Eid ul Adha 2023 Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak! As the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Adha approaches, we extend our warmest greetings to all our readers.

I want to take a moment to share the joy and significance of Eid ul-Adha, one of the most cherished celebrations in the Islamic calendar. It’s a time when Muslims worldwide come together to commemorate the story of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) and his unwavering devotion to God.Eid ul-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, symbolizes the spirit of sacrifice, unity, and gratitude. It’s a time of reflection, where we remember the importance of selflessness and helping those in need. Muslims around the globe gather with family and friends to pray, share meals, exchange gifts, and extend acts of kindness to the less fortunate.


In the spirit of unity and inclusiveness, I would like to share a few quotes from non-religious sources that emphasize values that resonate with the essence of Eid ul-Adha:

1. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

This quote by Mahatma Gandhi beautifully captures the essence of selflessness and the joy that comes from helping others. During Eid ul-Adha, Muslims engage in acts of charity and share their blessings with those in need, embodying the spirit of giving.

2. “The willingness to sacrifice is the prelude to freedom.” – Richard Nixon

Richard Nixon’s words remind us that sacrifice is not just about letting go, but it can also lead to greater freedom and fulfillment. Eid ul-Adha teaches us the value of sacrificing our ego, desires, and material possessions for the sake of others, fostering a sense of liberation and spiritual growth.

On this auspicious occasion, let us come together, celebrate our shared humanity, and embrace the values of compassion, kindness, and sacrifice. May this Eid bring joy, peace, and harmony to all, regardless of our differences. Eid Mubarak to you and your loved ones!
