epa06176017 Muslims from the Bangladeshi community in Lebanon exchange Eid greetings after the Eid al-Adha prayers in front of the Al-Ameen Mosque in central Beirut, Lebanon 01 September 2017. Eid al-Adha is one of the most important feasts on the Muslim calendar. It marks the yearly Muslim pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca, the holiest place in Islam. On the occasion Muslims slaughter sacrificial animals and split the meat into three parts, one for the family, one for friends and relatives, and one for the poor and needy. The slaughter commemorates the biblical story of Abraham, who was on the verge of sacrificing his son Ismail to obey God's command when God interceded by substituting a ram in the child's place.
