In Some part of the world today is 10th of Zil hajj (12th Month in Islamic Calender) and in some parts it will be tomorrow. And the 10th Zil haj is the Eid day for the Muslims,where they Sacrifice Goat/sheep/Camel/bull .The Best thing about sacrificing an Animal is not just filling your fridges with meat,but its sharing love with friends and family.Sacrificing animal and then dividing it in 3 portions,one for your own self,and one for family/friends and the other portion for poor and needy people.We all eat meet all around the year but giving it to the poor is the main purpose of the Eid.
Eid-ul-Azha is not just about sacrificing an Animal and then doing BBQ,wearing New cloths .It is more than that.Prophet Ibrahim (Pbuh) used to sacrifice animals every year but there was something else in the meaning of “Sacrifice” that made him determined to sacrifice the most beloved thing in seeking the pleasure of Allah.
Sacrifice was the test that Prophet Ibrahim (Pbuh) went through and he passed it. Every year we celebrate Eid but Have we ever thought about sacrificing ? what are we sacrificing this year on Eid other than the animal? Lets just sacrifice one bad habit this Eid. Sacrifice bad tongue this Eid for the pleasure of Creator,Sacrifice making lies,backbiting,Smoking,Adultery and So on. Lets Just Start it tomorrow by Sacrificing our sleep and getting up for Fajr ,how Wonderful it will be that starting a Day of Sacrifice with the Sacrifice .
Those who did Haj this year May Allah accept it and those who couldn’t may Allah give them opportunity to do next year or once in a life.If you are not celebrating Eid today then enjoy the companies of your Bakra(goat) and if he is a suborn ,wait for it to be sacrificed and then enjoy its Booti(meet) .Remember ill ones,Sick ones,Poors, And all the Humanity in your Eid Namaz Supplications.
Eid Mubarak to all the Muslim world .
