Ayatollah Khamenei congratulates world Muslims on Eid al-Adha

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has extended his congratulations to Muslim nations across the world over the grand festivity of Eid al-Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice).

In a message on his X account, Ayatollah Khamenei said he congratulates all Muslims and followers of Abrahamic religions on the blessed Eid al-Adha.

"I ask Almighty God to hurry the coming of the day of victory for Palestine, and that day will definitely come," the Leader stated.

Millions of Muslims in Iran and other countries on Monday mark Eid al-Adha, one of the most important festivities on the Islamic calendar, amid the continuation of the Israeli regime's genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

The occasion commemorates the historic submission of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) to Divine order to sacrifice his son, Ismail, an exemplary act of faith which was rewarded by God by providing Abraham with a ram to sacrifice instead.

The Eid falls on the 10th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah on the lunar calendar every year.

During Hajj, pilgrims perform certain rituals on Eid al-Adha, along with the symbolic stoning of the devil.

In his annual Hajj message on Saturday, Ayatollah Khamenei called on Muslims worldwide to support the Palestinian resistance and people against "the ruthless Zionist regime".

The issue of renunciation of the polytheists or bara'at in Qur'anic terms was the central point of the Leader's Hajj messages.

Ayatollah Khamenei asserted that the issue of bara'at is more significant than ever amid the Israeli-American genocidal war against Palestinians in Gaza.

He added that the renunciation of the Zionist regime and its supporters, especially the US, must be “demonstrated in words and actions” to bring an end to the murderous onslaught on Palestinians.
