The Significance of Eid Ul Azha
The significance of the Eid Ul Adha is broad and deep. On this day, it becomes easier to earn the satisfaction of Allah. Eid Ul Adha is the festival of the great memorable sacrifice of Ibrahim (a), Bibi Hajerah, and Ismail (a). Ibrahim (a) is mentioned in the Qur’an as the father of the Muslim nation (Hajj 78). This family is the greatest standard of sacrifice for world Muslims. Therefore, on the day of Eid Ul Adha, the whole Muslim nation seeks Allah’s satisfaction through fulfilling the Ibrahimi Sunnah. On the occasion of Hajj in the month of Zilhajj in the memory of the sacrifice, hundreds of thousands of Muslims gathered in Mecca-Medina from the whole world in the memory of Ibrahim (a).
They tried with full power of life to be idealistic in the Ibrahimi ideology. Hajj is a unique example of the unity, solidarity, and fraternity of the Muslim Ummah which encourages us to Tauhidi motivation every year. We intensely feel the world Muslim fraternity. Eid festival is a social festival and collective joy festival to celebrate. Sacrifice is an integral part of the Eid Ul Adha festival. The sacrifice is the medium of correctness and purity. Though this is a social norm, it has been introduced for the sake of Allah. He alone is the only creator and people always hope for his grace. Our wealth, family and society are devoted to his purpose and sacrifice is a symbol of that dedication.
Eid is the symbol of the unity of the Muslims. Muslims get two Eid days each year. Eid gives us the opportunity to earn the nearness to Allah. On this day, He sent blessings in sky and earth. The sacrifice teaches us how to sacrifice. We should sacrifice for the sake of Allah by taking lessons from the teaching of sacrifice. And we wish the day of Eid Ul Adha brings you delight and laughing. Do not only celebrate Eid yourself but also help the poor neighbors so that they can be happy on the Eid day. Remember that your neighbors have rights on you. Finally, we wish the almighty Allah forgives our sins on the occasion of Eid Ul Adha.
