As India celebrates Eid-ul-Adha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday extended his greetings, stressing that the festival “inspires to work towards furthering the spirit of collective well-being” as well as towards the “prosperity for the good of humankind”. “Eid Mubarak! Greetings on Eid-ul-Adha. May this festival inspire us to work towards furthering the spirit of collective well-being and prosperity for the good of humankind,” PM Modi tweeted.

President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday also greeted citizens on the eve of Eid-ul-Adha. Highlighting the festival “inspires to follow the path of self-sacrifice shown by Hazrat Ibrahim,” the president had asked everyone to “rededicate themselves to the service of mankind and work for the prosperity and development of the nation.”

"This festival inspires us to follow the path of self-sacrifice shown by Hazrat Ibrahim. On this occasion, let us resolve to rededicate ourselves to the service of mankind and work for the prosperity and development of the nation. On the occasion of Eid-uz-Zuha, I extend my greetings to all the fellow citizens, especially our Muslim brothers and sisters," he said.

Defence minister Rajnath Singh, who turns 71 today, wished “happiness and prosperity all across”. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “Greetings on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. Hope this day brings happiness and prosperity all across. May everybody be healthy and live in harmony. Eid Mubarak!”

Meanwhile, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal wished health, happiness and progress to the citizens. “Happy Eid-ul-Azha to all the countrymen. May you all be healthy, happy and may this festival bring a lot of progress in your life,” he wrote on Twitter.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote: “Eid Mubarak! May the auspicious occasion of #EidAlAdha usher in the spirit of togetherness and bring peace, prosperity and happiness for all.”

NCP supremo Sharad Pawar tweeted to mark the festival. “May the love and brotherhood of each other be enhanced on the occasion of Eid, which is a reminder of sacrifice and dedication. Happy Eid to all Muslim brothers and sisters!,” he wrote in Marathi.

Union minister Smriti Irani wrote: “Greetings on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. May this day encourage the spirit of compassion in society.”

Eid ul-Adha - also known as Bakra Eid, Bakrid, Eid al-Adha, Eid Qurban, or Qurban Bayaram - is celebrated by Muslims all across the world to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s dedication to Allah. It is celebrated in the month of Zul Hijjah/Dhu al-Hijjah - which is the twelfth month of the Islamic or lunar calendar. This is the second major Islamic festival celebrated by Muslims after Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of 30 days of fasting in the month of Ramadan.

Tens Of Thousands Gather In Manchester Park To Celebrate Eid Al-Adha

By Ramazani Mwamba

9 JUL 2022

Around 25,000 people gathered at a sun-soaked Manchester park today to celebrate Eid Al-Adha. Crowds of Muslim Mancs descended on Platt Fields in Fallowfield this morning for Eid prayer.

Locals celebrated the first major festival on the Islamic calendar, Eid al-Fitr, back in April which marked the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Eid al-Adha is also known as Festival of the Sacrifice or the Greater Eid and is held to honour the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismail as an act of obedience to Allah's command.

For many today’s Eid at the Park was a regular occurrence, with many of them coming earlier in the year. However, for Usman and Ramla this was their first time taking part in Eid at the park.

Her husband, Usman added: “We got married two years ago and with the pandemic this was the first time she’s been here. It’s nice, it’s beautiful to see so many people out here, this is what today is about, it’s about forgiveness, family and charity."

Another worshipper said: “On days like this I love being a Muslim, everybody is hear, the poor and rich standing next to each for one thing, Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God)."

The park was a kaleidoscope of colours as thousands put on their best garments and made their way for prayer which started just after 10am. You could hear a pin drop while the prayer was conducted at the park with thousands in full focus and unison in the prayer lead by Imam Sheikh Mohamed Ali Mowleed.

As is custom, hearty hugs and hand shakes were exchanged once the prayer finished. The Imam could be heard over the sound system emphasising the importance of charity during the cost of living crisis and for people to extend their generosity to not only fellow Muslims, but also non-Muslims in their wider community.

Muhammed Abu Bakar, who was joined by his three sons, said: “This is one of our biggest celebrations and I always look forward to it. Today sends a message of unity. People coming together in peace and harmony, it’s a day of forgiveness – it’s amazing.”

Bidens Wish Muslims Celebrating Eid Al-Adha ‘A Joyous Holiday’

 

US President Joe Biden (AFP)

------

By Caroline Vakil

07/09/22

President Biden said on Saturday that he and first lady Jill Biden wished “a joyous holiday” to Muslims in the United States and around the world who are observing the holiday of Eid al-Adha.

