Snapshot: Market of Sacrifice
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN—An Afghan man visits the animal market ahead of the feast of Eid al-Adha on November 26, in Kabul, Afghanistan. The festival of sacrifice is celebrated throughout the Muslim world as a commemoration of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for God. The festival falls at the end of the pilgrimage season to Mecca, on the tenth day of Zulhijjah, the final month of the Muslim calendar. (Photo by Majid Saeedi/Getty Images)
