eid_mubarakI would like to take the pleasure of wishing all our beloved readers a Happy and blessed Eid Mubarak! May peace, love, joy and serenity encompass you all on this beautiful occasion of EID.

Eid-ul-Azha is being celebrated in Saudi Arabia, Gulf States, Europe, United States of America and Far East countries today. This is the second biggest occasion for Muslims after Eid-ul Fitr. Muslims performing hajj are supposed to stop all their worldly activities. As per news, about 3 million Muslims are performing Hajj this year. Hajj is the most magnificent display of Muslim brotherhood which is performed once in a year. Muslims all over the world, irrespective of their castes, creeds, nationalities or social status, gather at the Holy place of Makah to perform pilgrimage.

Why Muslims Sacrifice Animals?

This act of Muslims is justified in the memory of their prophet. When Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) (known as Abraham) was willing to slaughter his son (Hazrat Ismail A.S) according to Allah’s order but the Most Merciful was pleased with his willingness only and at the very moment his son was replaced with a sheep (or its kind) by His order. That’s why this is known as “Feast of Sacrifice’. To revive this spirit, Muslims slaughter some specific animals on the day of Hajj and then distribute their meat in accordance with the Islamic teachings. This is to remind Muslims that they should obey the orders of their Lord, even if they have to sacrifice the most beloved being for them. Saying all this wraps up today’s post. May you grasp the true essence of this Eid.

Sincere Wishes

Lastly, we would like to wish all over beloved readers a splendid Eid Mubarak. May this beautiful occasion bring your closer to each other and may bless your with happiness and joy. Eid Mubarak! :D
