In his address at the gathering, he adviced all Muslims, notably Muslim girls to take the study of science-based courses seriously, in order to benefit from the programme.

Eid-ul-Adha is an occasion to remember the sacrifice Prophet Ibrahim made in obedience to the will of Allah when he accepted to sacrifice his son, Ishmael, and was accorded the father of Monotheistic faith.

Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has been King of Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia, and Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques since 23 January 2015.
