Eid ul Adha is a perfect starting point for working through our issues and problems, as it is a spiritual story; it is a story of every one of us. It is a solemn holiday that reminds us how obedience to our Lord is the answer to everything. This means surrendering your life, your whole being, all that you are, all that you have and all that you identify with to the Lord.
When you sacrifice everything that you identify with to Allah, He gives to you your authentic and eternal self. That is the spiritual “secret” that many of us seek. Both Eid and Hajj serve as a special occasion that definitely gets one in touch with this “secret”.
