Hari raya Aidil Adha…

Today is Hari raya Haji, Eid al-Adha, Aidil Adha, Korban…

Seriously I’ve been enjoying this holiday for 24 years, and I still got not much idea about what this day really is…

So, wikipedia is your friend remember? 😉

Eid al-Adha is the “official term” of the “Festival of Sacrifice”, which falls on the 10th day of 12th month of Islamic calendar.

Aidil Adha is a local term of Eid al-Adha, while Korban means sacrifice.

It is said that the Prophet (nabi) Ibrahim (Abraham) was told to sacrifice his son, Is’mail, as an act of obedience to the God (Allah, Malaysian government argued that you should not use this term if you are not muslim, and “worse”, a Christian wor). He was tempted by devil to not do so, but eventually decided to obey the God. The God intervened, and provided a lamb for sacrifice, instead of Is’mail…

And so during this day, muslims sacrifice their best domestic animals, sheep or cow.

So happen that the pilgrimage to Mecca, Hajj, is performed during this period, and so it is also Hari Raya Haji.

It seems like the cube, the Kaaba, was built back in Ibrahim’s time. Ibrahim’s son Is’mail discovered a well in this exact location, and hence managed to stay alive by selling water to the roaming nomads. The well later nourished the born of a city, called Mecca.

So yeah, Selamat Hari raya Aidil Adha, Happy holiday, and well, remember the spirit of sacrifice~

All of these are partially copied from wikipedia ah, anything wrong don’t whack me OK? I never even finish a book on Buddhism (it’s because I’m lazy 😛 ), so don’t expect me to know anything from Quran and Holy Bible… 😛
