PLASIEC Chairman, Hon. Plangji Cishak Felicitates with All Muslims on Eid-ul-Adha Celebration

Today, as we join our Muslim brothers and sisters in the joyous celebration of Eid Mubarak, also known as Eid al-Adha, we are reminded of the profound faith and unwavering obedience to God exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim. This day marks a pivotal moment in Islamic tradition, one that underscores the virtues of sacrifice and devotion.

Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his beloved son in obedience to God’s command is a story that transcends religious boundaries. It is a testament to the strength of faith and the spirit of selflessness. Just as God ultimately provided a ram to sacrifice in place of his son, this narrative teaches us about divine mercy and the rewards of true devotion.

As we reflect on this significant event, it is essential for all Muslims, and indeed all of us, to embrace the virtues that Eid-el-Kabir embodies:

  1. Faith: The unwavering belief in God’s wisdom and plans, even when they challenge our understanding and expectations. Faith is a cornerstone that supports us through life’s trials and tribulations.
  2. Sacrifice: The willingness to give up something valuable for a greater good. This act of giving up is not just about material possessions but extends to time, comfort, and personal ambitions for the benefit of others and for the sake of God.
  3. Obedience to God: Following divine guidance and commands, demonstrating our trust in God’s omniscient plan for us. This obedience is a form of humility, recognizing that our understanding is limited compared to the infinite wisdom of the Creator.

In celebrating Eid-el-Kabir, we also reaffirm our commitment to entrenching credibility, justice, transparency in our electoral system. The virtues of faith, sacrifice, and obedience to God are not only personal spiritual goals but are also social imperatives that can strengthen the fabric of our society. When we embody these principles, we contribute to a more harmonious and cohesive nation.

As we mark this holy day, I extend my heartfelt prayers for prosperity and progress to all. May this celebration of Eid-el-Kabir bring blessings to every household and inspire us all to work towards a better, more united nation. Let us seize this opportunity to reflect on our individual and collective responsibilities to each other, promoting a culture of empathy, generosity, and mutual respect.

In the spirit of Eid-el-Kabir, let us all strive to uphold the values of faith, sacrifice, and obedience. These principles are not only integral to our spiritual lives but are also essential for building a peaceful and progressive society. As we celebrate with joy and gratitude, let us also remember those in need and extend our hands in support and solidarity.

Happy Eid-el-Kabir to all. May this day be filled with joy, peace, blessings, and may our sacrifices be accepted
