Korban...







I was privilege to witness one of the most important events for the Muslims around the world that morning. Aidil Adha marks the end of pilgrimage period hence the name Hari Raya Haji. Aidil Adha also called Feast of the Sacrifice (Hari Raya Korban) symbolically marks the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son own in obedience to God. Now Aidil Adha is celebrated to commemorate in conjunction of the Haj or pilgrimage and also to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim spirit of sacrifice or korban. It was a wonderful as I have the chance to witness the act of sacrifice with my family though indifferent of race and religion. To me, knowing and experience the event are the ways of how we show our respect of others.
