Islam, Istanbul: 11 reviews and 18 photos
We arrived just in time for Muslim Festival .
The custom is that every family has to buy ( unless if you are very poor , than you don't have to ) and "sacrifice " a sheep , 1/3 of the meat they leave at home, 1/3 they give to the friends , and 1/3 goes to the poor . If you are poor you can keep all sheep , if you are rich you can give everything to the poor .
On pic people buying sheeps ...Pic was taken through the bus window ...that is why is so bad :))
