Hundreds of Egyptian Muslims flocked to Amr Ibn Al-As mosque this morning to perform Eid Al Adha prayers، amid tightened security measures.

Muslims around the world celebrate the religious holiday Eid Al-Adha - - the Feast of Sacrifice - from Tuesday August 21 to Friday August 24.

The four-day Eid Al-Adha is one of the two most important religious holidays of the Islamic calendar، along with Eid El-Fitr.

The Eid holiday coincides with the annual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Eid Al-Adha marks the anniversary of the willingness of the Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his son in an act of obedience to God’s command.

Muslims celebrate the occasion by the sacrificial slaughtering of an animal such as a sheep، a cow، or a goat، with the meat distributed as alms to the poor.
