Tobaski in The Gambia tomorrow!

The Gambia will celebate Eid al-Adha, locally known as Tobaski, tomorrow.

The festival marks the end of Hajj and involves animal sacrifice as a symbol of Ibrahim's sacrifice to Allah.

Why do Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha?

Origins:Eid al-Adha commemorates the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God. Upon observing Abraham´s act of devotion, God instead provided him with a ram to sacrifice.

Meaning:The festival brings a message of peace, sacrifice, and devotion in the name of God. It is in the Islamic tradition to sacrifice animals to please Allah and get his blessings.
