GOA: Standard operating procedures will strictly be followed for namaz at masjids in Vasco on the occasion of Eid-ul-Zuha, which will be celebrated across India.
The festival of Eid-ul-Zuha honours the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his young, first-born son, Ismail, as an act of submission to the command of Allah. It is celebrated approximately 70 days after the end of Ramadan.
“On this day, all Muslims forfeit domestic animals like sheep and goats, representing Abraham’s forfeit. This is called, ‘qurban’. Once the animal is sacrificed, it has to be divided into three shares: One for the house, the second for relatives and friends, and the third for the poor,” Shaikh Noruddin, a serviceman, said.
