Eid 2018
Eid 2018

Eid-ul-Adha also called the festival of sacrifice is one of the most important religious festivals in Muslim’s Calendar.  Muslim celebrated this festival with great enthusiasm and dedication around all over the world.

Muslims perform qurbani/sacrifice the animal according to their financial background. This act is done in order to remember Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and his willingness to sacrifice his son for the sake of Allah Almighty. Many people do the sacrifice at their houses and others look for community centers.

Cleanliness is half of faith!

The concept of  “safai” or cleanliness is promoted by Islam, how can we forget about it on the day of Eid? You are sacrificing and obeying the orders of Allah but you are neglecting another command. 

Cleanliness is half of Imaan so this Eid-ul-Adha, practice this half too.

Dumping the remains on roadsides

One of the major problems that every Pakistani face on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha faces is, remains of animals at the road side. People just don’t take care of their animal remains. Instead of properly disposing it off in the bags provided by cantonment board authorities and handing over them accordingly in the evening, they just focus on the collection and distribution of meat. 

These remains of sacrificial animals either lie on the road side, or on empty plots which are already debris of garbage, thereby producing unbearable smell and polluting environment. This unethical act of educated citizens of Pakistan have a negative impact on the environment.

Instead of throwing slaughter waste on the streets sides. Properly dispose it off in the plastic bag , so that workers of cantonment board will pick it up later!

Walking in the pool of blood

The blood of sacrificial animal on the streets gathers on the loose pits on the streets and thereby creating a puddle of blood. This should be avoided for the sake of others.

Each year Eid-ul-Adha turn roads into blood pools.

Use Bhalu Rait, Please!

When you are buying the animal, you can also buy a special kind of soil called Sand soil (bhalu rait). This special kind of soil act as a good absorbent and absorbs liquid on which it is placed. People should buy this soil in bulk for use after qurbani. This soil can be placed over blood of sacrificial animal so that the blood remains cover and does not create pollution.

Eid-ul-Adha pledge for this year

This year try to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha in an eco-friendly manner. Protect the environment as it is also the gift of Allah.
