Muslims gathered to pray at a mosque in the Barzeh neighborhood of Damascus on Friday, as the holy festival of Eid al-Adha, or «Festival of the Sacrifice», got underway.
Eid al-Adha is the second of two globally celebrated holidays in Islam, the other Eid Al-Fitr, with the former honouring Ibrahim or Abraham's will to sacrifice his son to God before Jibra'il or Gabriel's intervention. Animals are... Еще often sacrificed on the holiday to remember Ibrahim's offering.
The religious festival varies from year to year due to the Islamic calendar, which is based around the moon's cycle.
