Eid al-Adha is a central holiday on the Muslim calendar, celebrating Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son to God.
Muslims all over the world go to mosque for prayers and thank Allah for their blessings. Those who can afford it then sacrifice a sheep, or sometimes a goat, as a reminder of Abraham’s obedience and God's intervening to save his son with a lamb to sacrifice instead.
Though much about the holiday is shared across the Islamic world, there are some different local customs. Here’s a global tour of the ways that different people are celebrating today.
