Members of all Toledo mosques combined for prayers in observance of Eid-ul-Adha, the festival at the end of the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca. With the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo undergoing repairs after a Sept. 30 arson, the service and celebration took place at Gold Medal Indoor Sports Complex in Rossford. (LEFT) Islamic tradition is to leave shoes outside the prayer area; here, women gathered on Field 1 and men on field 2, with shoes in the corridor between.
