President Abd Al Fattah Al Sisi performed today، Friday، Eid Al Adha prayer at Mohamed Karem mosque in Alexandria amid the presence of a number of senior officials.
Sisi exchanged Thursday cables of congratulations with Arab kings، presidents، and princes on Eid Al-Adha.
Sisi wished the Arab and Islamic nations، their leaders and peoples more success and prosperity.
Noteworthy، Eid al-Adha، called the "Sacrifice Feast"، is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year.
The celebration honors the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael at God's will، but before sacrificing his son، God intervened by sending his angel Jibra'il (Gabriel)، who then put a sheep in his son's place.
In the Islamic lunar calendar، Eid al-Adha falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah.