“Jill and I send our warmest greetings to Muslims across the United States and around the world celebrating Eid al-Adha. The Eid traditions and Hajj rituals that commemorate the devotion of Abraham and his son to God are an opportunity for Muslims to renew their faith, and a reminder of the common roots of the world’s great Abrahamic religions,” Biden said in a statement.

“And the act of sharing the sacrifice with those less fortunate in service of God mirrors our common commitment to work together to meet the challenges of our world today.”

Biden also touted the progress that the U.S. and the rest of the world has made in battling the COVID-19 pandemic, noting that Muslims would be able to make the hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca, for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

“It’s a symbol of the progress we have made in fighting this pandemic and of all work we must still do to strengthen our recovery,” the president said.

Eid al-Adha, known as the “Feast of Sacrifice,” honors a story told in the Quran of how Ibrahim demonstrates his obedience to God by his willingness to kill his son, Ismail. In the story, God ultimately stops Ibrahim from killing his son by offering him a ram to use instead.

The holiday features slaughtering livestock, meat from which is then shared amongst the poor, friends and family. It also features the hajj trek to the holy city of Mecca, which takes place each year and which Muslims are supposed to complete at least one time.

Afghan Leaders Call for National Dialogue to Resolve The Existing Challenges In The Country

 

Former President Hamid Karzai

----

By TOLO news

09-07-2022

Afghan leaders including former President Hamid Karzai and former chairman of the High Council for National Reconciliation, Abdullah Abdullah, stressed the need for national dialogue to resolve the existing challenges in the country.

Former president Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, expressing concern over the current situation of the country, said that the Islamic world should make the Islamic Emirate aware of their actions.

"I ask the Islamic world to consider the Taliban's move. The Islamic world is on a very positive route, and it is obviously vital for them to make the Taliban know that the principles of Islam and the welfare of Muslims throughout the world are going in which direction," he stated.

Ghani, in a message on the occasion of Eid, said he considers girls' education a necessity and he emphasized that world examples show that one girl's education can change five generations.

“World examples show that the education of a girl can change five generations, and the education of a boy can change only one generation. In a family where a man and a woman are educated, that is the best Muslim family,” he said.

Ghani added: "The goal should be the well-being and peace of all the people, not a system of a few specific figures. A system can only continue with the will of the Afghan nation, otherwise it will face threats."

"History has now proven that Ghani would not have fled if he had considered the people. A way of peace could have been found, though. I hope you would consider the welfare of the people and avoid taking nine million dollars out of Afghanistan,” said Tariq Farhadi, political analyst.

"In the messages of political leaders, two important and fundamental issues stand out, the will of the people and their basic wishes, demands and needs. Therefore, the government cannot ignore the will of the people,” said Sayed Javad Sajadi, university lecturer.

Meanwhile, former president Hamid Karzai, on the occasion of Eid, in a message on Twitter asked the Islamic Emirate to soon reopen girls' schools above the sixth grade.

Karzai in his Eid message emphasized that the national discourse should start as soon as possible and is the only way to resolve the country's problems.

"It is crucial and important to ensure social justice, collaboration, the right to education, and the basic rights of the people in order to resolve the current problems. I emphasize the need for respect of cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity ... in order to move towards a bright future and to strengthen national unity. I hope the officials pay attention to these principles,” Abdullah posted on Facebook.

Architectural History Exposes The False Claims About Goa’s Mosques And Temples

Amita Kanekar

10-07-2022

In Goa, one is used to history lessons from the most unlikely of sources but that honour is now being extended to architecture as well. The latest wisdom is that the old Safa Masjid in Central Goa’s Ponda cannot have originally been a mosque. The reason offered by self-proclaimed experts is that talis, or water tanks, of the sort visible at Safa Masjid were built only at Hindu temples.

Mosques originated in Arab lands and Arab lands “had no water”, so there is no question of mosques having water tanks, they contend. Only Hindu temples had tanks, which means that that the Safa Masjid was originally a Hindu temple.

Why many Varanasi residents are unimpressed by the furore around the Gyanvapi mosque

10-07-2022

Vijay Tiwari is still distressed about it. In March 2020, the Varanasi administration demolished the small shop where he sold rudraksh strings and idols, as well as the shrine behind it. The shivling and Narayan idol it had housed were displaced.

The shrine and the shop, which Tiwari’s family had rented for three generations, were knocked down to make way for the ambitious Kashi Vishwanath Corridor – the wide avenue that cuts through the heart of old Varanasi, connecting the Kashi Vishwanath temple to the ghats on the Ganges.

