All things Muslim - incredible stories & positive vibes

Photos from Eid al-Adha Celebrations Across the UK

As you know because you read Ummahsonic day and night, Muslims across the globe started their Eid-al Adha celebrations last Friday. They take place every year during Hajj – the holy pilgrimage. Marking the sacrifices made to God, it’s the World Cup of celebrations in the Islamic calendar and all Muslims get involved.

We’ve already shown you the freshest Eid-al Adha outfits that Muslims have been seen wearing this year and some pics of the global celebrations. But we can’t ignore places closer to home, right? So, here: Some pics from Eid-al Adha celebrations across the UK.
