SRINAGAR: Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Mehmood Shah has greeted Muslims on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha saying the idea of the Eid is to sacrifice the most valuable belonging one has, for Allah.
Shah in a statement issued here said, “Ibraheem (AS) was tested when he was ordered to sacrifice his beloved son Ismail (AS). They both passed the test. Allah (SWT) was pleased with them and sent a sheep from the heavens to be sacrificed instead of Ismail (AS). Allah (SWT) liked their act so much that He ordered all the believers to follow the Sunnah of Ibrahim (AS) by sacrificing animals on the eve of Eid-ul-Adha.”
He said today Muslims are in “oppression” and “to get rid of the crisis, we need to sacrifice our wishes and ego”.
“We have to obey Allah (SWT) the way Ibrahim (AS) and Ismail (AS) obeyed. Allah (SWT) sees the hearts of the believers that how much they love their Lord, and what they can do for Him. He (SWT) checks how much the Muslims follow the Prophet Muhammad (SAW),” he said.
LeT chief said that Islam is a complete code of conduct and a believer is supposed to follow Islam in all aspects of life. “This is how we can please the Lord of the Universe,” he said.
“Another message of Eid-ul-Adha is to be gentle towards others. So, be generous towards the families of the martyrs and remember those languishing in prisons,” Shah said.
