The festival of sacrifice, Eid-ul-Azha was celebrated in a subdued manner due to Coronavirus pandemic across the country today. In most of the places, there were no mass congregation prayers in compliance with Covid restrictions. The worshippers offered Eid Namaz or prayers in local mosques in limited numbers in some places. In other parts, people offered prayers in their homes adhering to guidelines issued by the government.
Eid-ul-Azha is celebrated to commemorate the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his only son in obedience of God’s command.
