TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Grand Mufti (Reis ul-Ulema) of Bosnia and Herzegovina congratulated Eid al-Adha to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.


In separate messages to Ayatollah Khamenei and Rouhani, Husein Kavazovic also wished the Iranian nation and all Muslims in the world health, peace, and success.

Eid al-Adha is one of Islam's holiest festivals celebrated annually around the world and an official holiday in Muslim-majority countries.

In the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Adha occurs on the 10th day of the lunar month of Dhu al-Hijjah and is also the third day of the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca.

For Muslims, Eid al-Adha commemorates the day when Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) was going to sacrifice his son but was instructed by God to offer an animal instead. Eid al-Adha in Arabic literally means "festival of the sacrifice".

Traditionally, the festival lasts for four days but public holidays vary from country to country.
