The Symbolic Meaning Behind Eid Ul-Adha


The Symbolic Meaning Behind Eid Ul-Adha

7 Jul 2022
by Stefanie

From the beautiful and colourful traditions to the smiles and laughter of the community, Malaysia has always been such a wonderful place to grow up in. Then comes the holidays we get to enjoy when our brothers and sisters of other races and religions are celebrating their respective festivals and cultures. We seem to know about it yet it also feels like we can be a little more educated and aware for the betterment of our community and country.

Hence, we’re here to shed some light on the symbolic meaning of Eid Ul-Adha!

Eid Ul-Adha, or more commonly known as Hari Raya Haji in our community, is a celebration that focuses more on the giving rather than the receiving as what Eid Mubarak, or Hari Raya Aidilfitri is all about. Marking the end of the haj pilgrimage period, Hari Raya Haji is celebrated usually about 2 months from Hari Raya Aidilfitri and commemorates a month of blessings and self-reflection.

One of the most important practices that’s observed during Hari Raya Haji is the korban, or sacrifice. Worshippers make their way to the mosque for prayers as well as the contribution of livestock such as goats and cows. These animals will be slaughtered and cleaned before being distributed to the needy, reminding worshippers to focus on the spirit of giving and strengthening of friendship and familial ties.
