Eid al-Adha: Feast of self-sacrifice to Allah

By: Mostafa Ozer

On the 10th day of Zul-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar, Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, or the Festival of Sacrifice, that immediately follows the Day of Arafat.

This festival is celebrated throughout the Muslim world slaughtering goats, sheep, cows and camels as a commemoration of Prophet Abraham (p)'s willingness to sacrifice everything for Allah. The feast reminds us the revival of Sunnah of Prophet Abraham (p).

Eid al-Adha is the memorial of spirit of Islam, sacrifice, and secondment of Allah’s oneness and greatness that is observed every year to pray for the welfare and well being of the whole humanity and prove the unity of the Muslim Ummah. It is the feast of commitment, obedience and self-sacrifice to Allah.

Muslims wear their nicest clothing, offer Salatul-Eid (Eid Prayer) after which everyone socializes. They visit each other's homes and partake in festive meals with special dishes, beverages, and desserts. Children receive gifts and sweets on this happy occasion.

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
