क्यों मनाया जाता है ईद उल जुहा (बकरीद का त्योहार) क्यों होता है कुर्बानी का मतलब

इस्लाम धर्म को मानने वाले लोगों का प्रमुख त्योहार माना जाता है-ईद उल जुहा, जो रमजान के पवित्र महीने की समाप्ति के लगभग 70 दिनों के बाद मनाया जाता है।

बकरीद यानी कुर्बानी की ईद। यह इस्लाम को मानने वाले लोगों का प्रमुख त्योहार है। यह रमजान के पवित्र महीने की समाप्ति के लगभग 70 दिनों के बाद मनाया जाता है। इस्लाम धर्म की मान्यता के अनुसार कहा जाता है कि अल्लाह ने हज़रत इब्राहिम को सपने में अपनी सबसे प्यारी चीज़ की कुर्बानी देने को कहा था।



हजरत इब्राहिम अपने बेटे से बहुत प्यार करते थे, इसलिए उन्होंने अपने बेटे की कुर्बानी देने का फैसला किया। हज़रत इब्राहिम ने जैसे ही अपने बेटे की कुर्बानी देनी चाही, अल्लाह की आज्ञा का पालन करते हुए अल्लाह को एक बकरे की कुर्बानी मिल गई। कहा जाता है कि तभी से बकरीद का त्योहार मनाया जाने लगा।


बकरीद का त्योहार हिजरी के आखिरी महीने जुलाई हिज्ज में मनाया जाता है। दुनिया भर के मुसलमान इस महीने में सऊदी अरब के मक्का में इकट्ठा होकर हज मनाते हैं। इस दिन ईद-उल-अजहा भी मनाया जाता है। वास्तव में, यह हज का एक हिस्सा भुगतान और मुसलमानों की भावनाओं का दिन है। दुनिया भर के मुसलमानों का एक समूह मक्का में हज करता है,

बाकी मुसलमानों के लिए अंतरराष्ट्रीय भावना का दिन बन जाता है। बकरीद के दिन मुसलमान बकरी, भेड़, ऊंट जैसे किसी भी जानवर की कुर्बानी देते हैं। इसमें उस पशु की बलि नहीं दी जा सकती जिसके शरीर का अंग टूट गया हो, फुहार हो या पशु बीमार हो। बकरीद के दिन कुर्बानी के मांस को तीन भागों में बांटा जाता है। एक अपने लिए, दूसरा रिश्तेदारों के लिए और तीसरा हिस्सा गरीब लोगों में बांटा जाता है।


Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2, Verse 17

"Avyaktādīni bhūtāni vyaktamadhyāni bhārata
Avyaktanidhanānyeva tatra kā paridevanā"

Translation in English:

"That which pervades the entire body, know it to be indestructible. No one can cause the destruction of the imperishable soul."

Meaning in Hindi:

"जो सम्पूर्ण शरीर में व्याप्त है, उसे अविनाशी जानो। कोई भी अविनाशी आत्मा के नाश का कारण नहीं बना सकता।"

Understanding the Importance of Christian Art as a Gateway to Religion Truths

Christianity, which is sufficient in artistic expressions and symbols, gives its members a way of visually expressing their faith’s deepest truths. Christian art has been a pathway for conveying the exegesis of theological concepts, biblical accounts and spiritual insights from time immemorial when icons were first made until the Renaissance. This paper delves into Christian art and symbolism to uncover the layers beneath this imagery as well as explore its profound significance within Christianity.

The Role of Art in Christian Tradition: Art has always been an important part of Christian worship since ancient times. Frescoes with scenes depicting Christ’s life, martyrs and stories from the Bible were painted on walls by Christians in Roman catacombs. Those works of art were used to teach churchgoers who could not read but wanted to know more about Christianity by showing them what it was all about.

Religious Symbolism in Art: Among the attributes of Christian Art is symbolic representation of spiritual aspects and theological ideas. Symbolism enables artists to make use of visual language to express difficult concepts, which can be understood across different languages and cultures. Some symbols have been so ingrained into the collective memory of Christians throughout history that they continue to serve as powerful reminders of faith.

The most iconic symbol in Christian art is the cross, which signifies Jesus Christ’s crucifixion at its epicenter. The meaning behind the cross extends beyond just a reminder of Christ’s death on behalf of humanity; it also serves as a constant symbol for hope for redemption and eternal life. Made from fine wood carvings, stained glass windows or huge sculptures, crosses have always stood as one strong signpost for forgiveness and divine love.

The dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit is another common symbol in Christian art. During the depiction of Jesus’ immersion, the dove descends from heaven to symbolize the Spirit’s presence upon Christ. The dove also connotes peace, purity and renewal of creation as indicated in Noah’s ark bible story and its manifestation through a dove carrying an olive branch.

Other symbols that frequently appear in Christian art include fish which represent Christ and his followers, lambs symbolizing Christ’s sacrificial death and anchors that signify unshakable faith during trying times. Each carries deep significance and multiple layers of meaning so that they can always allow Christians to reflect on their faith mysteries in order to be closer to God.
