Sheep Prices Soar Ahead of Eid Al Adha

Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour. This day is celebrated at the end of Hajj.Every Muslim wears the new dress and performs Namaz to please the god. "By next year's Eid, we hope to see the liberation of Al-Quds Al-Sharif [Jerusalem] and the release of our jailed brothers [detained by Israel]". Just as Hajj marks the appearance of the zam zam-the spring in Mecca that saved the life of Hagar, Ibrahim's wife, and his son, Ismail-Eid celebrates brahim's willingness to sacrifice Ismail on Allah's orders.

It is traditional to sacrificing an animal and give an equal share to the less fortunate, to relatives and for your own family. President Rodrigo Duterte earlier declared September 1 a regular holiday in observance of the Muslim festival Eid'l Adha.

As Ibrahim was about to do the deed upon Allah's command, God replaced Ishmael with a sheep and he was saved.

Eid al-Adha remembers when Allah, or God, tested the faith of the prophet Ibrahim by asking him to sacrifice his only son as an act of obedience.

Eid-ul-Adha also seeks to bring about peaceful coexistence and harmony between the rich and the poor in society.

As per the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid al-Adha falls on the 10 day of Dhu al-Hijjah and falls approximately 11 days prior to the previous year's Eid.

On both Eids many Muslims will go to special Eid prayers at their local mosque and have a day of celebrations with family and friends. Muslim girls take a selfie during a morning prayer marking Eid al-Adha holiday at Sunda Kelapa Port in Jakarta.

With Saudi Arabia among the countries blockading Doha by land and air, it was challenging for hopeful pilgrims to travel.
