At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Abraham's sacrifice.

Dates to be confirmed.

The most popular festival in the Muslim world, this event takes a different name depending on the country, it is either called Tabaski or Eid al-Adha. Commonly called the Feast of Sacrifice, it commemorates the sacrifice of Ibrahim or Abraham, after God asked him to sacrifice his son Ishmael. At the last moment, the angel Gabriel replaces the child with a sheep which serves as the sacrificial offering.

In memory of this submission of Abraham to his god, Muslims sacrifice an animal according to the rules. The festivities can last several days. To mark the occasion, Muslims celebrate with family and friends, and the tradition is to eat mutton dishes.
