The InfoStride Team and members of The InfoStride sincerely felicitate with all our Muslim members and all Muslims globally on the celebration of 2010 Eid al-Kabir (Eid al-Adha). We employ all Muslims to let the lessons of the Sallah continue to reflect in our daily living.
Happy Sallah!Meaning of the Festival: Brief Note about Eid al-Kabir (Eid al-Adha)
Eid Al-Adha begins on the 10th of Dhu'l-Hijja, the last month of the Islamic calendar, and lasts for fours days. It begins the day after Muslims on the Hajj descend from Mount Arafat.
The festival commemorates God's gift of a ram in place of Isma'il (Ishmael), whom God had commanded Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice. (In Judaism and Christianity, the child in this story is Ishmael's brother Isaac.)
The Devil tried to persuade Ibrahim to disobey God and not to sacrifice his beloved son, but Ibrahim stayed absolutely obedient to God and drove the devil away. Eid al-Adha is a celebration of this supreme example of submission to God, which is the cornerstone of the Islamic faith (islam means "submission").
