Egypt's First Lady Intissar El Sisi greeted the Egyptian people and the Muslim world on Eidul Adha, which starts on Friday.
The president's spouse said in a tweet on her official account that the religious occasion embodies the greatest meanings of sacrifice.
Eidul Adha commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to Allah, before Allah replaced the son with a ram to be sacrificed instead.
On the religious occasion, Muslims slaughter animals such as sheep and goats. The meat is shared among family and friends and is also donated to the poor.
