Before the winter league kicks off, Sylhet FC would like to send their greetings to everyone who will be celebrating Eid next week. Team captain Kamal Chowdhury said, “Eid is a time of unity, happiness and peace. We wish everyone a very fulfilling time and request prayers – Eid Mubarak!”
Eid-al-Adha honors Ibrahim’s (Abraham’s) willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael when God ordered him to do this. However, just as Ibrahim was about to kill Ishmael, God put a sheep in his place. Some people dispute that the son of sacrifice was Isaac (Isḥāq). Regardless, these events are remembered and celebrated at Eid al-Adha.
Muslims celebrate Ibrahim’s complete obedience to the will of God during Eid-al-Adha. They remind themselves of their own willingness to sacrifice anything to follow God’s commands. It also marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
