The federal government has announced four holidays for Eidul Azha from August 12 to August 15.
The four days from Monday to Thursday have been declared public holidays, according to a notification issued by the interior ministry.
The notification, however, says that Saturday, August 17 will be a working day.
Eidul Azha is celebrated to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim (AS).
In line with the tradition of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), Muslims across the world slaughter animals as a sacrifice for Allah. The meat of sacrificed animals is distributed among relatives and the poor.
