Acting Ameer greets the countrymen on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Acting Ameer and former MP Professor Mujibur Rahman has issued the following statement on 26th June, 2023 extending greetings to the fellow countrymen on the occasion of holy Eid-ul-Adha.

The occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, enriched with the memories and lessons of Hazrat Ibrahim (A), his wife Hazera (A)and their beloved son Hazrat Ismail (A). Eid-ul-Adha inspires us to offer more sacrifice and dedication. It instills the spirit of sacrificing everything for attaining the satisfaction of Almighty Allah. This occasion also motivates us to establish a just society free from social discrimination and exploitation. We have to follow and comply with Islam wholeheartedly at all stages of life with the same spirit. Only then, we will be able to gain the satisfaction of Almighty Allah.

We are going to observe holy Eid-ul-Adha at such a time, when various crises including political crisis, financial crisis, social and ethical crisis are severely prevailing in the country. Law and order situation has been deteriorated alarmingly. Public lives are totally collapsed due to excessive bribery, corruption, murder, abduction, terrorism, rape and extortion.

Prices of essentials have gone out of common’s reach. When people are struggling to manage their daily food, how will they celebrate the joy of Eid-ul-Adha? The low-income people are passing deplorable lives but the government is not concerned about their sorrows.

The ruling party and the oppositions are face to face situation centering the upcoming national election. The government is desiring to stay in office and as such they are planning to a unilateral election which may push the country toward violence and anarchy. May Allah help us to get rid of this situation. May Allah pave the way for an amicable solution.

Ahead of the Eid-ul-Adha, we are recalling the inspiring memories of Hazrat Ibrahim (A), his wife Hazera (A)and their beloved son Hazrat Ismail (A). Likely their sacrifices, if we can sacrifice our dearest lives, wealth and other staff for the sake of Allah in order to establish the rule of Allah on this earth, only then our sacrifice and efforts will be successful.

I personally and on behalf of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami extend the greetings of Eid-ul-Adha to my fellow countrymen. I am also praying the peace, happiness, prosperity, and security, and safties for my fellow countrymen.
