Idul Adha & The Sacrificial Ram!

As’salammualaikum….

Id Al-Adha (Arabic: ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) or “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid” is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma’il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead. The meat is divided into three parts to be distributed to others. The family retains one third of the share, another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbours, and the other third is given to the poor & needy.

The significance of Abraham’s preparedness to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience & faith to God, leads to exemplify the universal need to sacrifice for a cause. Any Just Cause. All over the World.

I salute everyone, who had sacrificed one way or another, small or big, active or passive, blood, sweat or tears in championing what you believe in. Much more sacrifice & efforts in the right direction will make a better Malaysia, socially, economically and judiciously.

Wishing everyone Selamat Hari Raya Idul Adha, Maaf Zahir Batin.
Special warm regards to all KeAdilan & Pakatan Rakyat Youth members & Youths of Malaysia.

  1. Dear Shamsul,
    The article is a timely reminder to all of us. Obedience to God’s words is important. We should not take God’s name in vain. Thank you.
