Watch: Muslims in Pakistan celebrate Eid al-Adha

Muslims in Pakistan are celebrating the religious festival Eid al-Adha.

The five-day holy festival, otherwise known as the Festival of Sacrifice, began on August 21.

The holiday celebrates the story of the prophet Ibrahim, whose faith was tested when God asked him to sacrifice his only son, Ismail.

Morning prayers are held during the week, while sheep or bulls are sacrificed and given to the poor.

The first day of Eid al-Adha coincides with the final day of the Haj pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
