Millions of Muslims around the world celebrated Eidul Azha, also known as the feast of the sacrifice, one of the biggest festivals in Islam, on Sunday.
Some countries, especially those in the Middle East, Afghanistan, Libya and Kenya, celebrated Eidul Azha a day earlier, while others, including Pakistan and India, are marking it today.
Eidul Azha, which is typically marked by prayers, large social gatherings, and, for many, slaughtering of livestock and giving meat to the needy, is being celebrated amid fears of a resurgence of Covid-19 in some countries.
It marks the end of the Haj and commemorates Prophet Ibraham's (AS) readiness to sacrifice his son to show obedience to Allah.
