I would like to take a moment to greet everybody Happy Eid-ul-Azha 21th
of December in BANGLADESH.
What is Eid-ul-Azha?
We have two festivals. Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. The “festival of sacrifice”, Eid al-Adha, in Arabic, which is the greater of the two main festivals. It falls on the 10th of Dhul-Hijjah and the following three days. It commemorates the time when Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham) (peace be upon him) was willing to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of total devotion to Allah. In the event, a sheep was sacrificed in Ismail’s stead as a symbol of Ibrahim’s devotion.
It is the reason why all the Muslim family has to have a sheep or a goat offered on this special day.
With the world’s present situation and crises, we need to take time to remember to take a moment to offer our prayers and to remember Allah and His continuous Blessings to all of us.
I believe whether it is the day of the Eid or not, and whether we are Muslims or have a different religion, we should take time to say thank you for each day, for the chance to see the sunrise every morning, a chance to breathe the air around us, a chance to have the energy to do our daily work, a chance to share a tea with a colleague and most of all to have the chance to lift our heads and see all these wondrous things He has made for us to enjoy.
Always take a chance and enjoy your day.
