MUSLIM WORLD: Celebration of Eid al-Adha, the festival of the sacrifice, begins

16 November 2010 General One Comment Email This Post Email This Post

Millions of Muslims around the world celebrated one of the biggest Muslim religious festivals, Eid al-Adha, on Tuesday morning.

Prayers were offered up and, in keeping with tradition, goats, sheep and cattle were slaughtered in commemoration of prophet Abraham’s readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to Allah.
