Eid al-Adha: A festival of faith, community, and compassion

The day of Eid al-Adha is a significant religious observance in Islam. It reminds us of the sacrifices and hardships faced by the Prophet Ibrahim (may peace be upon him) and his son, the Prophet Ismail (may peace be upon him).

The day serves as a historical recollection and a profound spiritual exercise that revitalises believers’ dedication to leading a virtuous life. This annual observance underscores the enduring power of faith and emphasises that the quintessence of sacrifice is found in submission to a higher, transcendent purpose.

This Eid encourages believers to surrender their worldly desires and ambitions to serve a higher purpose, echoing the teachings found in the Quran and Hadith. This concept of surrender nurtures a sense of inner peace and tranquillity. It reassures believers of a divine plan, fostering trust and solace in the guidance and protection offered by a higher power.
