Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha. The ceremony traditionally begins with sermons and prayers. The culmination is an animal sacrifice to commemorate the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son to God, but the Almighty sent Ibrahim a ram that he slaughtered instead of his son.

During the holiday, which in most places lasts four days, Muslims slaughter sheep or cattle, distribute part of the meat to the poor and eat the rest. Celebrating Eid al-Adha from Moscow to New Delhi — in this gallery by TASS.
