Celebration of Eid Al-Adha 2020

The voices coming from Mosques show that man’s efforts to seek Allah have been going on for a long time. This effort continues in every religion and community. This prayer and other religious practices have been going on since ancient times in different forms. Some events in the sequence take the form of a festival.

One such festival is Eid Al-Adha or Bakra Eid. It is also called Eid-ul-Azha and Eid-ul-Adha. Bakra Eid is one of the two grand festivals of Muslims which is celebrated with great enthusiasm by Muslims. This festival comes two months after the Eid-Al-Fitr.

Eid-ul-Azha is also called the festival of sacrifice. Muslims celebrate the day with the belief of pleasing Allah by sacrificing goats, camels, etc. After offering that sacrifice, its meat is made, which is distributed among poors, relatives, and friends.

When is Eid Al-Adha 2020?

In 2020, Eid Al-Adha is on 31st July 2020 worldwide. However, the Imams of Delhi announced 1st August 2020 to be the date of celebration in India based on the sight of the moon.

According to Muslim religion why Eid ul-Adha is celebrated?

It is said that this day is celebrated to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet of Muslims and ancestor of Hazrat Mohammad, Hazrat Ibrahim. Allah tested him and demanded Hazrat Ibrahim to sacrifice his most valuable thing ― his beloved son.

Eid Al-Adha 2020: Hazrat Ibrahim Ji obeyed Allah and decided to sacrifice his son Hazrat Ismail. When Hazrat Ibrahim was going to sacrifice his son, Allah placed a goat in place of his son. And, this way Ibrahim Ji succeeded in his test. Muslims celebrate the day as Bakra Eid for this reason.

What does Eid mean?

Eid is an Arabic word that means “festival”. The day of EidAl-Adha is counted as a special day for Muslims all over the world. That’s why it is called “Eid”. And, it is called “Eid Al-Adha” because “Adha” means “Sacrifice” and this festival is the festival of sacrifice.

Eid Al-Adha Sacrifice and Rules

Some of the rules for the sacrifice on Eid according to the Islamic theories are:

  • The animal to be slaughtered should be physically healthy.
  • The animal should not be hungry or thirsty.
  • It should be tried to keep the animal calm before slaughtering.
  • The animal’s head should not be cut off before it’s completely dead.

These are some of the rules made by Muslim Clerics and not by Allah.

You read above how Eid Al-Adha is said to have started. The only thing Allah demanded was the sacrifice of “Hazrat Ibrahim’s beloved son” and nothing. There is no order of Allah for you to sacrifice (slaughter) an animal. It was not even started by Prophet Muhammad or his 1,80 thousand direct disciples. This tradition of slaughtering was started by ignorant Muslim Clerics. They are misleading you. You sin when following them you perform or take part in this slaughter.

Prophet Muhammad never ate meat or slaughtered animal

Here are these Vaanis of Saint Garib Das Ji on this,

Gareeb, nabi Muhammad Namaskar hai, Ram Rasool kahaya|
Ek lakh assi kun sogandh, jin nahin karad chalaya||

Gareeb, aras kuras par Alah Takhat hai, Khalik bin nahin khali|
Ve paigamber paak purush the, Saahib ke abdaali||

In these Vaanis, Saint Garib Das Ji says that Hazrat Muhammad was a respectable soul. He was recognized as a Prophet of (Ram) God. Along with him, his 180 thousand disciples never put a knife on any animal. These all were pious souls of Allah. The Supreme Allah resides above. There is nothing hidden from him.

These Vaanis of Respected Saint Garib Das Ji Maharaj Ji prove that Prophet Muhammad never ate meat nor his 180 thousand direct disciples. Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji tells that this tradition of slaughtering animals and eating meat was started by Muslim Clerics. The story is as follows:

Origin of slaughtering animals in Islam

Hazrat Muhammad once killed a goat by Word Power and then restored it back to life. Some people believed that; others did not. They asked him to do it in front of all of them. A day was decided for this. On that day, Prophet Muhammad killed a cow in front of the audience by Word Power. They checked the cow. It was dead.

Then, when it came to resurrecting it, Prophet Muhammad lost his Word Power that he had acquired from Allah Kabir Ji (Allah Kabir Ji had met Muhammad Ji in a Jinda Baba attire and had taken him to Satlok but Hazrat Muhammad did not accept His Knowledge because of the fear of the Angel Jibril and his honor. Because of accompanying by God Kabir Ji, he temporarily acquired some Power of God, that finished after killing the cow).

