HAPPY EID : Thoughts on Eid-al-Adha / Eid-ul-Zuha / Bakr-Eid

EID – AL – ADHA / BAKR-EID

Thoughts on Eid-al-Adha / Eid-ul-Zuha / Bakr-Eid

Give this day by any name thee may prefer to call

Eid-Al-Adha

Or Eid-Ul-Adha

Eid-Al-Adha
Or Eid-Ul-Adha
Eid-Ul-Zuha
Or Bakr-Eid simply for us all
Calling this auspicious day
With any name
Makes hardly any difference
Factually it is a festival of sacrifice
The festival of giving
Anything considered most precious
Which one has for giving
Thereby solidifying our faith in Almighty God.
The custom that started
When most venerable Abraham
Offered his only son named Ismail
At the command of Allah
Without even the slightest demur of any sort
A reality check or test
Which God wanted
From devout Abraham
And also his son Ismail
Lo and behold!
After actually offering
Supreme sacrifice
Surprise of surprises
Found a slaughtered lamb!
Meaning the most Bbenevolent God
Tested the love and willpower of Abraham
For Him – the benevolent One
While Abraham was obeying
The commandments of God
Satan made attempts to prevent Abraham
From scarifying his only son
But he did not care to listen to satan
The diverter of our attention from Him and His Commandments
Instead obeyed the commands of Allah
And left for us all
A message so enduring
God loves those who obey Him
And are ready to sacrifice anything
On His bidding
May this day brings a feeling of self-sacrifice
So that needs of all are met
By distributing love amongst all
Let’s all pray and sacrifice our ego
Which divides humanity from each other
FOR THE OVERALL WELLBEING OF HUMANKIND AROUND THE WORLD.

HAPPY EID-AL-ADHA

Thoughts on Eid-al-Adha / Eid-ul-Zuha / Bakr-Eid – A Holiest Muslim Festival

There are auspicious days occasioned due to some renowned events connected either with religions occasions or any other events of importance or connected with events of international or national importance. Eid-al-Adha or Bakr-Eid is connected with event of religious prominence and has gives us message of giving without any expectations, a message which could change our destinies and lifestyle. A positive oriented existence with complete faith on Allah.

Eid means festival and Eid-al-Adha means Festival of sacrifice or it is termed as Bakr-Eid meaning celebration with the sacrifice of a goat. This festival is celebrated with great solemnity and reverence across the world as a tribute to Prophet Ibrahim’s rock-solid belief in God. He willingly agreed to sacrifice his beloved son Abraham as ordained by God.

Here, Abraham’s love and reverence are of prime importance. Legend has it that Abraham agreed without even the slightest doubt to sacrifice his only promised son named Ismail on the express command of God. God wanted to test the love of Abraham for the general masses. Subsequently, before it could be done, Allah intervened and instead provided Abraham a lamb for the sacrifice that is why this day of sacrifice is also termed as Bakr’Eid. At that time the age of Abraham was 99 years and his son only 13 years.

This was also a test of Ismail’s maturity and faith in Allah. He himself offered to be sacrificed. When his father mentioned his (son’s) impending sacrifice, without any reservation the son offered himself. All this is evidence that it was not merely father Abraham but also Ismail was having faith in Allah commandments. It was really unprecedented. Willingness on the part of both father and son to accept the will of God is dear to both besides being dear to our     God.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.
