Eid Mubarak! On Occasion of Eid ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice)

Eid Mubarak

 

On occasion of Eid al-Adha, I would like to wish all readers Eid Mubarak! Certainly the occasion which commemorates the sacrifice of Hazrat Ibraheem (P) and his son Ismaiel (P) is a more benign and noble. May Allah give victory to our Deen and wipe out that Trinitarian religion in the foreseeable future, insha’allah.

What is Eid al-Adha?

At the end of the Hajj (annual pilgrimage to Mecca), Muslims throughout the world celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice).

What does Eid al-Adha commemorate?

During the Hajj, Muslims remember and commemorate the trials and triumphs of the Prophet Hazrat Ibraheem. The Qur’an describes Hazrat Ibraheem as follows:

“Surely Hazrat Ibraheem was an example, obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the polytheists. He was grateful for Our bounties. We chose him and guided him unto a right path. We gave him good in this world, and in the next he will most surely be among the righteous.” (Qur’an 16:120-121)

One of Hazrat Ibraheem’s main trials was to face the command of Allah to kill his only son. Upon hearing this command, he prepared to submit to Allah’s will. When he was all prepared to do it, Allah revealed to him that his “sacrifice” had already been fulfilled. He had shown that his love for his Lord superseded all others, that he would lay down his own life or the lives of those dear to him in order to submit to God.

What else do Muslims do to celebrate the holiday?

On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter.
