HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, accompanied by hundreds of worshippers, participated in the sacred Eid al-Adha prayers at the tranquil Lusail praying area.

Esteemed dignitaries, including HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani, Shura Council Speaker HE Hassan bin Abdullah Al Ghanem, along with esteemed sheikhs, ministers, Shura Council members, and ambassadors to Qatar, were present during the prayer.

Under the guidance of Sheikh Dr Thaqeel bin Sayer Al Shammari, a Court of Cassation judge and Supreme Judiciary Council member, the prayer focused on the essence of unity, giving, piety, and loyalty. The sermon highlighted the importance of sacrifice and drawing closer to God.

Sheikh Tamim, in a heartfelt message, extended his warm congratulations to Qatar's citizens and residents on the joyous occasion of Eid al-Adha. In his tweet, he wrote, 'I congratulate all the people of Qatar and residents on the occasion of Eid al-Adha. May Allah make it a joyful Eid for you and our Arab and Islamic nations. Eid Mubarak to all of you.’

This year's Eid al-Adha prayer holds special significance as it coincides with the remarkable 10th anniversary of Sheikh Tamim's ascension to power. Despite facing challenges such as a multi-year blockade and a global pandemic, Qatar emerged stronger under his transformative leadership.

Prayers were held across the country, with the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs preparing 610 mosques and grounds for believers to observe their prayers.

A historic moment unfolded at the Education City Stadium, where thousands gathered for the first-ever Eid al-Adha prayer on its premises.

Additionally, children enjoyed various entertainment activities, including face painting, colorful animal balloons, engaging sports activities, henna painting, and foosball.

Having previously hosted several matches of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the Education City Stadium continues to be a symbol of unity and devotion.
