Saudi Arabia and European countries, as well as United Arab Emirates, Indonesia and Malaysia, are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha today amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In Indonesia, people donned face masks and had their temperatures checked as they arrived at mosques to perform prayers in mosques.

The country’s religious ministry had asked mosques to shorten the gatherings this year, while many mosques cancelled the traditional ceremony where livestock is slaughtered and meat distributed to the community.
