Muslims congregate for Eid prayers as Zilhaj concludes

Eid,Eid-ul-Adha,Eid-ul-Adha 2018

Muslims sacrifice a male goat on the final day and feast on it to celebrate Prophet Ibrahim's supreme sacrifice and God's compassion towards him.

This year, Eid ul-Adha would commence in India on August 21, and continue until the evening of August 22.

The Islamic pilgrimage must be carried out at least once in a lifetime by all adult Muslims who are physically able.

Worshipers clad in their best clothes from Cairo to Dakar, Mogadishu to Abuja, Khartoum to Addis Ababa, Yaounde to Brazzaville and Harare to Windhoek are marking the day with prayers said at open-air prayer grounds or in mosques.

"It is an essential religious rite in memory of the sacrifice performed by Prophet Ibrahim".

The celebration of Eid Al Adha is subjected to the appearance of the moon which is why its observance varies from country to country.

A Muslim is supposed to share his sacrifice into three parts, a third for his family, the other to his acquaintances and the last as gift to other people.

Eid al-Adha marks the end of the annual pilgrimage of Hajj and is considered to be one of the holiest festivals in Islam.

The day begins with Eid prayer which follows the regular morning prayer.

He added, as Muslims around the world commemorate the sacrifice, Filipinos "should be more inspired to embody courage and conviction in all of the challenges we face as a nation".
