Iran Speaker Larijani Congratulates Muslim Counterparts on Eid Al-Adha
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani offered his congratulations to his counterparts in the Islamic countries on Eid al-Adha, which marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
In separate messages to his counterparts and outstanding figures in Muslim nations on Wednesday, Larijani described Eid al-Adha as one of the “deep” Islamic teachings that have provided an opportunity for Muslims to pass through “a critical historic juncture” through unity and empathy.
“Accordingly, I would like to emphasize that since the victory of the (1979) Islamic Revolution, the strategic policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been (based on) consolidation of unity, brotherhood and cooperation among Muslim countries,” he noted in the messages.
Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice) is an important festival on the Islamic calendar which marks the climax of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
During the festivities, Muslims pay tribute to Prophet Abraham's submission to the divine order of sacrificing his son.
