Prayerful reflection

Muslims from around Pinellas County pray Sunday at Helen Howarth Park in honor of Eid ul-Adha, which means Festival of Sacrifice. The holiday marks the end of the yearly pilgrimage to Mecca. According to custom, it also honors Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son at God's command. Prayers are only one part of the celebration that includes giving gifts to children, meat to the needy and social gatherings.
