Eid al-Adha is celebrated by Muslims worldwide.

Worldwide, millions of Muslims commemorate Eid al-Adha, the day of sacrifice. The celebration starts in the mosque with a special prayer in nations where Muslims predominate.

Mecca The terrible conflict in the Gaza Strip has cast a shadow over the start of the festival of sacrifice known as Eid al-Adha, which is observed by millions of Muslims worldwide. During the ongoing Muslim pilgrimage, a speaker in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, paid tribute to the Palestinian people.

“We do not forget our brothers who are in need in Palestine because of the Eid celebration,” leading Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdel Rahman al-Sudais stated in a broadcast sermon. The third-holiest place in Islam, the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, needs to be shielded against “aggression” and “occupying Zionists.”

The celebration starts with a special prayer in the mosque in nations where the majority population is Muslim, particularly in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. There are also customary ritual killings. Goats and sheep in particular are killed. Everyone in the family and friends shares the meat. A part is also given to the less fortunate. Making visits to family and friends is also customary.

Online videos showed Muslims assembling for dawn prayers on holidays in the Gaza Strip. A large crowd gathered in front of the demolished house debris. The terror strike on Israel by Hamas on October 7 marked the start of the war. Since then, warfare in Gaza has claimed the lives of over 37,000 Palestinians, according to the health authorities under Hamas rule.

The four-day celebration is meant to honor Abraham’s readiness to offer his son as a sacrifice in order to demonstrate his faith to God. Eid al-Adha, the festival that coincides with the completion of Ramadan, is the most significant holiday in Islam.
