The Governor, in his message, said that Eid ul-Adha, reminds all of the absolute faith of Ibrahim Sahab (Abraham) in Allah and his paragon willingness for any sacrifice at the Command of Allah. This festival is celebrated in the spirit of sacrifice and benevolence with great fervour and gaiety in India and the world. The occasion is meant to promote goodwill amongst the people.
The Governor also said the festivity endorses purity of heart, obedience, and generosity towards others. Special prayer meetings and charitable actions like distribution of gifts and food to relatives, neighbours and the poor mark the significance of the Day.
May Eid ul-Adha this year further promote the rich Islamic tradition of peace and amity amongst all in the society, the Governor wished.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended his greetings and best wishes on the holy occasion of Eid ul-Adha also known as Id-ul-Zoha and Bakr-Eid, one of the most important festivals celebrated by the Muslim community across the world.
In a message on the eve of the ‘festival of sacrifice’, Khandu reminded the utter devotion and faith demonstrated by Ibrahim, who was willing to sacrifice his son as an act of respect towards God’s command. As per belief while Ibrahim was ready to make the sacrifice, God stopped the sacrifice and his child was replaced by a lamb thereby saving Ibrahim’s son’s life.
“Everything good in this world stems from our faith on God. May this festival inspire us to repose our faith on God for peace, prosperity and welfare of all human beings,” Khandu said.
“It is believed that during a lifetime, we give up a number of things that are important to us for a bigger purpose and in a similar way the sacrificing the animals is a symbol of willingness to sacrifice to stay true on our path and not be lured by earthly love and affection,” the Chief Minister added.
