Muslims around the country joined millions around the world to celebrate Eid al-Adha with prayer rituals and sacrifices yesterday.

Eid al-Adha is known as the festival of sacrifices.

Iqbal Hussain celebrated the festival with his family and friends.

Mr Husssin said the celebration had a special atmosphere of peace, respect, giving, receiving, sharing and caring.

“It is a special day for children because it is a day to socialise with family, friends and neighbours.”

He said Eid al-Adha was also a time to wear new clothes and offer prayers to Allah.

He said it was not necessary that everyone had to sacrifice.

Mr Hussain said a feast was prepared and divided into three parts, one was for their family friends and neighbours, the second part was distributed to the poor and needy, and the third part was retained for the immediate family members.

“This year we have celebrated it in a simple way as our brothers and sisters around the world are suffering due to this coronavirus pandemic.

“May Allah shower blessings upon each and everyone.”
