Specifically, the Ministry will be making available Peace and Friendship Stadium (SEF) in Neo Faliro and the Olympic Stadium (OAKA) in Maroussi.

Meanwhile Muslims in other parts of Greece are encouraged to contact local authorities to find out about prayer areas. Eid al-Adha commemorates Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismail on God's command.
