By instituting the Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, Islam draws the attention of Jews, Christians and Muslims to the religion preached and practised by Abraham. It was a simple religion of belief in oneness of God, submission to Him, and being prepared to sacrifice what we love in His way. Later followers of Abraham made his religion into one of elaborate rituals and theological controversies on small matters of detail. Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha remind us all that we should turn back to Abraham’s religion of simplicity and sincerity, and that Jews, Christians and Muslims come from the same religious origin.
