From the Pioneer Press: 
A small child takes in the scene as the men prostrate themselves in prayer Monday morning at the Masjid An Nur mosque in Minneapolis. The observance marked the end of the world's largest pilgrimage, the hajj to Mecca, in which some 3 million Muslims participated this year. The day also honored the beginning of the holiday that follows: Eid al-Adha, the celebration of Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son in a display of faith, before God provided a sheep instead, according to a story held sacred by Muslims, Christians and Jews.
