Eid Al-Adha 2

The philosophy of Eid al-Adha?

Prophet Abraham (pbuh), made a sacrifice on Eid al-Adha. This sacrifice is a symbol for the faithful people who want to tread the path of truth, transcendence and perfection. This is impossible without a sacrifice. In fact, all the tests that we go through involves a sacrifice. Sometimes this involves sacrificing your life, wealth, your dear ones or even forgiving an unfair criticism. Being tested means going through hardships. This is what a test is. God does not put us through divine tests in order to get to know us. Divine tests are in fact a step towards one's destination.
