Eid Al Adha 2018

Young men celebrate Eid Al Adha in Tangier, Morocco this year. This is the second of two universal Muslim holidays, in which the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son Ismaeal to God is celebrated. God intervened before the sacrifice by replacing Ismaeal with a ram. This is a holiday in which rams or other livestock are traditionally sacrificed, cooked, and shared with the poor.