Prophet Muhammad could not revive the dead cow. Then, he bowed down and remembered Allah Kabir Ji, chanting, “Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar.” Allah Kabir Ji came there. Only Prophet Muhammad could see Him. He revived the dead cow and disappeared.

Saint Garib Das Ji has written this incident in his Vaani as,

Jab Hamou mohmad yad kiya re| Shabd Swaroopi Hum beg gayo re||
Mui gau Hum tatkaal jivai| Jab mohamad ke nishchay aayi||
Tum Kabir Alah Darvesha| Momin Muhammad ka gaya andesha||

Meaning: After Allah Kabir Ji restored the dead cow back to life, Prophet Muhammad realized that in reality, Allah is Kabir who met him in the Jinda Baba attire.

Then, a couple of centuries after the death of Prophet Muhammad and his 180 thousand direct disciples, some Muslim Clerics, inspired by Satan (Kaal), decided to make some celebration in order to keep remembering both the occasions when Prophet Muhammad revived a dead cow and a dead goat. They decided to kill the animals by Halal on both days.

Eating Meat is a Sin

They were still so compassionate that they made the rule to cut the animal gently (Halal) so that it didn’t feel pain and, then, threw the dead animal in the jungle so that other animals could bless the soul of that dead animal by eating its meat. No Muslim used to eat meat. It was considered a sin then. The same happened for a few centuries.

Then, there occurred a severe famine, and some Muslims ate the meat of the killed animal. Other Muslims complained about that with their Clerics. Thousands of such complaints were made. The Clerics thought that it would not be wise to condemn thousands of Muslims to death. They found an alternative and announced:

“Because of reading Kalama while killing the animal, its meat became sacred food. Therefore, they did not commit sin.”

The same incident happened in the second Eid. This way, the tradition of slaughtering of animals and eating meat started in Islam. When it was started, they had some different purpose (Even that is a sin though). Today’s Muslims eat meat just because of the taste of the tongue. That’s a grave sin.

Eid Al-Adha 2020 (Bakra Eid) Quotes

“Ancient humans followed a strict vegetarian diet for a healthy body and a humble lifestyle. Whoever used to consume meat was regarded as a Demon”.

“Nabi Muhammad is respectable, who is called the prophet. His 180 thousand followers never consumed meat”.

Eid Al-Adha 2020 quotes

“Eating Meat is a heinous sin. We should never eat meat. Stop eating meat forever”~Saint Rampal Ji.

Eid Al-Adha quotes

“We all living beings are children of one supreme God, so don’t slaughter/Halal them”.

“Our Allah is merciful — so should we towards His souls. It’s a heinous sin to kill innocent animals for the taste of the tongue”.

Sacrifice your vices and not Allah’s beings. This will please Him a lot.

Do animals feel pain when slaughtered (Halal)?

Yes, the animals do feel immense pain while being slaughtered. They cry out their pain. But, the ignorant Muslim religious leaders made Muslims so pitiless that they do not see its pain. Some of the Muslims even doubt that the animal they are cutting has a soul or not. Supreme God Kabir Ji used to give lessons on being compassionate towards other beings to both Hindus and Muslims. Because Hindus used to say that they cut the animal with Jhatka (instant killing) method, thus, they do not let the animal feel the pain of killing, and hence, they do not sin.

While, Muslims used to say that they kill the animal with Halal method in which they cut the animal so gently that it doesn’t feel pain, and thus, they do not sin. Supreme God Kabir Ji used to say to both of them,

“If you truly believe that the animal doesn’t feel the pain by your method of killing and thus you don’t sin, then get yourself cut the way you prefer. Then, see who feels pain and who doesn’t.”

None of the religious leaders used to come forward.

Hindu jhatke maarhi, or Muslim kare halal|
Gareebdas dahu deen ka, vahan hoga haal behaal||

Meaning: God Kabir Ji used to say to both of them that Hindus kill with Jhatka and Muslims kill with Halal. Both of them will suffer extremely in the Court of God. Therefore, quit all these vices right now. This killing and meat-eating tradition were started by Satan (Kaal). Don’t get misled by your ignorant religious leaders. Take the Shelter of the Supreme Saint SatGuru Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji.
