack everyone nearby.But otherwise, it feels awfully empty and calm and quiet. Those two goats that always fought with each other.
Again, the most important thing is to make sure it's not a young animal/calf. If this triggers you, remember that all meat that you get from the supermarket or eat in KFC are also killed in a certain method.
