Juba, South Sudan
July 19, 2021 — South Sudan Muslim community will join the world in commemorating Eid Al-Adha tomorrow according to their Secretary General.
Abdullah Barag, Secretary General of South Sudan Muslim Council, says Eid-Al Adha sacrifice is the feast of redemption and generosity that comes after the Eid al-Fitr two months after the holy month of Ramadan.
Baraq said according to both Bible and Quran, Abraham offered his son Isaac for sacrifice but before he could do so, Almighty God (Allah)substituted his son with a lamb to be sacrificed instead.
The Secretary General of South Sudan Islamic Council congratulates all South Sudanese on this day.
“This feast is the feast of redemption and also it is the feast of generosity and it’s God’s command as he ordered Abraham to slaughter his son and when he accepts God gives him a big sheep from heaven and it becomes Sunnah every year,” Barag said as quoted by a local radio station.
“Those who are capable can slaughter animals for the poor people so that they can also celebrate because it is a day of happiness, cooperation, and solidarity.” he added.
He says he would like to seize this opportunity to extend his congratulatory message and blessings to all Muslims around the world and indeed his South Sudanese fellow Muslims in particular.
“I am taking this chance to extend my congratulations and blessings to the Islamic nation all over the world and particularly Muslims and all the people of South Sudan.”
