Given the coronavirus outbreak, the special programs, including Eid prayers, are held while observing the health protocols, including social distancing.
Eid al-Adha is one of the greatest celebrations of Muslims all over the world and is celebrated from 1 to 4 days depending on different countries.
Also known as the sacrifice feast, it is celebrated to honor the dedication and willingness of Prophet Abraham (AS) to sacrifice his son as an act of submission on God’s command.
Usually, on Eid people wear their best clothes and go to meet friends and relatives and have fun after saying special prayers.
This year, however, the celebrations are being held in a limited manner in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
