A Comprehensive Approach About Eid- al-Adha
This pleasant decision must end up all disputes on this issue and bring the Muslim community to unite, which we have witnessed in Ramadan and Eid ul-Fitr.
Some years ago, the North American Islamic Society (ISNA) published a wide-ranging newspaper on the identification of the Feast of Sacrifice.
He also advised that the Eid al-Adha was strongly recommended to follow the announcement of the Hajj dates in Saudi Arabia and also all over the world.
According to the Saudi calendar, the celebrations of the Eid al-Adha should be made irrespective of local dates.
What Is The Real Ideology Of Muslim Ummah About Eid Al-Adha
There is a great importance to the ideology of the Muslim Ummah, and no one can differ from it. But it does not state that all the Muslim community should follow the imam in Saudi Arabia at one and the same time, as the time all over the world differs from country to county.
By fulfilling the Fajr prayers according to Saudi Arabian’s timing, it is clear that the people of North America have not yet performed their Isha prayers of the last day.
Likewise, the Muslims living in Los Angeles when doing their Fajr prayers, at the same time in Pakistan and India Muslims are still offering their Isha and Mughrib salats.
For this reason, it is clear that the presentation of one’s actions at different times does not affect the Muslim Unity ideology.
What Does The Muslim Unity Mean?
And according to the teaching of Islam designing new ideas and terminologies is prohibited, which may be harmful to the unity of Muslim ummah and will lead to arising conflict and differences in them.
While as the pilgrimage (Hajj) is undoubtedly tied to a certain place, but the Eid al-Adha is not limited for a fixed plate. It is celebrated everywhere in the world and cannot be associated with the Saudi calendar.
The Eid al-Adha is an Islamic celebration to commemorate the desire of Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (also called as Abraham) to fulfill the order of Allah (the Lord), which is a big scarifies to sacrifice Hazrat Ismail his son. The fundamental ideology of Eid al-Adha based on the above-mentioned phenomenon.
Getting Qurbani Animal From Cattle Market
In the traditional Islamic countries of the Muslims, families go to the cattle market and buy a cattle, for example, a sheep, goat, camel or cow especially they go for the male animal which should not any fault in its body for the purpose of scarifies.
In the western countries, a group of people can buy a big animal from the slaughterhouse and divide among themselves, or just buy plenty of meat for a common feast on Eid al-Adha.
People also pay the poor peoples around their surrounding and also distribute meet among them.
In these religious days of Eid al-Adha, mostly Muslims also goes to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj.
Mostly Muslims makes planning for going to these religious place and sometimes many peoples even save money out of their living for many years, surely Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam.
Public Life At Eid Al-Adha
On Eid al-Adha, there are public holidays in almost all Islamic countries.
But, some organizations in the Muslim world remain closed and some offer lower level service, and mosques are heavily populated on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
Background Of Eid Al-Adha
Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim Obeyed his head as per order of Allah and told Prophet Hazrat Ismail about the Allah order and bother made a great sacrifices, while Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim was slaughtering his son, Prophet Hazrat Ismail the angel replaced Prophet Hazrat Ismail with a goat, Surely Allah accepted their sacrifices and left their Sunnat (means, what they sacrificed) for the whole world to come until by the day of judgement.
The Islamic calendar is derived from the observations of the Moon, and the length of the month may vary from year to year. For this reason, the estimated dates of the Eid al-Adha can be corrected at the beginning of the Sacrifice Hijri month. About 10 days before the beginning of this festival.
Eid al Adha 2018 will be celebrated on Tuesday, August 21, 2018. This date is not fixed or we can say that it is the tentative date, as if the actual date is related to the engagement of Dhul Hajjah’s observance of the moon.
The first 10 days before Id Eid al Adha are of utmost importance for Muslims and motivating and encouraging Muslims for Eid festival.
All Muslim should do the max. Prayer (worship to Allah) during these days especially and then consider ‘Eid al Adha’ as an expression of reward.
