Known as Eid al-adha in most Muslim countries, Kurban Bayrami commemorates Ibrahim’s willingness to submit to God’s will and sacrifice his son; Allah rewards him by instead providing a lamb to slaughter. Turks celebrate by visiting the mosque for a festive morning prayer on the first day, visiting relatives and feasting on meat dishes. It is customary to sacrifice a lamb or a cow and share the meat with relatives, neighbours and the poor. Schools and private establishments close for the entire period of the festival starting from the eve of the festival (called Arefe).
