Cow slaughtering on the second day of Eid Al Adha 2017. During the annual Haj pilgrimage, Muslims observe the Eid Al Adha.
Eid Al Adha is celebrated with special Eid Prayer in the morning and visiting the families, exchanging eid wishes and eat together special dishes prepared for Eid.
Also on the Eid Al Adha the Muslims will sacrifice an animal, an act known as 'Qurban', basically means to give the meat in charity to the poor, the person who pay for the cow will take a small amount back home and the rest will be distributed to the poor people.
Those who would like to participate in the Qurban will give a specific amount with the intended parts of a cow to the mosque to be arranged to be sacrificed on the Eid, and the mosque community will purchase the livestock and together will sacrifice the animals.
