Muslims around the world are celebrating the annual festival of Eid-ul-Azha today and in most parts of the world tomorrow.

Moved by this, God intervened and ordered angel Jibra'il to place a goat for sacrifice, instead of Ibrahim's son. It will be celebrated on August 22 this year.

In his message for the major Muslim feast, Duterte said the sacred feast must serve as a "reminder of the fulfillment that is found in sacrifice".

"I would like to wish all my Muslim friends a very happy and peaceful #EidAlAdha!" To greet a Muslim on this day, simply say "Eid Mubarak".

Traditionally sheep are slaughtered during the three-day festival, a tribute to the Prophet Ibrahim's sacrifice of a lamb after God spared Ismail, his son. The Prophet then spots a goat in the bushes nearby which he sacrifices. Prophet Ibrahim passed. Centuries later, Muslims have carried the tradition of sacrificing animals in the name of God. While Eid al Fitr is celebrated on the first day in the month of Shawwal, and literally means "Feast of the Breaking Fast"; Eid al Adha is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, and means "Feast of the Sacrifice". Delicious delicacies are prepared to commemorate this day.
