Kenyans woken up by prayers as Muslims celebrate Eid Al Adha

Muslims gather at a fairground set up to celebrate Eid-ul Azha in Burgess Park south London Britain

The festival remembers Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Isma'il when Allah appeared in a dream and asked him to do so. It will be celebrated on August 22 this year.

Muslims across the world are celebrating the festival of Eid al-Adha, which coincides with the final rites of the Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

President Rodrigo Duterte has declared August 21 as a holiday in honor of Eid'l Adha.

A Yemeni boy stands among a herd of sheep in a livestock market in the capital Sanaa on August 20, 2018, as people buy provisions in preparation for Eid-ul-Azha celebrations.

The Eid-ul-Adha comes 2 months and 10 days after the end of the Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of 30 or 29 days of fasting in the month of Ramadan.

This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. Feige also stated that Spider-Man's globetrotting isn't the only reason the title was chosen .

It's here that Muslims believe the devil tried to talk the Prophet Ibrahim out of submitting to God's will.

Moved by this, God intervened and ordered angel Jibra'il to place a goat for sacrifice, instead of Ibrahim's son. Contrary to this, Muslims are meant to conduct the sacrifice of the lamb/goat during Eid al Adha on an empty stomach.

The words can also be translated as "Happy Eid" or "Blessed Celebration". The meat is distributed among friends and family. This is why the day is called as Bakra Eid.

He added, as Muslims around the world commemorate the sacrifice, Filipinos "should be more inspired to embody courage and conviction in all of the challenges we face as a nation". Fasting the day before the holiday washes away two years worth of sins in the previous and coming years. The festival is celebrated by the 1.6 billion Muslims across the globe. You are invited to attend the morning prayer and the celebrations immediately following. Eid Mubarak to all!
