Residents of Cairo buy sheep and goats from the livestock market in the Sayeda Zeinab area of the Egyptian capital in preparation for the Eid al-Adha holiday. Muslims in Cairo prepares for the three-day celebration of Eid al-Adha or Feast of Sacrifice, which is one of the two most important Islamic holidays. It commemorates Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his first-born son, Ismail, as an act of submission to God, who eventually provided a lamb to sacrifice instead. A livestock animal is sacrificed to celebrate the event, with part of the animal being distributed to the poor and needy (Credit Image: © Sayed Jaafar/IMAGESLIVE via ZUMA Wire)
