Over a billion Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha with joy

Friday marks Eid al-Adha, or Qurban Bayram as it is known in Turkey, a Muslim holiday when animals are ritually sacrificed and their meat is delivered to the poor.

The festival starts with prayers at dawn when over a billion Muslims fill mosques across the globe.

Here are the top shots from all over the world during this festive time of the year.
