      Festivals and social life of human beings are closely inter-related. Since man has commenced social life on the earth, festivals have, perhaps, been held right through. There is no nation in the world, and has every been, which has not earmarked a few days for this purpose. The festivals are, in fact, the life line of the society. Getting together of individuals, demonstration of common sentiments, collective merry-making, performing uniform rituals signifies the binding trait, by which people collectively transform into a well-nit society, and not only spirit of unity takes route but gets refresh and revived, intermittently.

       

      Since Islam is a universal reforming movement, which is not related to a specific nation or country, rather invites people of the whole world towards a single Allah-worshiping culture. Hence, where it has moulded every part of human life into a peculiar mode, Festivals of Islam have also been given a unique shape, which is contrasting to all the other festivities in the world.

       

      Prophet Ibraheem Alaihissalam, (P.B.U.H), is submissive and docile subjects of Allah. Like him, they are also prepared to sacrifice their lives, offspring’s, wealth and every other belonging, on the will of Allah and their life and death is just for Allah. This spirit is reflected by the act of sacrificing animal and by the words uttered at the time of sacrificing animal.

       

      The form of celebrating Eid/Festival during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is outlined below, to give readers an idea, by which they can accurately visualize the decency of festivals.

       

      For anyone looking for precise information about the EID-UL-ADHA/Festival of Sacrifice, this book will help you to a better understanding of the topic. In this short book, Sayyid Maududi shatters stereotypes and clearly presents the topics.
