Islam, Cairo: 21 reviews and 24 photos
Hajj or in another word (pilgrimage)...is the 2nd celebration in the Islamic calendar.
On the 9th day of the Hajj month, most Muslims fast this day for it`s believed that fasting this day will wash away all sins made through the past year,in Cairo many night spots closes for the spirit of this day.......and even the ones which are open refrain from serving Alcohol for the locals and other muslims.
Next day is called Eid,which most Muslims slaughter either sheeps,goats or cows to feed the poor.......
In Egypt and some other Arabic countries call this Eid (The Big Eid) or in Arabic EL Eid El Kebeer.
Here is a picture of the sheeps the night before the Eid,,waiting and not knowing what the future hides for them.
