KABALE, UGANDA: A total of 20 goats, 30 sheep and 6 cows have today been slaughtered at Kirigime main mosque in Kabale municipality in commemoration of Eid al-Adha, the end of the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
The Kabale District Kadhi, Sheikh Kabu Lule told our reporter today morning shortly after prayers that healthy animals slaughtered for this year’s commemoration of Eid al-Adha are many compared to last year’s animals slaughtered.
He said that only 40 goats and 6 cows were slaughtered last year. He attributed the increased numbers of healthy animals slaughtered this year to effective mobilization through Kabale District Muslim Council and sensitization of the Muslim fraternity on the importance of slaughtering.
Sheikh Kabu Lule said that meat will be shared in the nearby mosques with all Muslims that have not been able to get what to slaughter in their homes including neighbours and friends. He asked Muslims to avoid begging for meat.
Presiding over the morning prayers at the same mosque, Sheikh Kabu Lule expressed a need for Muslims across the globe to embrace hard work, Education for their children and unity in order to ensure peaceful co-existence and development.
This festival marks the prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his only son Ismail for Allah, but his son was then replaced with a lamb.
