Prayers, gaiety mark Eid celebrations in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi started the day with early prayers and thousands, wearing traditional clothing, went to mosques.
Amer Ali, another local, said Eid Al Adha is an important festival, especially in the times we are living.
The festival is best celebrated with feast. Mina animal market was a busy place and people filled there right after the morning prayers.
This was a day when friends also got together. An expat Nadeem Ashraf was joined by his friends from Dubai and Sharjah. And they made a sumptuous mutton biryani. "We are meeting after a long time and cooked together," Ashraf said.
Restaurants across the Capital had a lavish spread to satisfy everyone. For many, especially expat workers, this was of great help.
"All of us were together at the same time in our room. So we ate out as this was the best time to check the eateries," Ahmed Mohammed said.
"Now, all just wish Eid over social media. It's mostly one festive message getting forwarded to all. Person-to-person contact is missing," Iqbal, an expat, said greeting his friend with a warm hug.
