Eid ul-Adha is the second great Islamic festival, which commemorates the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son. I would like to wish Muslim visitors to this site “Eid Mubarak!”
Transcript of a Southern California radio advertising Campaign run to help better understanding of Islam:
On January 20, Muslims in America and around the world concluded the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, “the Hajj”, with Islam’s most important holiday called Eid ul-Adha or “festival of the sacrifice.”
The central figure in this religious celebration is Prophet Abraham. Muslims believe that Abraham built the first House of Worship to God, known as the Kaaba. The Hajj commemorates Abraham’s prayers at the Kaaba. The Qur’an, Islam’s holy book, states: “Who can be better in faith than one who submits his whole self to God, does good and follows the way of Abraham, the true in faith?”
This fact offers an excellent opportunity for all of Abraham’s children – Muslims, Christians and Jews – to recognize and cherish their shared religious heritage and to promote a harmonious future as people of faith.
