Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, on the eve of the holy Eid-Ul-Azha, urged all to devote themselves in the welfare of the country being imbued with the spirit of sacrifice.
"Eid-ul-Azha means the festival of sacrifice. Let us devote ourselves, being imbued with the spirit of sacrifice, for the welfare of the country and its people," she said today in a video message to greet the people of the country on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
She said the unique instance set by Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) by sacrificing his dearest thing for the satisfaction of Allah will be imitated and followed forever.
Through celebrating the festival, affluent Muslims build the bonding of compassion and equality among people by distributing meat of their sacrificial animals among relatives, neighbors and poor and distressed people, she added.
Noting that the coronavirus is mounting up again, she said Allah tests patience of human being in crisis.
During crisis, all will have to extend cooperation to each other keeping endless patience with tolerant and sympathetic mindsets, she said.
Besides, she urged all to sacrifice their animals in designated places following health guidelines properly.
The premier urged all to celebrate Eid at home with families and relatives and offer special doa to Allah as all get recovery from the coronavirus transmission.
She hoped like every year this Eid will also bring happiness and message of joy to all irrespective of the rich and the poor.
Sheikh Hasina prayed to Allah for continued peace, progress and prosperity of the country and Muslim Ummah on the auspicious occasion.
