Muslims and non-Muslims alike – often criticise the ritual of slaughtering animals during – ফাহাম আব্দুস সালাম

Muslims and non-Muslims alike – often criticise the ritual of slaughtering animals during Eid ul Adha. While I often find it hypocritical because often these people are not vegetarians, I never find it offensive because many argue against this practice genuinely. But I am also aware that for a vast majority of Bangladeshis this is the only occasion of enjoying red meat.

The problem is elsewhere. One needs to take – I think criticism of Islam a little dispassionately. You do not need to defend every aspect of Islam. The religion has survived a millennium without your effort, it’ll survive another without yours.

The core issue is you are here to please God and God only. Can you do that without humility? So what someone find your beliefs offensive? Does that matter, really? Why do you feel the necessity to make everyone understand what you are doing is right? When you asking for mercy and love, can you really afford to be judgmental? Can you?

Please God, not your ego. The former at least won’t cause trouble to others, the latter most certainly will.
