Muslim around the World are celebrating Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), one of the most important festivals on the Islamic calendar.
On this occasion, people crowd mosques across the country to perform prayers and sacrifice animals.
The faithful slaughter sheep and goats to commemorate Prophet Abraham’s (PBUH) submission to divine order to sacrifice his son, Ismail (PBUH), a supreme act of faith.
Just before sacrificing his son, God provided Prophet Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead after he successfully passed the test of subservience to the Almighty.
The meat of the sacrificed animal is shared among family members and friends, and also donated to the poor.
