SAUDI ARABIA -UNS – Muslims in Middle East and European countries are celebrating Eid-ul-Azha with religious zeal and fervor on Tuesday.
Grand Eid prayer congregations were held in Masjid-al-Haram and Masjid-e-Nabwi (PBUH) and were attended by millions of people.
Similar congregations also occurred in Indonesia, Malaysia, US, Canada and European countries.
Special prayers were offered for unity of Muslim ummah, peace and stability in the world.
On Tuesday morning, millions of pilgrims, who spent the whole night in the open sky offering prayers in Muzdalifah proceeded to Mina after Fajr prayers.
After reaching Mina, they performed stoning at Jamarat Al-Aqba, sacrificed animals, shaved their heads and then left for Makkah to perform Tawaf Al-Ifada and Sai’, two other pillars of Hajj.
In the remaining days of Hajj, pilgrims will perform the only ritual of stoning at each of the three Jamarat in Mina.
