Ethiopian Muslims on Friday celebrated Eid al-Adha, the feast of sacrifice, with religious fervor and charitable deeds.

In the capital Addis Ababa, tens of thousands flocked to the city’s lone stadium downtown for Eid prayers.

In his address to the gathering, Addis Ababa Islamic Affairs Supreme Council President Sheikh Muhammad Sharif Hassan cautioned Muslims to stand vigilant against extremism.

According to the Turkish Ambassador to Ethiopia and the African Union Fatih Ulusoy, Turkish Red Crescent donated 28,000 sheep for the needy people.

Other Turkish based organizations such as Diyanet foundation -- a humanitarian agency with presence in all seven continents -- also made available sheep for the people, who could not afford them.
