Eid al-Adha 2021 falls on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 or on 10 Dhu’l-Hijjah 1442 Hijri. The year 2021 is the second year for Muslims to carry out Eid al-Adha during the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic situation that requires us to limit activities outside the home, especially Eid al-Adha in 2021 to coincide with the ppkm period, does not reduce the spirit of Muslims to perform worship. Sacrificing is one of the characteristics of Eid al-Adha.

Qurban aims to draw closer to Allah SWT by sacrificing something that has. The essence of sacrificing in the pandemic is expected to be able to draw closer to Allah SWT as well as pray that this pandemic will end quickly.

Eid al-Adha symbolizes sincerity and patience in sacrificing, when The Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail were supported by Siti Hajar to sacrifice lives that were then replaced with sacrificial animals, for Muslims who are sufficiently sunk to sacrifice an animal, whether cattle, goats, or sheep.

In addition to sacrificing, khotib is recommended to deliver a khutbah that is in accordance with the current conditions, namely “Sacrifice in the Pandemic”. In the current pandemic, the theme of sacrifice and pandemic is the closest thing to us. The implementation of Eid al-Adha prayers also uses strict health protocols, such as keeping a distance, wearing a mask, and not shaking hands. This is done according to the advice of the government at the same time to take care of yourself and others.

Pandemic is a world problem today, especially in Indonesia which has a high Covid-19 rate. Hopefully in Eid al-Adha 2021, the world will recover as it was before.
