CAIRO – 16 July 2021: Egypt’s Minister of Interior Mahmoud Tawfiq extended his greetings to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on the occasion of Eid al Adha, on Friday.

In his greeting cable, Tawfiq conveyed his warmest wishes and best regards to President Sisi.

He wished the Egyptian people, as well as Arab and Islamic nations further progress and prosperity.

Tawfiq also sent greeting cables to Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouli, Grand Imam of Al Azhar Ahmed el-Tayyeb, Speaker of the House of Representatives Hanafi Gebaly and Senate Speaker Abdel Wahab Abdel Raziq on the occasion of Eid al-Adha which starts on Tuesday.

Eid Al-Adha is the most significant feast for Muslims worldwide, as it marks the end of the Hajj (pilgrimage) to the holy city of Mecca.

The Adha honors the day when Prophet Ibrahim -peace be upon him- was ordered to sacrifice his son, Ismael, and because of his obedience, God substituted Ismael with a ram, and this day has become a feast for Muslims since that day.

“And We have ransomed you with a mighty sacrifice” - Qur’an 37:107

In Islam, the sacrificed animal during Al-Adha is divided into parts, in order for the animal’s owner to be able to give a share of the meat to the needy people.
