All around the Gambia and many other muslim countries around the world, people are busy getting ready for the Tobaski celebrations also known as eid al adha or the Feast of Sacrifice. A Muslim festival that marks the culmination of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca and commemorating the sacrifice of Abraham.
Festivities begin with a prayer service, followed by a brief sermon on the morning of the first day. During the prayer, Muslims recite verses from the Quran, lead by an Imam, prostrate to God, and send their peace to the prophets Muhammad and Abraham. Since this festival occurs immediately after the Day of Arafah, many of those who go to pilgrimage celebrate it in Mina Saudi Arabia, where thousands of animals are slaughtered for sacrifice.
On behalf of the Gambia.com team we are wishing everyone a Blessed Eid!!
