Dr Zahiri

A university professor Dr. Masoumeh Zahiri said, “Eid al-Adha is a practice of returning to oneself and serving God, in order to reach the peak of obedience and Servanthood."

Hawzah News Agency –An Iranian University Faculty Member Dr. Masoumeh Zahiri said in an interview that Eid al-Adha is considered as a return to oneself, renewing the covenant with God in obedience and Servanthood and moving towards heaven.

She added, “On this day, God subjected Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) to the test of sacrificing his son and for the sake of God, and this was the beginning of the test of submission to God's command.”

The university professor continued, “This day coincides with the movement of Imam Hussain (PBUH) with his children and his family on the path of enjoining good and forbidding evil.

Dr. Masoumeh Zahiri further noted that the Eid of Sacrifice and the Eid of Servanthood are a clear and instructive path and set an example for mankind and added, “Man does not reach his full spiritual potential unless he falls to the ground and prostrates at the threshold of God.”

Dr. Zahiri emphasized that Eid al-Adha has individual and social dimensions, which in the individual dimension Allah almighty reminds mankind to return to himself and this does not only include pilgrims, rather it manifests the abandoning hope in humans and making sacrifices in the way of God.

The university faculty member went on to say that In the social dimension, man learns that whatever he gives in the way of God will return to him, and acts of mercy and friendship, and helping the poor are meant to fill the gap between the rich and the poor.

Pointing out that Eid al-Adha is the Eid of kindness and training in the path of excellence, Dr Zahiri said, “On this special day, the practice is to lift one's heart, rise and move toward God, and serve God's people.”

She concluded by adding that Eid al-Adha institutionalizes joy and happiness in terms of being a righteous servant, social vitality, helping and creating justice in the society, and teaches people to follow their leader in the community.
