Eid al-Adha prayers

Muslims observing Eid al-Adha prayers are framed by the architecture of Lahore's Badshahi Mosque. Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha to mark the end of the haj by slaughtering sheep, goats, cows and camels to commemorate Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail on God's command.
