Muslims around the world today Tuesday started the Eid al-Adha religious celebrations which, in Arabic, means the “festival of the sacrifice” and marks the end of Hajj pilgrimage.
Muslims across the country converged today at various open grounds and mosques to
mark Eid-ul-Adha prayer.
In Mombasa, the congregants held the prayers at Tononoka grounds, Mbaraki grounds,
Ummu Kulthum, Bilima grounds among various mosques and other grounds in the County.
The prayer was marked by unity calls among Muslims.
The day is marked with the sacrifice of an animal, usually a goat, sheep or cow, and the distribution of the meat among neighbours, family members and the poor.
Political leaders, organizations as well as individuals sent their goodwill messages for the Muslim Community in the Country as they mark the celebrations.
However, a section of the muslims did not mark the Eid Ul Adha prayers and scheduled to mark it tomorrow Wednesday 21st July 2021.
