Yesterday marked the beginning of Eid al-Adha, the Islamic ‘Feast of the Sacrifice’ (which commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishamel as an act of submission to God, according to the scriptures).
Karim Benzema, a practicing Muslim, has uploaded a video to Instagram to ring the festival in with his fellow Muslims.
The Real Madrid striker exclaimed ‘Eid Mubarak’ to his Muslim followers, which is the traditional greeting on prayer day.
Aïd Moubarak à tous !!! Eid Mubarak !!!
