CULTURE

A time for celebration

Muslims all over the world will celebrate Eid Al Adha this August. Also known as the Festival of the Sacrifice, it commemorates the tale of Prophet Abraham’s willingness to give the life of his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God, who then provided a ram instead as an offering before the sacrifice could be made. Eid Al Adha also marks the culmination of the season of Hajj, the sacred pilgrimage that millions of Muslims make to the holy city of Makkah each year.
