Russian Muslims prepared for their annual Eid al-Adha celebrations in the Moscow Region on Friday by slaughtering livestock, before a feast. Over 300,000 worshippers are expected to take part in the country's five-day celebration.
As the sacrificial slaughter of animals is banned in the city of Moscow, the ritual was carried out in the broader Moscow region where 15 places for the sacrificial... Еще ritual and 38 places for the Eir al-Adha celebrations were established.
Eid al-Adha or the 'Festival of the Slaughter', is the second of two globally celebrated holidays in Islam, the other Eid Al-Fitr, with the former marking Ibrahim/Abraham's will to sacrifice his son to God before Jibra'il/Gabriel's intervention. Animals are often sacrificed on the holiday to remember the offering.
