President Md Abdul Hamid on Monday greeted the countrymen and the Muslims across the world on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Azha to be celebrated tomorrow here.

In a message, the President said the spirit of sacrifice of Eid-ul-Azha is a unique example of showing respect and love to the almighty Allah, reports BSS.

Hazrat Ibrahim (AS), he said, has set an incomparable example of love, obedience and sacrifice to Allah by taking steps to sacrifice his beloved son Hazrat Ismail (AS) by the directive of Allah.

“Azha means Qurbani (sacrifice),” he said, adding that sacrifice instills the spirit of self-sacrifice into all and also teaches them the spirit of sharing happiness and sorrow with relatives and neighbors.

The President said this year the Eid-ul-Azha is being celebrated at a time when the world community is distraught witnessing a catastrophe arisen out of coronavirus pandemic as many people are in hardship at different parts of the world including Bangladesh.
