Mudayrib, Oman, Arabian Peninsula, Middle East - Omani girls wear their new clothes and jewelry to celebrate the Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), the annual feast through which Muslims commemorate God's mercy in allowing Abraham to sacrifice a ram instead of his son, to prove his faith.  One girl holds banknotes in her hand, which she has been given as a gift by a family member.
