Abraham Day, otherwise referred to as Eid al-Adha, is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two.
It honors the willingness of Abraham to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God's command, before God intervened by sending his Angel Gabriel who informed him (Abraham) that his sacrifice had already been accepted.
During the observance of the day, Muslim pilgrims from around the world performing the Hajj which is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, cast pebbles at a pillar on the Jamaraat Bridge in Mina, in a symbolic renunciation of the devil.
Sheikh Sumaworo in his message said the peace and development of Liberia depends on the youths of the country, and therefore stressed the need for them to stay committed and obedient in society.
He emphasized that Liberians should strive to live in peace with each other in order to move the development agenda of the country forward, adding, "Liberians should work together to maintain peace and stability as the nation prepares for the 2017 General and Presidential Elections."
Sheikh Sumaworo cautioned Liberians not to engage in activities that will create confusion and undermine the peace of the nation.
He thanked President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Unity Party-led Government for the peace and stability prevailing in the country and hoped that every Liberian will continue to uphold the serenity of the State.
