Colours of Eidul Azha across the world

Muslims across the world are observing Eidul Azha — the festival of sacrifice — to commemorate Prophet Ibraham’s readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to God. Many offered animal sacrifices. The festival also marks the end of the Haj pilgrimage to Makkah.

The day is observed with religious fervour and enthusiasm. People gather in mosques across the world to offer special prayers for the occasion. This year, the government has called for the festival to be observed in a “simple manner” to express solidarity with kashmiris living in India-occupied Kashmir.
