The Path to Piety

For the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha, livestock from all over the country have begun their journey to cattle markets in the city. Cows, fat-tailed sheep, camels and goats will all become part of one of the most important sacrifices for Muslims in the country. They will play a vital role in fulfilling ones promise to God and for that they will be garlanded and revered before their end nears. There will also be ample haggling in the cattle markets and much will be made over who paid what for which animal. This year's Eid will be held on the 22nd of August.
