Quaid-e-Azam’s Message to the Nation on Eid-ul-Adha

November 27, 2009

Quaid’s message first delivered on 24th of October 1947, still inspirational, motivational and thought-provoking for the Pakistani Nation

“God often tests and tries those whom he loves. He called upon Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice the object he loved most. Ibrahim answered the call and offered to sacrifice his son. Today too, God is testing and trying the Muslims of Pakistan and India. He has demanded great sacrifices from us. Our new-born State is bleeding from wounds inflicted by our enemies. Our Muslim brethren in India are being victimized and oppressed as Muslims for their help and sympathy for the establishment of Pakistan. Dark clouds surround us on all sides for the moment but we are not daunted, for I am sure, if we show the same spirit of sacrifice as was shown by Ibrahim, God would rend the clouds and shower on us His blessing as He did on Ibrahim. Let us, therefore, on the day of Eid-ul-Azha which symbolizes the spirit of sacrifice enjoined by Islam, resolve that we shall not be deterred from our objective of creating a State of our own concept by any amount of sacrifice, trials or tribulations which may lie ahead of us and that we shall bend all our energies and resources to achieve our goal. I am confident that in spite of its magnitude, we shall overcome this grave crisis as we have in our long history surmounted many others and notwithstanding the efforts of our enemies, we shall emerge triumphant and strong from the dark night of suffering and show the world that the State exists not for life but for good life.

On this sacred day, I send greetings to our Muslim brethren all over the world both on behalf of myself and the people of Pakistan. For us Pakistan, on this day of thanksgiving and rejoicing, has been overshadowed by the suffering and sorrow of 5 million Muslims in East Punjab and its neighborhood. I hope that, wherever Muslim men and women foregather on this solemn day. They will remember in their prayers these unfortunate men, women and children who have lost their dear ones, homes and hearths and are undergoing an agony and suffering as great hand cruel as any yet inflicted on humanity. In the name of this mass of suffering humanity I renew my appeal to Muslims wherever they may be, to extend to us in this hour of our danger and need, their hand of brotherly sympathy, support and co-operation. Nothing on earth now can undo Pakistan.

The greater the sacrifices are made the purer and more chastened shall we emerge like gold from fire.

So my message to you all is of hope, courage and confidence. Let us mobilize all our resources in a systematic and organized way and tackle the grave issues that confront us with grim determination and discipline worthy of a great nation.

Pakistan Zinda-o-Paindabaad

  6. Its upto us how we paste this message on today’s board and ponder what must we do…
    words are no more enough
    actions are needed
    we must join hands to bring the dream of Quaid e Azam true
    I am available to cooperate in whatever way I can individually and from the collective forum of Umeed e Sehar The Reformers .

  7. The speech did not have any slightest of self-glorifying rhetoric and the main focus was to “CORRECT OURSELVES”

    Will AHMED QURESHIz, HAMID GULz and ZAID typoz kindly note it

    • @MB
      Zaid Hamid in one of his analysis on Pakistan First quoted a Hadith ‘People that get the leaders they deserve’, and said we as Muslims and Pakistanis should correct ourselves!

  8. A lovely and inspirational speech from the Founder of our Homeland, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, May his Soul Rest in Peace, Ameen. Its really true of what he said that Muslims throughout the World and Pakistan should very Systematically and in an Organized way get their resources together to lend a helping hand to Suffering Muslim brothers and sisters within Pakistan and other muslim countries INSHALLAH. I’m sure its high-time for us Muslims and Pakistanis to get our act together and seriously contribute towards being a Responsible and Proud Civilian of a great nation History knows as Pakistan.

    May Allah Bless Muslims all over the World and Pakistan! Ameen

  9. Quid e Azam rightly said nothing on earth can undo Pakistan…no doubt there is Saya e Khuda e Zuljala.

  10. this speech was made after creation of pakistan , still he’s saying
    ” we shall not be deterred from our objective of creating a State of our own concept by any amount of sacrifice, trials or tribulations which may lie ahead of us and that we shall bend all our energies and resources to achieve our goal”

    i am wondering what was the goal after creation of pakistan ?

  11. I don’t know If I said it already but …Cool site, love the info. I do a lot of research online on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. long live pakistan Thanks
