(Qurban). The Day of the Great Festival, the Festival of the Sacrifice (Eid al adha), is that timeless moment when the slave stands in the Presence of Oneness having naughted, annihilated, slaughtered and sacrificed his own self. If only an atom of his own self remains, he cannot stand in this Presence. Unity of Place, Unity of Time and Unity of Essence have been realized. The slave has gone, departed, left his own self. Now he has no direction (qibla). "Withersoever ye turn, there is the Face of Allah" and "Allah is and there is nothing with Him".
