Eid ul-Adha Hassan Rouhani greetings

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has extended his sincere greetings to leaders of Muslim countries on Eid ul-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice), which marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

In his congratulatory messages on Tuesday, Hassan Rouhani described the occasion of Eid ul-Adha as “the season of slaughtering worldly belongings, giving up desires in the way of the true beloved, and manifesting pure faith in and obedience before God.”

He expressed hope that thanks to the blessing of this festival, all Muslims around the world would be able to achieve divine perfection and mercy by freeing themselves of the desires of the heart and sacrificing their lives and property to help other Muslims and fellow humans beings in need.

Muslims traditionally celebrate Eid ul-Adha, one of the most important religious festivities, with the sacrifice of animals like sheep, rams, goats and cattle.

The act commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s submission to divine order to sacrifice his son, Ismail. Just before sacrificing his son, Allah provided Prophet Ibrahim with a ram to sacrifice instead after he successfully passed the divine test.

Also, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif took to Twitter to congratulate all Muslims on the occasion, praying for a world without terrorism.

“Felicitations to all Muslims on the auspicious occasion of #EidAlAdha,” he wrote. “As far fewer perform Hajj because of pandemic, let’s pray to the Almighty to rid the world of not just corona but also other viruses: arrogance, coercion, terrorism—incl #EconomicTerrorism & #MedicalTerrorism,” he tweeted.
