Al-Ahram Weekly

THE YEARLY Feast of  Sacrifice, Eid Al-Adha, is linked to one of the most inspiring pillars of Islam: the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, required of every able Muslim at least once in a lifetime. Back home it is an occasion for family reunions and people sharing and donating the meat they have slaughtered to the needy, and many enjoying their meaty meal of the year.

Due to the nation-wide holidays, Al-Ahram Weekly will next be appearing on 30 August.
