Summarizing various sources, Eid al-Adha has several names in Indonesia such as Eid al-Adha or Eid al-Qurban. This naming is related to the implementation of Eid al-Adha itself.
The term Eid Al-Fitr appears because this holiday falls to coincide with the pilgrimage season, while the name Eid al-Qurban appears because on this day Muslims slaughter sacrificial animals.
The history of Idul Adha itself comes from the story of Prophet Ibrahim who promised his son, Prophet Ismail, to be sacrificed to Allah SWT.
