Bishops and monks congratulate officials on Eid al-Adha

Bishops and monks of the Coptic Orthodox church congratulated officials on Eid al-Adha.

Eid al-Adha is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God's command, before God then intervened sending his angel Jibra'il (Gabriel) to inform him that his sacrifice had already been accepted.
