Picture Article: Eid El Adha 2019 Around the World

According to Muslims, the Eid Al Adha (festival of sacrifices) remembers the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son when God ordered him to. And as Ibrahim was about to kill his own son, God stopped him and gave him a lamb to sacrifice instead.

It’s one of the many Islamic festivities that I literally wait all year round for to come. Eid Al Adha is the perfect occasion to enjoy the warm and lovely gatherings with your family and loved ones. It’s the time where all Muslims around the world take to the streets to perform the Eid prayer and celebrate with a grand feast that usually contains meat. It’s one of the most important Islamic rituals in the Islamic calendar.

Scroll down and take an intimate look at how Muslims around the world cheerfully celebrated the holy Eid Al Adha!
