Oman_29, 876_36, Sacrificing a goat, Eid al-Adha, Wahiba Sands, Oman.jpg
Wahiba Sands, Oman, Arabian Peninsula, Middle East - Sacrificing a lamb for Eid al-Adha.  Like all Muslims who can afford to do so, this Omani sacrifices a goat 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.  This Omani bedouin lives in the Wahiba Sands.  His house and his Toyota pick-up are in the background.
