Thousands of Muslim worshippers in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, North Africa, gathered to witness a traditional sacrifice of a lamb, Friday.
The sacrificial lamb forms part of Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest feasts in the Islamic calendar, and is similar to the Jewish festival of Passover. Eid al-Adha, or the 'Festival of the Slaughter', is the second of two holidays, celebrated around the... Еще world by followers of Islam — the other is Eid Al-Fitr.
Eid al-Adha marks 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.
