The word "Sallah" is an Arabic word, which has many meanings but specifically it means to pray. There are five sallah which a Muslim must complete each day. They are
Fajr: This means dawn prayer before sunset.
Duhr: Mid day prayer at noon.
Asr: Late afternoon prayer.
Maghrib: After the sunset prayer.
All of this prayers are a spiritual practice and a way to connect to Allah.
The 10th day of Islamic month of Dhual _ Hijjah ID AL_ADHA is an occasion of much joy and ceremony for Muslims, even the ones in Nigeria, where it is also known as "Durbar Festival ".
This is the culmination of the Muslim PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA and a day of communal prayer. People throng together in their best regalia. There is a lot of dinning and wining too.
Sallah is most likely celebrated the way Christians celebrate the Christmas holiday.
