Thursday، 16 August 2018 - 12:25 PM
Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli sent a cable of greetings on Thursday 16/8/2018 to Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el Tayyeb on Eidul Adha (Greater Bariam).
In his cable, Madbouli extended his sincere greetings to the Grand Imam, the Egyptian people, the whole Arab and Muslim nations on the occasion, wishing them more peace, progress and prosperity.
Eidul Adha, known as the 'Feast of Sacrifice', is the most important feast of the Muslim calendar. It commemorates Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a sheep to sacrifice instead.
It falls on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the twelfth and final month of the Islamic calendar.
Muslims will celebrate it this year on Tuesday, August 21.
