FESTIVALS IN ISLAM

There are
three main festivals of Muslims in Islam, They are:

MILAD UN NABI
EID UL FITR
EID UL ADHA

Let’s
discuss them about their origin and other details.

MILAD UN NABI: 
This is the birth day of the beloved Prophet Hazarath Mohammed Mustafa
Sallah hu Wallia wah sallam. He had born in the City of Mecca in Saudi Arabia,
which is the holy place for all the muslims of all over the world. Prophet
Mohammed was orphaned at early age brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib.
There are many Prophets of Islam, but Mohammed is the last prophet and He is
the messenger of ALLAH.

Prophet
Mohammed was born in 12 Rabi al Awwal, Year 11 A.H. According to Quran Prophet
Mohmmed was very close to ALLAH and he is the messenger of ALLAH.  The days were very worst before the Era of
Prophet Mohmmed there were no etiquettes, manners, respect or anything. The
position of women before Islam was very bad. Women were used as a device of
entertainment and the life of human has no value that period was called as Daur
e Jahalath. But after the birth of Prophet Mohammed, the worst scenario came to
its end. Prophet mohammed was sent by Allah to make end of all the sins from
the world and to make people to walk on the path of humanity.

 Prophet Mohammed taught to the people of that
period to follow the direction of Allah who says to walk on the path of Truth
and harmony. Prophet Mohammed says there is no God except ALLAH and Mohmmed
Mustafa is Allah’s messenger. The days after prophet Mohammed came to the world
had a drastic change and the period of inhumanity came to end. 

The festival
of MILAD UN NABI is celebrated in the joy and happiness of the birth of Prophet
Mohammed it is the happiest day of all the Muslims of the World. This festival
is celebrated in the entire World.

EID UL FITR: Eid is the Arabic word means
festivity and Fitr means breaking of fast. EID UL FITR is the festival which is
celebrated after the completion of the holy month of RAMADAN or RAMZAN. Ramzan
is the holy month of Islam it is for 29 or 30 days depends on the moon. Ramzan
is the most holy month in which all the Muslims all over the world keep fasting
by not eating or drinking anything until sunset. Prophet Mohammad struggled a
lot in this month to spread Islam in different places by being hungry and
thirsty and the Holy Quran also came to the earth in this holy month of Ramzan.
So the people follow the steps of their beloved prophet. So after completing
the holy month they celebrate the festival called EID UL FITR.

People use
to wake up early for Fajr Salah (the prayer of early morning) they wear new
clothes and offer EID salah in Eidgahs or Masjids near to their areas. People
specially children will more excited on that day because they will get money
from their elders which is called EIDY and gifts. This is most enjoyable
festival of all the muslim throughout the world. The salah or namaz of Eid will
be special and it is not a regular it is apart from all regular namaz. The
people also donate money or clothes to the poor and needy people which is
called as ZAKATH. This is the most important and its compulsory for those who
are financially strong.
EID UL ADHA (BAKRID): Eid ul Adha is the festival of
Sacrifice. This is celebrated in the holy month of Zil hajj. Eid ul adha is
celebrated worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his
son Ismail as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him
with a sheep to sacrifice instead. Once Ibrahim was commanded by God to
sacrifice his most precious thing and Ibrahim once got a dream that he is
slaughtering his son ismail. He followed the order of the god and told his son
ismail that it’s the God will that I must lost you for God in way of sacrifice.
Ismail by listening this had not shown any sort of hesitation and he was agree
and told to his father that he is ready for sacrifice if it is Allah’s will. While
his prepration of the command given by allah, ismail was getting his mind
diverted by the devils which is called Shaitaan, but ismail rejected all their
efforts which it make to divert the mind of Ismail.

        When Ibrahim with his son Ismail was
about to perform the act of slaughtering his son before that Ibrahim was crying
but his son and Ibrahim himself had lot of faith in Allah then while
slaughtering Ibrahim found a goat was gotten slaughter in place of Ismail. So
that means Allah was just taking a test of Ibrahim to know how much he believes
in Allah. And he got success in his test of sacrifice.

So that’s
why all the Muslims on the eve of EID UL ADHA will slaughter the animal in the
name of Allah. On the day of EID UL ADHA all the people got up early in the
morning to offer fajr salah after taking bath which is called Ghusl and wear
new clothes and they also offer namaz of EID which is special. After namaz all
the muslims greet each other by saying EID MUBARAK to each other. It is the day
with full of enjoyment. People of all ages will be happy and excited on that
day. They go to meet their family members to greet them and people specially
children will be happier because they get lots of gifts and money. Eid ul Adha
is celebrated throughout the world.

These
festivals not only spread happiness but also they spread harmony and peace in
the world. It is mostly observed that people of different religions also greet
each other and they meet to Muslims and greet them by saying EID MUBARAK.

These
festivals fill the gap which happened due to some political disturbances among
the people of various religions. 
Festivals not only spread the excitement but also it helps the world to
live like brothers.

Today the world
is facing many types of wars like war for countries, war for positions,
financial wars, religious wars, terrorism and etc. But the festivals of any
religion work as water to control the fire of wars which the world is facing.
Mostly in every war the victims are common people only. So our religious
beliefs and festivals spread love and affection among the people and they are
mostly helpful in spreading harmony.

 Today the most essential requirement of the
world is to stop wars and killing of decent people. No one likes war then the
big question of the world is why only war had became the solution for all the
litigation. The problem which is more complicated also can be solved by love,
then why war and killings.
