ERBIL (Kurdistan24) – Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) President Masoud Barzani on Saturday wished a happy holiday to all Muslims in Kurdistan, Iraq, and the world for Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), according to a statement from Barzani Headquarters.

KDP President Masoud Barzani especially congratulated the families of martyrs, the Peshmergas, and all the people of Kurdistan. 

On this special occasion, I humbly pray to God to bring happiness and peace to the people of Kurdistan, as well as to bring peace and stability to our region and the entire world.

The Feast of Sacrifice marks the end of the annual Islamic pilgrimage, known as the Hajj, to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The pilgrimage is considered a mandatory duty for all Muslims who are financially and physically able to carry it out at least once in their lifetime.

The religious holiday is the second of two Islamic celebrations, the other being Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan.
