The Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha commemorates the sacrifice Ibrahim (Abraham) was prepared to make in compliance with God’s instruction: the life of his cherished son Ismael. However, when Ibrahim was about to offer his son as a sacrifice, God, moved by Ibrahim’s faith, substituted a sacrificial ram for the child. Muslims now commemorate this occasion by dividing a slaughtered animal into three portions, one for each member of their family and one for the less fortunate. On this special day, we can all participate in this spirit of giving. This year, the majority of the holiday will be observed on July 10.

How much money should you give for Eid
There’s no set amount of money you should give for Eidiyah. It depends on lots of factors, such as how many children you need to give Eidi to, the traditions of your community or family, how close you are to the children, and how much you can afford to give.

Parents in the UK typically give Eidiyah gifts ranging anywhere from £20-£100 per child. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and other adult relatives or neighbours may also choose to give Eidi, usually around £10-£50 per child.

It’s acceptable to give different amounts of money depending on a child’s age. However, it’s generally agreed that if you give Eidi, you should give it to all the children in your family or community.
