عيد مبارك سعيد
Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى, 'Feast of the Sacrifice', or Eid Qurban (Persian: عيد قربان), also called the "Festival of the Sacrifice", is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year (the other being Eid al-Fitr), and considered the holier of the two. It honours the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham)to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God's command. But, before Abraham could sacrifice his son, God provided a lam
The word العيد (al-ʿīd) means 'festival', 'celebration', 'feast day', or 'holiday'. It comes from the triliteral root عيد (ʿīd) with associated root meanings of "to go back, to rescind, to accrue, to be accustomed, habits, to repeat, to be experienced; appointed time or place, anniversary, feast day." Arthur Jefferycontests this etymology, and believes the term to have been borrowed into Arabic from Syriac, or less likely Targumic Aramaic.
The word ًأضحى (Adha) and قربان (qorban) means 'the sacrificial of animal'. It comes from the triliteral root ضحو (dhahawa) with associated meanings 'daylight... to appear, to appear conspicuously... sacrificial animal, to sacrifice'. No occurrence of this root with a meaning related to sacrifice occurs in the Qur'an. Christians use the term to mean Eucharistic host. In the Islamic Arabic tradition, it is held to derive from the root قرب (qaraba) with associated meanings of "closeness, proximity... to moderate; kinship...; to hurry; ...to seek, to seek water sources...; scabbard, sheath; small boat; sacrifice."Arthur Jeffery recognizes the same Semitic root, but believes the sense of the term to have entered Arabic through Aramaic.
