Egypt’s Mufti urges against leaving remnants of sacrificed animals in streets

 Egypt’s Grand Mufti Shawqi Allam called on citizens not to leave remnants of sacrificed animals in the streets during Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) and that to maintain healthy environment and adhere Muslim behavior, Youm7 reported.

 
Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, which marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage and the willingness of biblical patriarch Abraham—also venerated in the Quran—to sacrifice his son to God. A traditional animal sacrifice is an integral part of the celebration of the holiday, and the meat is shared with family, friends and the poor.
