Today was 10th Dhul Hijjah.
The hajj pilgrim went to Mina from Arafat through Muzdalifah for stoning.
Then, they went to Makkah to perform tawaf and sa'y.
While they were doing that, Muslims all over the world celebrated Id al-Adha or the feast of the sacrifice.
In Id al-Adha, Muslims pray together in the morning. In Indonesia, we pray at the fields or mosques at 6.30 AM.
Then, the slaughter of sacrifice animals (goats or cows) is done. Each slaughter is accompanied by a prayer.
Today, my family gathered in my parents' house.
We chated and dined together.
The special menu for Id al-Adha are the same with Id al-Fithr, ketupat, opor, and sambal goreng ;-)
