Late August or early September marks a great occasion in the Islamic world—Muslims celebrate the feast of sacrifice which is ranked next to the Ramadan in terms of importance. A great number of livestock from sheep to goats, cows, and even camels is​ slaughtered. This represents a modern sacrifice similar to the one of Prophet ​Ibrahim who was willing to sacrifice his own son Ismail to God. According to the story Allah instead accepted a lamb and returned Ismail to his father. The meat is consumed at festive dinners and also is vastly distributed to the poor members of Jordanian communities.​​
