With Eid al-Adha approaching, Saudi sheep markets are swarming with shoppers shelling out to sellers for sheep to slaughter ceremonially. They should surely seek out the cheap sheep, but, sadly, cheap sheep are scarce. Sheep prices have soared. It's a shame some sellers are selling sheep at steep prices. Saudi sellers of sheep should surely see that, since the ceremonial slaughter of sheep is sacred, prices should stay cheap.
Should the Saudi authorities step in to stop soaring prices and keep sheep cheap?
And is it right for the Shi'ite to pay more money than the Sunni? Or should the Sunni shun the Shi'ite seller?
