Mudayrib, Oman, Arabian Peninsula, Middle East - Omani Men Taking Breakfast before  Prayers on the Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), the annual feast through which Muslims commemorate God's mercy in allowing Abraham to sacrifice a ram instead of his son, to prove his faith.  The white dishdasha, multicolored msarr or massar (headdress), and curved silver khanjar (dagger) make up their attire.  A plate of halwa with almonds accompanies the fruit.
