Millions of Muslims commemorate Eid al-Adha

Millions of Muslims worldwide have celebrated the Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), which marks the culmination of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

Muslims flocked to mosques and open grounds to take part in celebrations marking the auspicious occasion, which is one of the most significant festivals on the Muslim calendar, on Monday.

In Iran, a mass prayer was held in the capital city of Tehran. Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami led the Eid al-Adha prayers, with people from various walks of life and high-profile officials in attendance.

Muslims traditionally celebrate Eid al-Adha with the sacrifice of sheep, cattle, camels and other livestock.

The act commemorates Prophet Ibrahim or Abraham (PBUH)’s submission to divine order to sacrifice his son, Ismail (PBUH). Just before sacrificing his son, God provided Prophet Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead after he successfully passed the divine test.

The major rituals of the Hajj are performed during a five-day period from the 8th through the 12th of Dhu al-Hijjah on the Muslim lunar calendar.
