Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha as pilgrims conduct hajj ritesTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Pilgrims walked to a complex in Mina on Tuesday to throw pebbles at three columns.

Muslims believe the devil tried to talk the Prophet Ibrahim out of submitting to God's will there.

Muslims believe Ibrahim's faith was tested when God commanded him to sacrifice his only son Ismail. God stayed his hand, sparing his son.

The final days of hajj coincide with the Eid al-Adha holiday, or "Feast of Sacrifice," to commemorate Ibrahim's test of faith. Muslims slaughter livestock and distribute the meat to the poor.
