Eid Mubarak - Salam Aidil Adha 1432H / 2011

Eid Mubarak and salam Aidil Adha to all Muslims worldwide. Presently about 3 million Muslims are performing wukuf at Arafat (Arafah) as part of the Hajj rituals. Arafah is derived from the keyword "Arif" or knowing, i.e. the Muslims getting to know each other as well as the Muslim knowing self/herself as servant of Allah. Aidil adha is usually followed by sacrificing animals auch as camel, cow, lamb, etc. The spirit of sacrifice is a means for the servant of Allah to get close to the Creator. Wassalaam.
