PM greets Azhar grand imam on Eid al-Adha

CAIRO, June 12 (MENA) – Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Wednesday greeted Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayyeb on the occasion of Eidul Adha.

In a cable, the premier 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 on 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. (MENA)