What it’s like to grow up gay, Muslim and afraid

TUFAYEL AHMED

10 Jul 2022

I recently read an early review of my debut novel, This Way Out, on Amazon that really cemented why I wrote this book. The person, a gay – presumably white – man from Canada felt that it was “just another coming-out whine”, that my story wasn’t needed, that it had been done to death. “The new normal is gay,” they wrote.

It’s exactly this kind of misguided thinking that compelled me to write my protagonist Amar’s story. While it’s true that there may be greater acceptance and tolerance of LGBTQ+ people across the world than ever before, that doesn’t mean that we are all equal. Often it’s the people in the majority of minoritised groups – in this case, white gay men – who think that, because they feel equal, the same must be true for the rest of us. That just isn’t the case. Especially for queer people whose identities intersect more than one minority group.

Soaring prices dampen joy of Muslim Eid al-Adha festival

JULY 09, 2022

CAIRO — As hundreds of thousands of Muslim pilgrims continued the annual Hajj pilgrimage rites in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, fellow Muslims in most parts of the world began celebrating the Eid al-Adha festival overshadowed by soaring food prices. During Eid al-Adha, Islam's major feast, Muslims honor the willingness of the prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son to prove his faith to God. Sheep are commonly chosen as the sacrificial animal for the festival's ritual slaughter. But other livestock, like cows and goats, may also be slaughtered for sacrifice. Part of the sacrificial meat is given to the poor. In the lead-up to the four-day festival this year, complaints surfaced in several Arab countries about increases in livestock prices. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was blamed for causing the hike in prices. Saudi Arabia, Islam’s birthplace and the world’s top oil exporter, is one such country. Earlier this week, Saudi King Salman ordered 20 billion riyals ($5.3 billion) in financial support to tackle repercussions of global price increases, media in the Gulf monarchy reported. A portion of the aid is earmarked for helping Saudis living on limited incomes and supporting cattle breeders. Get unlimited digital access Subscribe now for just $2 for 2 months. CLAIM OFFER The rest will be pumped into augmenting the kingdom’s stocks of essential goods. In Lebanon, roiled by economic woes, many people complain about not having money for a sacrificial animal. A sheep there costs around $250. In mostly Muslim Egypt, livestock prices have increased by up to 30%, according to the privately owned newspaper al-Youm al-Saba.

Canada will return a repaired Russian turbine to Germany that it needs for the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, despite objections from Ukraine, as the sanctions regime came up against the energy crisis sparked by the war.

Canada’s minister of natural resources, Jonathan Wilkinson, said in a statement on Saturday the government was issuing a “time-limited and revocable permit” to exempt the return of turbines from its Russian sanctions, to support “Europe’s ability to access reliable and affordable energy as they continue to transition away from Russian oil and gas”.

KUCHING, July 10 — Democratic Action Party (DAP) veteran parliamentarian leader Lim Kit Siang has concurred with de-facto law minister Datuk Seri Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar that the recent proposal to have a new Malaysia Agreement is ‘nonsense’.

The Iskandar Puteri MP agreed that the proposal by Barisan Nasional deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan is ‘nonsense’ as the existing Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) is a commitment that had been agreed upon by all parties for the formation of Malaysia.

Muslims in W Papua's Sorong urged to keep embracing charitable spirit

10-07-2022

Sorong, W Papua (ANTARA) - "Khatib" (cleric) of Idul Adha prayer, Ustadz Muhammad Muhyidin, has appealed to Muslims in Sorong City, West Papua Province, to keep embracing a charitable spirit for those in need.

In his sermon, he told several thousand Muslims gathering in the front yard of Sorong mayor's office building on Sunday to pray for the Idul Adha that sharing and caring are a substantial part of the Day of Sacrifice.

Muhyidin argued that the true meaning of the Islamic festivity of Idul Adha is "sacrifice" which is not merely related to Qurban (sacrificial) animals but also to mental and physical sacrifices.

PML-N Foregoes Ministers To Ensure Hold Over Lahore ‘Citadel’

Zulqernain Tahir

July 10, 2022

LAHORE: The departure of a minister each from the federal and Punjab cabinets, and the official reasons cited for it, makes it clear that the PML-N cannot afford any embarrassment in the upcoming by-polls in Punjab and wants to retain its hold over its citadel of Lahore, for which it has deployed its trusted lieutenants.

Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Sardar Ayaz Sadiq and Punjab Minister Salman Rafique resigned on Saturday citing ‘personal reasons’. Although Mr Sadiq’s resignation as the economic affairs minister may not be significant in the larger scheme of things, it does raise a question that the PML-N could sacrifice the head of such a vital ministry at a time when the economy is on a downward spiral, but not lose Lahore at any cost, especially when former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan is making whirlwind tours to every constituency to give a tough time to the ruling alliance in Punjab.
