Muslims around the world celebrated Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice, Tuesday, including hundreds who prayed together at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo in Perrysburg.

Nadia Ashraf-Moghal, president of the center, estimated about 1,200 people came to the mosque to attend the prayer service and celebrate together.
