Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, on Tuesday offered Eid Al Adha prayers at the Sheikh Rashid Mosque in Zabeel.
Performing the prayer alongside Sheikh Mohammed were Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and chairman of Dubai Executive Council, Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance, state news agency WAM reported.
Dr Omar Al-Khateeb, who led the prayer, delivered the Eid Al Adha sermon in which he highlighted the significance of sacrifice.
He also emphasised the importance of humanitarian work, solidarity among the society and communication which would bring cooperation and affection among people, WAM added.
Al-Khateeb prayed for good health and longevity to President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Sheikh Mohammed and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
He also prayed for the martyrs of the Saudi-led Arab Coalition, who have died in Yemen.
Muslims traditionally slaughter sheep for the three-day Eid Al Adha, a tribute to the prophet Abraham’s sacrifice of a lamb after God spared Ishmael, his son.
They will consume some of the meat and give the rest to poor people unable to buy food.
