Tips to lay the perfect dastarkhwan this Bakrid

Also known as Eid-ul-Adha, this Eid is one of the most important religious festivals celebrated by muslims worldwide. This Eid consists of four days and is celebrated to remember the great sacrifice of his son that Prophet Ibrahim was willing to make as an act of obedience to God’s command. And this day is celebrated to understand the real meaning of sacrifice.
