Muslims worldwide are celebrating Eid Al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), culminating the annual migration of millions of Muslims to Hajj.
The Hajj pilgrimage is one of the five main pillars of Islam and must be performed at least once by every able-bodied Muslim.
The holiday which marks Ibrahim’s (Abraham) willingness to sacrifice his son for the sake of god, is celebrated by the sacrifice of a large number of animals including sheep, cows, camels and goats to be donated to the less fortunate.
