As-Salamu alaikum. Eid Mubarak to all. So many rituals and celebrations in this wonderful eid. So many ways to reflect on what it is and why.
For one thing, it reminds us how a young man, Ibrahim, challenged the norms of then society and broke the idols.
Today, we do not find those kind of idols among ourselves. But they are there in a different shape and form. Perhaps these are in the Mosques, in the government, at our work, in the market, at our homes. in our own hearts. The Ummah, the nation, the Community, the self is in need of a young(not necessarily by age) Ibrahim who can break these idols.
