The trip started on the first day of the Muslim Holiday of Giving – Eid al-Adha.
This is the most important holiday for Muslims, associated with the pilgrimage to Mecca. On that day in mosques offerings are being made from animals – of the ram, the camel or the cow, for commemorating devoting the Abraham who for God was ready to kill his own son. Every Muslim must once in a lifetime fold such a victim. The animal is being killed in the ritual way, and then divided in order to 1 / 3 to give back to the needy, 1 / for 3 to relatives, and remaining 1 / 3 on the shared feast.
