Muslims celebrate sacrifice

Sabaha Memon, 19, left, greets Farzana Memon, right, after the prayers during Eid al-Adha at the Islamic Center in Victoria. Eid al-Adha is a day to honor Abraham's sacrifice of his son, and his son's willingness to be sacrificed, before God intervened and a ram was sacrificed instead. On this day there are prayers, food, one present for each child and a goat sacrifice.
